Media Release Thursday, 5 May 2016
To stop a major terrorist attack in Britain: Re-open the SFO’s al-Yamamah investigation!In light of the political furore that has erupted in the USA over the Bush and Obama administrations’ cover-up of Saudi Arabia’s role in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack
, the British government must end its parallel cover-up of how the British-Saudi al-Yamamah arms deal generated funds for the 9/11 attackers.
In particular, the House of Commons committees now examining British arms trade with Saudi Arabia must pursue these revelations regarding 9/11
. Otherwise the continuing cover-up will ensure that a near-term mass terrorist attack in Britain itself is a certainty, an attack which MI5 and MI6 chiefs have repeatedly warned is coming.
...The real story behind 9/11
The 14-year suppression of 28 pages of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11, which detail the financing of that attack, started to unravel on 10 April when the CBS TV prime time 60 Minutes program reported on the 28 pages, ahead of Barack Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia and the UK the week of 28 April. A number of U.S. Congressmen, including former Senator Bob Graham, who chaired the 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry and authored its report, including the 28 pages, together with families of the 9/11 victims and the LaRouche movement in the United States, have long campaigned to have the 28 pages declassified.
Now, following the 60 Minutes broadcast, the issue has exploded into a global media storm.To end the cover-up—and thus to forestall future attacks—the 28 pages must be declassified
, as every top U.S. Congressional leader from House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid
, to Speaker of the House (Republican) Paul Ryan
and House Intelligence Committee Chairman (Republican) Devin Nunes has now demanded, as did the Editorial Board of the New York Times in a signed editorial on 22 April. In parallel, the British Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigation of al-Yamamah, which then-PM Tony Blair shut down in 2006, must be re-opened
. What is known about both the 28 pages and al-Yamamah implicates high levels of the British Establishment not only in the cover-up, but in the actual 9/11 attack, and in ongoing international terrorism.The al-Yamamah oil-for-arms deal is the UK’s biggest-ever arms contract
, negotiated in 1985 between then-PM Margaret Thatcher and Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the long-time Saudi ambassador to the USA and one of the Saudi Royals identified in the suppressed 28 pages. Under the deal, British defence contractor BAE Systems supplied fighter jets and infrastructure to the Saudi Air Force in exchange for 600,000 barrels of oil per day—one full oil tanker—for every day of the life of the contract, which as of 2005 had netted BAE Systems £43 billion. But beyond that £43 billion, al-Yamamah generated a secret US$100 billion-plus off-the-books slush fund, which was used to finance coups d’état, assassinations, and terrorism, including the creation of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, as Prince Bandar’s biographer recorded.
...Beyond the 28 pages
, Senator Graham has also called for the declassification of hundreds of thousands of additional pages produced by his Joint Inquiry and the subsequent 9/11 Commission. Merely one such document, the 47-page “Document 17” of the 9/11 Commission, dated 6 June 2003 and only recently declassified
, made clear that that Commission and Senator Graham’s Joint Inquiry had discovered strong links between 21 officials of the Saudi government and some of the 9/11 hijackers, links which were never fully pursued because of the cover-up
