A lawsuit by the families of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks has forced out a treasure-trove of documents, proving what Lyndon LaRouche has been saying for years: Behind the 9/11 attacks was the hand of the British Empire, working through allied Saudi factions. In effect, 9/11 was the work of the "BAE Al Yamamah" Anglo-Saudi imperial apparatus, which forms a core of the ongoing British Sykes-Picot controls over the entire Persian Gulf and extended Southwest Asia.
According to a news account in today's New York Times, attorneys representing the 9/11 families have received thousands of pages of previously undisclosed documents, detailing Saudi Royal Family financing of Al Qaeda and Taliban, prior to the 9/11 attacks. Some of those documents, including U.S. Treasury Department reports, were obtained through Freedom of Information Act suits; but other documents, including confidential U.S. and German intelligence reports, were leaked to attorneys for the families, and a court battle has ensued over whether that material can be made public.
On June 22, some of the 9/11 family members met with President Obama, and they claim he promised to go public with a controversial 28-page segment of the Congressional 9/11 investigation report, that the Bush White House classified top secret. As Executive Intelligence Review magazine has reported for years, the sealed 28 pages deal with funds that went from former Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, to two Saudi intelligence officers in California, who used the money to finance two of the 9/11 hijackers.
And this is where the London BAE story comes into play. As has been widely reported, Prince Bandar received at least $2 billion in payoffs for his role in the Al Yamamah arms-for-oil deal, first signed by Margaret Thatcher and the Saudis in 1985. Under the terms of the Al Yamamah barter deal, a $100 billion offshore slush fund for covert intelligence operations was established, that has been linked to the Bandar payoffs and 9/11. While the documents obtained by the lawyers for the 9/11 families primarily deal with Saudi "charitable" funds going to Al Qaeda and Taliban, the real story is the BAE/Al Yamamah slush fund.
As Lyndon LaRouche observed today, the Saudi circles in bed with London in the Al Yamamah program are part of a British imperial scheme, that jeopardizes every nation in the extended Persian Gulf and Southwest Asian region. "Irregardless of their nationality, and whether they know it or not, these Saudi players are the enemies of every Arab and Muslim nation. They are tools of the British Empire, which every self-respecting Arab and Muslim despises."
