Bust the Anglo-Saudi Axis of Terror — Before It Kills Again

November 17, 2015

LaRouchePAC activists rallied at the United Nations in New York with this message yesterday, and received a powerful, "raw" response to their organizing, from diplomats, New Yorkers and foreign visitors alike. Their mobilization: Release the classified 28 Pages, expose the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks. Stop "Londonistan," the recruiting base of terrorists, and Riyadh, their funder and Wahhabite "educator," before they can strike again.

The evidence was coming out internationally on Monday, as "everything was changing" as a result of Russian President Putin's resolute Syria action, and now the shock of the new Paris murders. Putin announced he personally briefed G20 leaders in Ankara with Russia's intelligence on terrorist funders "in the G20 countries"; India's Prime Minister Modi called there for striking at terrorism where it is financed; denunciations of the Saudis' leading role came from British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, from the Italian Catholic bishops' publication Famiglia Cristiana, from American journalists opposing the Bush-Obama perpetual wars.

LPAC calling out the Saudis for funding terrorism. Outside of the United Nations, Monday.

Obama, who thought ISIS was "contained," was under intense pressure at Antalya, Turkey to concede to a war on jihadi terrorism led by Putin and shocked European leaders. French President Hollande told the French Parliament session, "We must eliminate, not contain, Daesh [isis]."

Release the 28 Pages now! This part of the 2002 report of the "Report of the Joint Inquiry into the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001" which lays out the Saudi responsibility for the 9/11 attacks according to then Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Sen. Bob Graham, has been hidden by George W. Bush and Barack Obama for 13 years. Its public release alone will change U.S. policy, according to members of Congress who have viewed it.

Mobilize to release this evidence now, showing that Obama's and Cameron's "regime-change" wars are in open alliance with the terrorists.

On Jan. 7, 2015, just hours after terrorists staged an assault on the Paris offices of the satirical publication Charlie Hebdo and killed a dozen people, former U.S. Senator Bob Graham (D-Fla.) joined House of Representatives Members Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Steven Lynch (D-Mass.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), and representatives of the 9/11 families in a Capitol Hill press conference, convened to demand the immediate release of the 28 page chapter from the original 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry  on 9/11, which detailed the role of the Saudi Royal Family in financing the 19 hijackers.

Senator Graham's words are even more profound and urgent today, in the wake of the Nov. 13 Paris massacres by Islamic State-allied butchers. Graham told the standing-room only crowd:

"The Saudis know what they did. They are not persons who are unaware of the consequences of their government's actions. Second, the Saudis know that we know what they did! Somebody in the Federal government has read these 28 pages, someone in the Federal government has read all the other documents that have been covered up so far. And the Saudis know that.

"What would you think the Saudis' position would be, if they knew what they had done, they knew that the United States knew what they had done, and they also observed that the United States had taken a position of either passivity, or actual hostility to letting those facts be known? What would the Saudi government do in that circumstance, which is precisely where they have been, for more than a decade?...

"Al-Qaeda was a creature of Saudi Arabia; the regional groups such as al-Shabaab have been largely creatures of Saudi Arabia; and now, ISIS is the latest creature!...

"So the consequences of our passivity to Saudi Arabia, have been that we have tolerated this succession of institutions, violent, extreme, extremely hurtful to the region of the Middle East, and a threat to the world, as we saw this morning in Paris."

Sen. Graham was absolutely right on Jan. 7.  His words now take on even greater significance, as the entire world is still in shock over the Friday events in Paris, and the prospect that it can happen again.

Putin and Modi Urge, Sever ISIS' Financing Sources

In his press conference with reporters following the G20 meeting in Turkey, Russian President Vladimir Putin reported on the broad discussion at the meeting on the urgent need to cut off ISIS' financing sources.

Speaking to a meeting of BRICS members on the sidelines of the G20, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also called for a "comprehensive strategy to put an end to finance, supplies, and communication channels of the terrorists." ISIS must be "starved" of funds, Modi underscored.

As the Kremlin transcript of the press conference indicates, Putin was very specific:

"I provided examples related to our data on the financing of Islamic State units by natural persons in various countries. The financing comes from 40 countries, as we established, including some G20 members...[Especially after the Paris tragedy, he said,]...we all understand that the means of financing terrorism must be severed."

He emphasized that he had provided satellite photos "to our colleagues, which clearly show the true size of [ISIS'] illegal trade of oil and petroleum products market. Car convoys stretching for dozens of kilometers, going beyond the horizon, when seen from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters."

Reflecting discussions that took place Nov. 14 in Vienna, and ongoing discussions between Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Putin said that one part of the Syrian opposition "considers it possible to begin military actions against ISIL with the assistance of Russian air forces, and we are ready to provide that assistance." If this happens, he explained, Bashar al-Assad's "army on the one hand, and the opposition on the other hand, will fight a common enemy." Russia needs support from the United States, Saudi Arabia and Iran in the fight against terrorism, he added. "It's not the time to debate who is more effective in the fight against ISIL; what we need to do is consolidate our efforts."

Putin referenced the work underway to create a list of the terrorist organizations that are operating in Syria, which task, according to U.S. intelligence sources, has been delegated to Jordan, whose King Abdullah II is close to Putin but also considered a close ally of the United States.



After Paris, Obama Faces Changed Reality and Russia's Crucial Global Role

According to a White House statement issued after Barack Obama's meeting with Russian President Putin on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in Antalya, Turkey, the U.S. President welcomed "efforts by all countries in confronting the Islamic State," particularly noting the importance of Russia's military efforts in Syria targeting ISIS.

That's quite a change from his remarks to ABC News, in an interview just before the Paris attacks (to be aired on Nov. 20), in which he said that Russia intervened in Syria, not to go after ISIS but "to prop up Assad." This is the interview in which Obama also stated that ISIS had been "contained" as a result of U.S. policy, for which he was roasted by several reporters in his press conference this morning in Antalya, Turkey.

A U.S. intelligence source reports that Obama has gotten the message, however, that if ISIS is not defeated, or should it launch a savage attack on the United States on the scale of 9/11—an ISIS video released Monday threatens an attack on Washington, D.C. and other U.S. cities—then his "legacy" goes down the drain. Thus, the Obama-Putin meeting in Antalya reaffirmed what was decided at last Saturday's meeting in Vienna, in terms of U.S.-Russian collaboration moving forward, which also gives Secretary of State John Kerry greater leeway to work with his Russian counterpart Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to work out the details of collaboration.

The new position to which the Administration has been pushed was expressed Nov. 15 on CBS-TV by recent CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell: "I do think the question of whether President Assad needs to go or whether he is part of the solution here, we need to look at it again, Clearly he's part of the problem. But he may also be part of the solution." He suggested an agreement where Assad stays in power for another year and fights ISIS with the Syrian army and support from the U.S.-led coalition and Russia "may give us the best result."

Even so, as displayed in this morning's press conference, a very defensive Obama clung to the argument that his Mideast policies and anti-terror strategy have been a shining example of U.S. "leadership," again asserting that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "is the primary root cause of this crisis." The reporters present had little patience with his droning and overlong explanations of U.S. "successes." Three of them questioned the results of the U.S.-led year-long coalition bombing campaign, asking if Obama hadn't underestimated ISIS' abilities, and pointing to his description of ISIS as a "JV team." Referencing the slaughter in Paris, and given the reality of ISIS' expansion in Syria and Iraq, one reporter challenged, "How is that not underestimating their capabilities? And how is that contained, quite frankly?... Why can't we take out these bastards?"
