Sleeping with the enemy: Did Saudi King Salman finance ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Taliban?

 

As the beheading of Saudi Arabian nationals continue, some are looking closer into King Salman and the Saudi Royal family’s role in the beheading of countless civilians at the hands of ISIS. Only days after President Obama met with the new Saudi King to discuss shared interests, a video surfaced of the Islamic State’s newest victim, Jordanian Lt. Muath Al-Kaseasbeh.

ISIS burned Al-Kaseasbeh alive in a cage, and on Tuesday, the video was released. It is just one of many disturbing recordings which show the savagery of ISIS. While President Obama discussed human rights with new Saudi King Salman, the American public discussed oil prices in the wake of Saudi leadership change. However, the real story is King Salman’s direct support of 9/11 hijackers, and the overlooked theme of Saudi oil turned into blood money.

In the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks, U.S. forces struck targets in Afghanistan and launched a global manhunt for Saudi-born Osama Bin Laden. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi Arabian, but all of the public’s attention focused on Afghanistan.

Two of the hijackers chosen by Bin Laden after fighting alongside him in Bosnia, Khalid Al-Mihdhar and Nawaf Al-Hazmi were the focus of a lawsuit filed by families of 9/11 victims, who claim Saudi national Omar al-Bayoumi financially supported the two men as they planned the attacks. The lawsuit claims to have evidence that al-Bayoumi was a Saudi intelligence agent, directly supporting the terrorists.
