Washington, D.C. – In response to the U.S. Senate’s unanimous vote to allow 9/11 victims’ families to sue Saudi Arabia in federal court, a report published in the London-based Al-Hayat daily, by Saudi legal expert Katib al-Shammari, claims that the U.S. masterminded the terror attacks as a means of creating a nebulous “enemy” in order garner public support for a global war on terror.

The report by al-Shammari, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), claims that long-standing American policy is “built upon the principle of advance planning and future probabilities,” which the U.S. has now turned toward the Saudi regime after being successfully employed against first the Taliban and al-Qaeda, then Saddam Hussein and his secular Baathist controlled Iraq.

Al-Shammari claims the recent U.S. threats to “expose” documents implicating the Saudi government are simply the continuation of a U.S. policy, which he refers to as “victory by means of archive.” He highlights that during the initial invasion of Iraq, under George H.W. Bush, Saddam Hussein was left alive and in power to be used as “a bargaining chip,” but upon deciding that he was “no longer an ace up their sleeve” Washington moved to topple his government and install a U.S.-backed ruling party.


The terrorist attacks of 9/11 are now the “ace up the sleeve” of the U.S. government, according to al-Shammari.

“September 11 is one of winning cards in the American archives, because all the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the U.S. 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. But the U.S. still spreads blame in all directions. [This policy] can be dubbed ‘victory by means of archives.”

The impetus behind the attacks, writes al-Shammari, was to create “an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes” and that would provide justification for any “dirty operation” in any nation.

According to al-Shammari’s report in Al-Hayat:

“On September 11, the U.S. attained several victories at the same time, that [even] the hawks [who were at that time] in the White House could not have imagined. Some of them can be enumerated as follows:

1. The U.S. created, in public opinion, an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes, and also became the sole motivation for any dirty operation that American politicians and military figures desire to carry out in any country. [The] terrorism [label] was applied to Muslims, and specifically to Saudi Arabia.

2. Utilizing this incident [9/11], the U.S. launched a new age of global armament. Everyone wanted to acquire all kinds of weapons to defend themselves and at the same time battle the obscure enemy, terrorism – [even though] up to this very moment we do not know the essence of this terrorism of which the U.S. speaks, except [to say that] that it is Islamic…

3. The U.S. made the American people choose from two bad options: either live peacefully [but] remain exposed to the danger of death [by terrorism] at any moment, or starve in safety, because [the country’s budget will be spent on sending] the Marines even as far as Mars to defend you.”

The Saudi press has been in a frenzy since the unanimous Senate vote to allow for the House of Saud to be held liable in U.S. federal court for the 9/11 attacks, with the U.S. being accused of being in alliance with Iran – to press warnings that passage of the “Satanic” bill would “open the gates of hell,” as reported by Breitbart.

Al-Shammari makes extremely clear that he views the problem as the U.S. imperial machine itself, stating, “the nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy.”

“The nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy… [For example,] after a period during which it did not fight anyone [i.e. following World War II], the U.S. created a new kind of war – the Cold War… Then, when the Soviet era ended, after we Muslims helped the religions and fought Communism on their [the Americans’] behalf, they began to see Muslims as their new enemy! The U.S. saw a need for creating a new enemy – and planned, organized, and carried this out [i.e. blamed Muslims for terrorism]. This will never end until it [the U.S.] accomplishes the goals it has set for itself.”

While it seems fighting Islamic terrorism is great for increasing fear and state propaganda meant to elicit compliant civilian populations that passively accept loss of liberty for promises of greater security, the military-industrial complex needs a bigger enemy to justify their $600 billion dollar-a-year budgets, thus beginning the transition to labeling Russia/China as “aggressive Russia/China,” in an effort to begin to pivot away from one boogeyman to other, more profitable, ones.

    Now imagine if they were thrown out of a 110 storey building. Would that be justice?

  • america-a terrorist country

    the saudi was quite right on two points: that america needs an enemy. and, they america created the enemy “”terror” so vague as an excuse to invade countries, promote ”so called” regime change, and expand the murderous drone program. america is a terrorist country.

    A full year later and you remain as right now as you were right then. The slithery creepoids you duly noted along with the rest of the cohort will lurk in the shadows until they all die off, after which none of them will be available to be held accountable. (Remember JFK) It is truly a crappy deal, but karma’s a bitch; it will all come out in the wash some day, some way. Meanwhile, Peace and Love Eternally back at ya’.

      Hello Dear waqaa,
      “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. ” – Dr. Martin Luther King. I think you are right about it all coming out in the wash some day. I know that the Source Creator is the most powerful energetic frequency as the creative force of the billions of billions of Galaxies and All That Is but in such space and time as We Are Now, this concept will remain unfathomable to the human brain (although meditation can give us glimpses of the infinite). The single most powerful energy source I have come to know is Unconditional Love. So I aspire to create this as I follow the path I create for myself. There is always so much more to learn! I do tend to think that in lieu of accountability, however, those who have completely lost their ability to Love will be energetically reabsorbed and recreated into something else that will hold fast to Love … perhaps somewhere else far far away. My ‘Dream Come True’ is to see the return of healthy natural ecosystems on every nanometer of this beautiful blue planet.
      Peace and Love Eternally ♥ Jilly

    Then they can go to the least friendly of them. Hopefully the ones with the biggest and nastiest probes…

    My thoughts on the root of the problem are below. Please forgive the long post but I felt it especially relevant to this topic and this thread. Enjoy.

    Who Really Runs The Show?

    The ones who you think lead you, are mere puppets in these games.

    The ones who really lead you, you may never even know their names.

    But they make the decisions about how we all go forth.

    Society’s direction simply set to send their profits north.

    Who then are these cretins, who keep driving us to war,

    Who’ve made the living Earth herself into their bargain basement store?

    Well, back in school they tortured you, and gave your sister strife.

    Now they run the corporate world, your country, and your life.

    You give a prick like this an inch, he’ll take the fucking mile.

    And in pursuit of ever more, there’s nothing that he’ll not defile.

    These cunning little psychopaths, and now we know that’s what they are.

    Are organized, and pillaging, and plundering, both near and far.

    It’s you and I that put them there, it’s us that screwed the pooch.

    It’s us who blindly bought their lies and smoked their stinking corporate hooch.

    And now it’s coming round to bite, it’s eying up your arse.

    For in their greed, their governance has descended into farce.

    Their ever growing cockiness now drives their crimes into plain sight.

    Their old boys clubs of thieves and thugs, goose-stepping you towards the Right.

    You didn’t feel the slide at first, you had your earphones on.

    Anesthetized by all their lies, they stole your life while you were gone.

    Your fears and your priorities, now engineered by them,

    To cap your aspirations and to keep your dreams within a hem.

    For when you’re told just what to think, you come to think within a box.

    You lose the tools to apprehend the signals that portend the shocks.

    And that’s just how they want it, as they bleed your planet dry.

    And when it’s dead they’ll bunker down, while leaving you to burn and die.

    See, they don’t care if all of this, is rendered into ash.

    Only Power moves these minds, that and piles of filthy cash.
