Sanders referred in particular to Saudi Arabia, telling NBC News’ Chuck Todd:
“I think there’s a lot about Saudi Arabia that we don’t fully understand. And I want to get to the root cause of it. The root of what Saudi Arabia has done.”
Sanders went on to remark that there is “some evidence” that Saudi Arabian money actually funded the 9/11 attacks, noting that money from Saudi Arabia is being used all around the world to promote Wahhabism, one of fundamentalist Islam’s most extreme movements.
“I think that the full extent of the role that Saudi Arabia plays in supporting extremism in this world is something that we should explore,” Sanders told NBC News.
Where Did Trillions of Dollars Go?
Bernie Sanders has also requested for the 28 pages that were redacted from the Joint Congressional Inquiry of 2002 to be declassified. The redaction of the currently classified pages may, according to Sanders, offer insight into connections between Saudi Arabia and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Ever since the report of Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 was released in December 2002, it has been the subject of skepticism. Much of the skepticism of the report is centered on the 28 pages, which were redacted by the Bush administration. As Dig Within writes:
Various US government leaders have since suggested that the missing 28 pages point to Saudi Arabia’s complicity in the 9/11 crimes” (2).
Bernie Sanders urging for more to be done to get to the ‘root cause’ of the 9/11 attacks isn’t the first time the Vermont senator has brought up 9/11 truth.
In a recent speech in Storm Lake, Iowa, Sanders posed the question, why did trillions of dollars go missing the day before 9/11? (3)
The presidential candidate mentioned Donald Rumsfeld and the “mysterious missing trillions”.
Seemingly out of the blue, Rumsfeld had announced the startling information to the American public that $2.3 trillion became missing from the Pentagon one day before 9/11. Rumsfeld blamed the missing trillions on military spending.
Rumsfeld’s announcement was, however, quickly forgotten.
Problems with Department of Defense
Bernie Sanders, however, certainly hasn’t forgotten Rumsfeld’s announcement and was keen to ensure it is fresh in the minds of American citizens.
In Sander’s speech, he spoke of how the Department of Defense is the only agency in the United States which cannot sustain an independent audit.
Sanders added that making the US government more cost-effective and eliminating waste and fraud is on the top of his priorities’ list.
As Top Secret Writers wrote in 2014, the many disrespectful conspiracies surrounding 9/11 need to stop (4).
And as the Democratic candidate for the 2016 presidential elections rightly brings up, America needs to expose the truth about the 9/11 attacks.
