an attorney representing families and survivors of the 9/11 attack stated Khashoggi may have been murdered because of what he knew about 9/11.

 

Saudi murders in Pensacola revive 9/11′s unanswered questions

James Kreindler said Khashoggi, who was killed at the Saudi embassy in Istanbul in 2018, had met with an investigator with the 9/11 plaintiffs in 2017 and “knew a lot about the Saudi government’s involvement” in the terror attacks.

“My belief,” Kreindler added, “is that Khashoggi was killed not because he was a dissident, there are lots of dissidents, but because he was holding this ax over the Saudis’ heads.”

Kreindler is apparently the attorney suing Saudi Arabia for the victim’s families.

Problems:

  1. Comments are turned off. No additional info allowed.
  2. Alleged 9/11 hijackers lived and trained at a Florida military base including the PENSACOLA AIR BASE! USA Today either doesn’t know this or isn’t allowed to make the connection:

Mohamed Atta at Maxwell Air Force Base

overviewAccording to a flurry of stories between Sept 15 and 17 (2001) in the Washington Post, Newsweek, and Knight Ridder newspapers, as many as six of the terrorists, including ringleader Mohammed Atta, received training at U.S. military facilities.

“U.S. military sources have given the FBI information that suggests five of the alleged hijackers of the planes used in Tuesday’s terror attacks received training at secure U.S. military installations in the 1990’s,” Newsweek reported. Newsweek also reported that three of the hijackers received training at the Pensacola Naval Station in Florida.

…The Senator had received no reply to his request. “Speaking for Senator Nelson,” concluded the spokesman, “we still do not know if three of the terrorists trained at one time in Pensacola or not.”

The FBI took a powder: Things you never knew about 9/11

 

Newsweek, September 14, 2001:

ALLEGED HIJACKERS MAY HAVE TRAINED AT U.S. BASES

Three of the alleged hijackers listed their address on drivers licenses and car registrations as the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla.-known as the “Cradle of U.S. Navy Aviation,” according to a high-ranking U.S. Navy source.

Another of the alleged hijackers may have been trained in strategy and tactics at the Air War College in Montgomery, Ala., said another high-ranking Pentagon official. The fifth man may have received language instruction at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Tex. Both were former Saudi Air Force pilots who had come to the United States, according to the Pentagon source.

Reailty in a corporate newpaper?

Barack Obama’s return just reminds us how he fueled the distrust that led to Donald Trump

Who cares if Obama belatedly cheers for transparency and accountability? He should admit that he made the government more dangerous at home and abroad.

Article neglects to mention how much was STOLEN in these currency rigging schemes. Instead USA Today dangles the amount of the fines like a magician distracting the audience.

USA Today finds Nazis among Kiev’s volunteer brigade

Let’s remember what isn’t being reported at corporate media:

The new deputy prime minister, Oleksandr Sych, is from Svoboda; National Security Secretary Andriy Parubiy is a co-founder of the neo-Nazi Social-National Party, Svoboda’s earlier incarnation; the deputy secretary for National Security is Dmytro Yarosh, the head of Right Sector. Chief prosecutor Oleh Makhnitsky is another Svoboda member, as are the ministers for Agriculture and Ecology (Channel 4, 3/5/14). In short, if the prospect of fascists taking power again in Europe worries you, you should be very worried about Ukraine.

The named mass-murdering Nazi war criminals have killed at least 6000 of their countrymen, with the full support of the US and its partners.
