Obama has tried to stop Congress from passing legislation put forward by both parties in the Senate aimed at making Saudi Arabia legally responsible for any role they had in the 911 attacks.
It's highly likely that the Saudis help in funding the attacks and 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis.
But not all of the hijackers were Saudis, Obama might argue, so why blame the whole thing on them? They may have gotten funding from good stock investments.
The Saudis threatened Obama and congressional leaders that it will sell billions of dollars in U.S. assets if Congress passes the bill, and we all know how poorly Obama handles threats--he pretends they don't matter because if we acted like they did, the terrorists have won.
In this case, the term 'terrorist' is quite ample.
Obama has tried to stop Congress from passing the bill from the moment Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told lawmakers what they plan to do if passed: they would sell as much as $750 billion in Treasury securities and other American foreign assets on the world market, fearing that these assets could be frozen by our court decision.
The proverbial waste hit the fan as Obama is hemming and hawing over when he plans to declassify 28 pages of sealed documents that likely show a Saudi connection to 911.
Supposedly, the decision should take place within 60 days, according to Sen. Bob Graham (D. FL), but if Benghazi is any indication of how this administration sits on its hands, it may take until Obama is gone.
And that day cannot come soon enough to people who actually see the USA as 'exceptional.'
Both Bush and Obama have refused to unseal the documents fearing they would compromise national security, but the only security it really might compromise is theirs. It certainly seems that enough time has passed rendering the truth as a more plausible tool of national security.
