You can probably guess my view on this one. Or maybe not, because it’s so anger-filled at the moment.

EXCLUSIVE: Saudi Cash Is Sending Veterans On LUXURY Trips To Washington To Oppose 9/11 Law

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is paying at least one large public relations firm in Washington, D.C. to recruit American military veterans who will agree to visit Capitol Hill to tell members of Congress — in person — that they oppose a new federal law allowing civil lawsuits against state sponsors of terrorism.

Saudi Arabia’s government also appears to be funding luxurious, all-expenses-paid trips to Washington, D.C. for the veterans which include stays at the $500-per-night Trump International Hotel.

The law is the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which creates a way for American citizens to file civil claims against foreign governments for deaths and other damage related to terrorist acts if the foreign governments financed those attacks.

Trump’s World, Money Talks & Saudi Arabia Gets A Free Pass

At a campaign rally in Alabama, Trump professed his affection for the Saudi royalty and their money. “They are buying apartments and properties from me. They spend $40-50 million. I am supposed to hate them? I love them very much.”

Trump Lets Saudis Off His ‘Muslim Ban’

 

By leaving Saudi Arabia and other key terrorism sponsors off his “Muslim ban,” President Trump shows the same cowardice and dishonesty that infected the Bush and Obama administrations, writes Robert Parry.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Sunni-led Muslim states, including Pakistan, nations that did not make Trump’s list.

UN Warns US, West over Support for Saudi ‘War Crimes’ in Yemen

 

 

Obama-White-House-Syrian-Extremists-Aug-7-2013Untitled-1 copy.png

This admission is going to disappear from the White House website next week, when the office passes to Donald Trump. Barack Obama admitted to supporting “extremists” in Syria, which are Al Qaeda, Al Nusrah, Al Sham, ISIS/ISIL.

This fits perfectly in line with his actions vis a vis Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, which were all exposed repeatedly for supporting the terrorists. No sanctions or punitive actions of any sort have been instituted against any of these sponsors of international terrorism. Far from it, the US and its Western allies have sent many billions of dollars of weapons to the perpetrators, not held them accountable. They are partners in crime.

It’s like The Fucking Twilight Zone…

The New York Times tells us that the Saudi Arabian government funds the Taliban, whom the US has supposedly been at war with for 15 years!!!

Saudis Bankroll Taliban, Even as King Officially Supports Afghan Government

Saudi Arabia is critical because of its unique position in the Afghan conflict: It is on both sides.

We are beyond satire, beyond parody. It’s matter of fact, routine now, insanity on the pages of the news as if it’s normal.

How can anyone tolerate a government in bed with those who fund its official enemies, whom the military is actively fighting against?

Anyone?

Is this thing on?
