Just found this on Reddit.
[from the article] While the families of 9/11 victims called for the declassification of evidence that members of the Saudi monarchy helped fund the attacks, a Saudi newspaper turned the table, blaming the United States for the worst terrorist massacre on its soil.
Saudi legal expert Katib Al-Shammari, writing in the London-based Saudi daily Al-Hayat on April 28, charged that the U.S. carried out the 9/11 attacks while placing blame on others, beginning with al-Qaida and the Taliban, then shifting to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and now Saudi Arabia.
“The U.S. created, in public opinion, an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes,” Shammari wrote.
Shammari said the effort to release evidence of purported Saudi involvement in 9/11 is part of standard U.S. policy of using archival documents as leverage against various countries.
“Those who follow American policy see that it is built upon the principle of advance planning and future probabilities. This is because it occasionally presents a certain topic to a country that it does not wish [to bring up] at that time but [that it is] reserving in its archives as an ace to play [at a later date] in order to pressure that country,” he wrote.
He charged that the Americans decided not to remove Saddam in the 1990s because they preferred to keep him as a bargaining chip with Gulf states.
The article was published on the eve of visit President Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia in April. At the time, Congress was debating the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which would allow the families of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to sue the Saudi government for damages.
Echoing the charges of “9/11 truthers,” Shammari said, “Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings.
“Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation – they were not the reason for the collapse.”
He said the U.S. used 9/11 to “launch a new age of global armament” and charged “the “nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy.”
After World War II, he wrote, the U.S. created the Cold War, then, when it ended, “began to see Muslims as their new enemy.”
“This will never end until it accomplishes the goals it has set for itself,” Shammari said of the U.S.
“So why not let these achievements be credited to the American administration, while insurance companies pay for the damages, whether domestic or foreign? This, my dear Arab and Muslim, is the policy of the American archives.”
