Of course Ill do that, but would you please tell me what aspect of this news-report and commentary, or of the prior ones, causes you not to like it? I try to provide, and via links to document with reliable sources, important events that arent generally noted in U.S. media such as yours. I therefore would like to know why this information isnt interesting to you?

Trumps Continuing Refusal to Prosecute the 9/11 Funders

Eric Zuesse

By now, it has been well documented that, as I documented on January 29th, “Al Qaeda Funded by Royal Sauds, U.S. Govt. Documents . And, yet, despite the massive documentation which the U.S. Government itself possesses regarding this (and which has been suppressed by the U.S. newsmedia but is linked-to in that article so that the public can get to see it), both President Barack Obama and now President Donald Trump were and are arrantly ignoring it, and are instead continuing to do the bidding of the royal Sauds, who individually donated (according to the court-testimony in 2014 by Osama bin Ladens former bookkeeper and financial bagman prior to 9/11) over a million dollars in cash each, to Al Qaeda, leading up to 9/11; and, furthermore, out of these donations, the 9/11 terrorists received their salaries, and without the money of the of the Saudi, you will have nothing of Al Qaeda: none of the training, none of the international transportation, none of the weapons, nothing at all. Thats what he said, but how much was this incredibly important testimony (in a U.S. court-case) publicized in the U.S. press? And why wasnt it? Will it now be?

The latest on this, is on September 9th this year, when the New York Times headlined “Trumps Bid to End Saudi-Qatar Stalemate Ends in Recriminations , and reported that though President Trump was trying to remain neutral in the Saudi embargo against Qatar, he seems to be siding with the Sauds, and no mention was made in that article, regarding the 9/11 attacks, which were almost entirely financed and perpetrated by Saudis mainly funded by the royal Saud family, but using jihadists from the network of the Saudi aristocrat Osama bin Ladens Al Qaeda.

For example, as I documented on 20 July 2016, headlining “9/11: Bushs Guilt, And The ’28 Pages :

What these 29 long-suppressed pages revealed was well summarized by one succinct reader who wrote: The Inquiry discloses that there is a very direct chain of evidence about financing and logistics [that] goes from the Saudi Royal family (Amb. Bandar’s wife and Bandar’s checking account) and Saudi consulate employees (al Thumiari) to the agent handlers (Basnan and al Bayoumi) to some of the 9/11 hijackers (Khalid al-Mihdhar, Nawaf al-Hazmi). In other words: Prince Bandar bin-Sultan al-Saud, known in Washington as Bandar Bush (for his closeness to the Bush family), and who served at that time as Saudi Arabias Ambassador to the United States, paid tens of thousands of dollars to Saudi Arabias handlers who were directing two of the hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi. Also, one of Bandars subordinates at the Embassy, named al-Thumiari, was likewise paying the person who was paying and managing those two jihadists.

The report said: FBI files suggest that al-Bayoumi provided substantial assistance to hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi after they arrived in San Diego in February 2000. According to an October 14, 2002 FBI document, al-Bayoumi has extensive ties to the Saudi Government. According to the FBI, al-Bayoumi was in frequent contact with the Emir at the Ministry of Defense, responsible for air traffic control. Al-Bayoumi was receiving money from the Saudi Ministry of Defense. Al-Bayoumi was known to have access to large amounts of money from Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that he did not appear to hold a job. Al-Bayoumis pay increased during the time that al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar were in the United States.

Also, an FBI agent testified on 9 October 2002 regarding al-Bayoumi, and said Bayoumi: acted like a Saudi intelligence officer, in my opinion. And if he was involved with the hijackers, which it looks like he was, if he signed leases, if he provided some sort of financing then I would say that theres a clear possibility that there might be a connection between Saudi intelligence and UBL [Usama bin Laden].

Moreover: The FBI has now confirmed that only Osama Bassnans wife received money directly from Prince Bandars wife, but that al-Bayoumis wife attempted to deposit three of the checks from Prince Bandars wife, which were payable to Bassnans wife, into her own accounts. Bassnan was a very close associate of Omar al-Bayoumis and was in telephone contact with al-Bayoumi several times a day.

Furthermore: Bassnans wife received a monthly stipend from Princess Haifa.

And: On at least one occasion, Bassnan received a check directly from Prince Bandars account. According to the FBI, on May 14, 1998, Bassnan cashed a check from Bandar in the amount of $15,000. Bassnans wife also received at least one check directly from Bandar for $10,000. FBI Executive Assistant Director DAmuro commented on this financing: I believe that we do have money going from Bandars wife, $2,000 a month up to about $64,000.

Also: On March 28, 2002, U.S. and coalition forces retrieved the telephone book of Abu Zubayda, whom the U.S. Government has identified as a senior al-Qaida operational coordinator. According to an FBI document, a review of toll records has linked [to] ASPCOL Corporation in Aspen, Colorado. ASPCOL is the umbrella corporation that manages the affairs of the Colorado residence of Prince Bandar, the Saudi Ambassador. The U.S. Government also located another Virginia number at an Usama bin Laden safehouse in Pakistan [where a person was] interviewed by the FBI in June 2002. He could not explain why his number ended up at a safehouse in Pakistan, but stated that he regularly provides services to a couple who are personal assistants to Prince Bandar.

This has to be seen in the context of George W. Bushs very close and longstanding personal friendship with Prince Bandar, and also in the context of Bandars career.

Bandar has long been involved, both officially and unofficially, in the intelligence operations of the Saud family (which own Saudi Arabia). During October 2005 through January 2015, he served as secretary general of Saudi Arabias National Security Council, and he also was director general of the Saudi Intelligence Agency from 2012 to 2014. Furthermore the just-released report asserts:

The FBI also received reports from individuals in the Muslim community alleging that Bassnan might be a Saudi intelligence agent. According to a CIA memo, Basnan reportedly received funding and possibly a fake passport from Saudi Government officials. He and his wife have received financial support from the Saudi Ambassador to the United States and his wife. A CIA report also indicates that Bassnan traveled to Houston in 2002 and that during that trip a member of the Saudi royal family provided Bassnan with a significant amount of cash. FBI information indicates that Bassnan is an extremist and a supporter of Usama bin Laden.

Regarding Shaykh al-Thumairy, he was an accredited diplomat at the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles and one of the imams at the King Fahd Mosque built in 1998 from funding provided by Saudi Arabias Crown Prince Abdulaziz. The mosque is widely recognized for its anti-Western views.

The 29 pages also include lots more, but those facts give at least some solid indications of the links that Prince Bandar had to 9/11.

Thus, in addition to the detailed testimony of the former bagman, which I mentioned at the start, there was the FBIs investigation that was presented in the redacted 28 pages and that finally was made public 14 years after the redacted and quiet publication on Friday night 15 July 2016, of those crucial pages from the 2002 Congressional Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11. Furthermore, Hillary Clintons leaked communications included Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide, and, more recently, We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region. (But, of course, President Trump is focusing only against Qatars royals, not against Saudi Arabias.)

Though the U.S. Government has all this information connecting the 9/11 attacks to the royal Sauds as the chief financial backers of the operation, the U.S. Government has fined Irans Government $10.5 billion for it, on the flimsiest imaginable basis.

On June 7th, I took up the evidence that Israels Government was, somehow, behind the 9/11 attacks, and found that everything thats been presented along those lines is based upon ignoring the actual evidence (summarized above), and upon ignoring the reason why the FBI finally gave up on its investigations into Israels possibly having been behind 9/11: they gave up on the hypothesis because of such things as that the timelines presented by the proponents of that hypothesis are false. For example, regarding the dancing Israelis, they definitely started their dancing, and their filming of the attacks against the World Trade Towers, after the first plane had hit, not before (as is alleged by the proponents of that hypothesis). (The reader-comments to my article were in disbelief, but thats what the FBIs investigation of the matter had concluded, and I linked to that record, but those commenters simply continued to ignore it.)

Moreover, the Sauds have long been allied with Israels Government to serve them as their agents to propagandize in the United States for U.S. Government policies that the Sauds want but know they cant as effectively as the Israelis (and U.S. supporters of Israel) propagandize directly to the U.S. public.

Iran and Israel arent the only two nations that are accused, on ridiculous grounds, as having financed and helped to plan the 9/11 attacks; theres now also Qatar, which the Sauds recently decided needs a regime-change. After the Saud family (and their aristocratic and royal friends in UAE and some other Arab nations) started their blockade against Qatar, on June 23 of this year, the far-right Rupert Murdochs Sky News headlined in July their quickly-thrown-together 40-minute documentary Road to Manhattan , blaming Qatar for the 9/11 attacks, on the basis that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had lived several years in Qatar and had friends among Qatars royal family, who were the major funders of the Muslim Brotherhood, all of which is true, but hardly the caliber or quantity of relevant information that implicates the Sauds its instead a few strands of guilt-by-association, plus the almost universal support that Islamists, including terrorist groups, have had from fundamentalist Sunnis, including from all of the royal families who run the Arab Gulf nations. Deflecting the blame for 9/11, away from themselves would be a natural tactic for the royal Sauds to employ. And certainly, Sunni fundamentalists in all countries (not only in Arabia) have been more supportive of the various jihadist groups that target the U.S. and EurAsia than should be the case. But theres a big difference between that, and being the main country whose leaders were funding providing the bulk of the funds that made possible the 9/11 attacks.

Though the U.S. Government is determined to blame Iran for 9/11, and many in the public blame Israel for 9/11, and the royal Sauds blame the royals in Qatar for the 9/11 attacks, the evidence that has long been in possession of the FBI and of other U.S. federal offices, proves that at least some of the royal Sauds were financing the 9/11 attacks, and that Prince Bandar and his wife were particularly involved in it, and that George W. Bush had instructed Condoleezza Rice to block any top intelligence professional from gaining access privately to tell him anything actionable about the planned attacks until after they would already have occurred so that there was a determination by him to retain plausible deniability regarding any involvement by himself in the matter.

Furthermore, there is a very extensive connection between Prince Bandar and Zbigniew Brzezinsky in their jointly having created in 1979 the group that soon thereafter came to be called Al Qaeda; and also between Soros Capital and members of Saudi Arabias bin Laden family. It didnt start with 9/11. And, though most people think that the U.S. aristocracy wag the Saudi royal tail, the evidence as I see it is the exact opposite: that the royal Sauds have been wagging the U.S. tail. And things dont seem to have changed with the recent change in the occupancy of the White House: Under Trump, the U.S seems to be even more subservient to the royal Sauds than before.

And, according to, which is the website that reports ongoing efforts by the U.S. Government to squash efforts by the 9/11 victim-families to pursue legal charges against the royal Sauds and others involved in the conspiracy to perpetrate 9/11, this U.S. Governmental obstructionism continues right up till now, with recent reports by that site being published both in August 2017 and in September 2017.

Ever since 9/11, there has been permanent war (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, etc.), massive increases in federal spending to purchase weapons from Lockheed Martin and other U.S. weapons-makers, and a general transformation of the U.S. Government toward becoming an American police-state, which is very useful to the elite who are actually in control.

A phenomenally good investigative article was issued on 22 January 2015, by the great Nafeez Ahmed, about the role that Silicon Valley billionaires have been and are playing in this, titled How the CIA Made Google . One cant correctly understand any international news without knowing what Ahmed disclosed there. It importantly fills in some of the many areas that have been previously in the dark about this entire decades-long emerging American police-state operation.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
