Longtime Trump loyalist Roger Stone, a friend for three decades, is no fan of President Donald Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia this weekend.
Stone wrote on Twitter Saturday morning that when he saw Saudi Arabia King Salman placing a gold medallion around the neck of President Trump, it made him want to “puke” because instead of meeting with the Saudis, the president should be demanding that Saudi Arabia “pay for the attack on America on 9/11 which they financed.”
In Stone’s opinion, the blame for the trip lays at the feet of Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is considered to be a liberal Democrat and a globalist by many. Stone used the hashtag #JaredsIdea for emphasis:
By all accounts, Roger Stone is right about the Saudi government’s involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks that brought down the Twin Towers in New York and tragically killed over 3,000 Americans and led to wars that have cost American taxpayers trillions of dollars and the death of thousands of our brave soldiers.
Of the 19 hijackers in the September 11, 2001 attacks, 15 were citizens of Saudi Arabia and as Paul Sperry of the New York Post reported, there is “incontrovertible evidence” that the terrorists received support from the government of Saudi Arabia, according to a CIA memo from 2002:
Now we know why the missing 28 pages on 9/11 were kept under lock and key for 15 years: They show the hijackers got help across America from Saudi diplomats and spies in the run-up to the attacks. Because of the coverup, a Saudi terror support network may still be in place inside the United States.
A CIA memorandum dated July 2, 2002, stated unequivocally that the connections found between the hijackers, the Saudi embassy in Washington and Saudi consulate in Los Angeles are “incontrovertible evidence that there is support for these terrorists within the Saudi government.”
“Numerous” FBI files also fingered two Saudi government employees who assisted the 9/11 hijackers as “Saudi intelligence officers,” the newly declassified documents reveal.
Though much is still redacted, they also show the Saudi government’s ties to the hijackers and other al Qaeda suspects were so extensive that the FBI’s Washington field office created a special squad to investigate the Saudi angle.
In February of 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump blamed Saudi Arabia for the 9/11 attacks twice in one day. One of the great mysteries is why hasn’t Saudi Arabia been held accountable. It doesn’t look like that will happen any time soon.
