Report: Saudis vow to sell US assets if Congress decides Governor was involved in ninth/11

Saudi Arabia has reportedly told the Obama administration and congressional leaders that it'll sell billions of dollars in U. S. financial assets if Congress passes a bill to create the Saudi government legally responsible for any role in the nine/eleven attacks.

The administration has tried to stop Congress from passing the legislation, a bipartisan Senate bill, since Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir latest mo told WA lawmakers his country’s position, according to The New York Times.

Al-Juberi purportedly informed the lawmakers during a ride to WA that Saudi Arabia would be forced to sell as much as $750 billion in Treasury securities and other American financial assets on the world market, fearing the legislation could become law and U. S. courts would then freeze the assets.

The revelations about the Saudis’ ultimatum arrive several days after reports that President Obama will soon determine whether to declassify twenty-eight pages of sealed documents suspected of showing a Saudi connection to the deadly nine/eleven terror attacks.

Former FL Democratic Sen. Bob Graham told Fox News on Tuesday that the White House told him a decision on whether to declassify the documents would be made within sixty days.

Graham helped lead a two thousand two congressional inquiry into the attacks.

The Bush and Obama administrations have refused to unseal the documents, arguing their release would jeopardize national security.

Critics claim the reluctance is a calculated move to cover Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the al Qaeda terror attack that killed nearly 3.000 people on U. S. soil on Sept. eleven, 2001.

Obama had arrive below renewed pressure to release the documents ahead of a scheduled ride following week to Saudi Arabia for a summit of Persian Gulf leaders.

Economists are purportedly doubtful about the Saudis making excellent on their vow to sell the assets, considering such a move would be challenging to perform and could severely damage that country’s economy, which depends on the U. S. dollar.

The separate nine/eleven Commission essentially found number proof that the Saudi Arabia government supported the attacks.

However, the commission’s narrowly worded finding about having “no proof that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi executive individually funded the organization” has skeptic suggesting that lesser executive government operatives or were involved.
