CENTER ASSESSES ‘28 PAGES’ INSIGHTS INTO SAUDI DOUBLE-GAME AMIDST REVELATIONS OF CLINTON ROLE IN EXACERBATING ITS THREAT HERE
Washington, D.C.: Investigative reporter Paul Sperry revealed yesterday at CounterJihad.com the extent to which Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State reversed many of the measures put into place after 9/11 to protect the United States from additional Saudi jihadist attacks.
The necessity for such measures was underscored by the contents of the so-called “28 Pages,” a portion of the original congressional investigation conducted in the wake of the death and destruction caused by 15 Saudi nationals and four other Islamic supremacists on September 11, 2001. These pages had, until recently, been withheld from the American people and only were released last month in a redacted form.
The Center for Security Policy released today a white paper entitled “What’s in the 28 Pages?” providing valuable background information about this report and key highlights of its findings and offering recommendations as to a variety of changes with respect to U.S. policy towards Saudi Arabia and other enablers of and participants in the Global Jihad Movement.
Upon releasing this report, Center President Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. observed:
At a moment when Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy judgment and experience are properly the subject of intense scrutiny and debate, her role in undoing sensible measures aimed at protecting this country and its people from further Saudi treachery must be carefully considered. Such an analysis must, in turn, be informed by the insights about a specific and devastating example of such treachery: the 9/11 jihadist attacks on the United States.
The Center’s newest white paper illuminates the 28 Pages’ findings about the extent to which Saudi officials – including long-time ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar – were implicated along with various other nationals of their country, including of course, fifteen out of nineteen of the hijackers. The unmistakable implication is that the status Saudi Arabia enjoyed as a trusted ally prior to September 11, 2001 contributed to the execution of this murderous act of jihad. Similarly, it was eminently sensible after those attacks occurred to reduce dramatically Saudi student visas and to monitor more closely those Saudis coming to and inside the United States.
In light of what’s in the 28 Pages, America needs urgently to revisit decisions taken on Hillary Clinton’s watch that undid such sensible measures – and vigorously question those responsible.
