OBAMA'S SAUDI CONNECTION THE OBAMA/ALQAEDA ALLIANCE Create a Select Committee to Investigate Benghazi/Declassify the 28-page Chapter of the Joint Congressional Inquiry on the Saudi Involvement in 9/11Researched and compiled by This fact sheet was last updated May 4, 2013. William Wertz
While claiming credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden (OBL), President Barack Obama was forging an alliance with al-Qaeda, first, to overthrow the government of Libya, and now, the government of Syria. This reckless and lawless policy of allying with the perpetrators of 9/11/2001, and now, 9/11/2012, to conduct war without the consent of Congress, in violation of the U.S. Constitution, runs the immediate danger of leading to world war, which can only mean thermonuclear war. Explosive new information suggests that in doing this Obama has worked with the government of Saudi Arabia, the same government which has been implicated in the original 9/11/2001 and whose role in both terrorist attacks on the United States has been covered up by both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. This is the elephant in the room, which explains why the Obama Administration has lied and attempted to cover up the true facts about Benghazi. The policy of allying with al-Qaeda, and covering up that alliance and its consequences, is, indeed an impeachable offense. The President of the United States as well as all members of the Senate and the Congress swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. The President has violated that oath. The question is whether members of Congress will have the courage to fight for the truth and for justice
on behalf of the victims of this criminal policy and will uphold their own oath of office. While certain facts have come out, the basic issue of Obamas alliance with alQaeda has not been fully addressed. On Monday, Feb. 18, a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the Algerian government declared the former emir of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), Abdel Hakim Belhadj, persona non grata in Algeria because of his terrorist connections. What does the Algerian government know that the U.S. Congress has thus far failed to publicly question? Why does Belhadj continue to be protected? Is it because he is an ally of the Obama administration and some of his allies in the Republican party in the attempt to overthrow Syrias Assad? According to Al-Hayat, January 2, 2012, Belhadj was in Benghazi in April 2011, where he helped organize the February 17 Brigade, which was hired by the State Department to guard the Benghazi mission. The February 17 Brigade was the conduit through which the Libyan Defense Ministry made payments to Ansar al-Sharia before Sept. 11, 2012 and after a short interruption it has resumed that role. Thus, the group defending the U.S. mission was the paymaster of the group attacking the mission and continues to be so. According to the New York Times, in September 2011 Belhadj was appointed as a member of the Supreme Security Committee (SSC). An SSC officer took photos of the mission the morning of the attack and the SSC failed to post an official vehicle outside the mission 24/7 as requested. According to Mathieu Pellerin, director at the Centre of Strategic Intelligence on the African Continent (CISCA) based in Paris, Belhadj is the current head of domestic security in Libya. During the overthrow of Qaddafi arms shipments from Qatar and the UAE approved by Obama, which were in violation of the UN arms embargo, went directly to Belhadj, bypassing the Transitional National Council. Obama had originally approached Saudi Arabia to provide the weapons. Moreover, an e-mail dated February 16, 2013 from Sidney Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton, which was hacked by someone calling himself Guccifer and then later published by Russia Today, reveals that according to French Intelligence the attack on Benghazi was carried out by al-Qaeda and funded by wealthy Sunni Islamists from Saudi Arabia. This fact is reportedly known by both Algerian and Libyan intelligence agencies. Moreover, according to a second hacked Blumenthal memo dated September 12, 2012, Mohammed Yussef el Magariaf, the President of Libya, believed at the time that the Benghazi terror attack was part of a covert campaign being led by Abdelhakim Belhadj to link him to the CIA.
Now more than ever two steps are required: 1) the creation of a select committee to investigate Benghazi as proposed by Rep. Frank Wolf; and 2) the declassification of the 28 page chapter of the report of the Joint Congressional Inquiry on Saudi Arabias involvement in 9/11/2001 as called for by Rep. Walter Jones. On April 16, 2013, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit reinstated the suit brought by the families of the victims of 9/11 against 12 individuals including nine Saudi Charity officials. In light of the cover-up of the original 9/11 and the cover-up of Benghazi, the recent Boston Marathon bombing, plus the fact that the U.S. is being drawn into a war in Syria in support of Saudi-backed al-Qaeda forces, a 9/11 Review Commission should also be immediately activated as provided in the Defense Authorization continuing resolution signed into law on March 26, 2013. This updated fact sheet presents the currently available evidence from the public domain: The Case of Libya In the case of Libya, the evidence of Obamas alliance with al-Qaeda is overwhelming. Under the guise of the Blair doctrine of humanitarian interventionism or the right to protect, President Obama ordered American military forces to create a no-fly zone, provide close air cover for and approved the provision of weapons to the al-Qaeda affiliated LIFG to overthrow Muammar Qaddafi. He did this in violation of the U.S. Constitution and the War Powers Resolution. He also clearly violated the UN arms embargo by organizing the provision of weapons to the opposition. The opposition in Libya was dominated by the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), which was created in the 1990s by Abdel Hakim Belhadj, who had fought with al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan, from 1988 to 1992. (On Feb. 15, 2011, the LIFG, perhaps attempting to gain favor from Barack Obama, changed its name to the Libyan Islamic Movement for Change.) After Kabul fell in 1992, Belhadj moved to Sudan with Osama bin Laden. In 1995, British MI6 approached the LIFG, many of whose leading members resided in the U.K., to carry out a coup against Qaddafi. After the coup and four assassination attempts against Qaddafi failed, many members of the LIFG were jailed in the Abu Selim prison in Tripoli. Four leading members of the LIFG, who later participated in the overthrow of Qaddafi, escaped back to Afghanistan in 1998 where they provided training to al-Qaeda in camps situated in Jalalabad and Kabul.
Kronos Advisory LLC in its Dec. 16, 2011 report A View to Extremist Currents in Libya reports that JTF-GTMO analysts have asserted that most LIFG fighters fought with bin Laden in Afghanistan and trained at the OBLsponsored Torkham Camp on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. LIFG fighters played a critical role preparing al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters for operations targeting Western forces. Leaked JIF-GTMO detainee assessments reveal training provided at a camp in Afghanistan by one LIFG military committee official was so renowned that Yemeni al-Qaeda member Zuhail Abdo Anam Said al-Sharabi, who underwent training to become a suicide bomber for an aborted component of the original 9/11 attacks, told interrogators he traveled to Afghanistan to undergo training there to prepare for participation in the 9/11 plot. A note contained in the 9/11 Commission Report reveals that the so-called mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Shaykh Mohammad, claimed to have provided members of the LIFG computer training. LIFG member Abu Anas al-Libi was indicted along with Osama bin Laden for the August 7, 1998 al-Qaeda bombings of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. He is now believed to be operating clandestinely in Libya. JTF-GTMO detainee assessments reveal the LIFGs guesthouse in Jalalabad, Afghanistan was visited by many prominent terrorists, including in 2000 by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who later became the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq. In 2001, when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, Belhadj, who had returned to Afghanistan in 1998, fled to Tora Bora with Osama bin Laden. Sami al-Saadi, the spiritual leader of the LIFG, elected to stay in Kabul to fight the U.S. forces. Both eventually escaped. Two other members of the LIFG who later participated in the Obama-led overthrow of Qaddafi, were arrested by the Pakistanis and handed over to the U.S. They were Abul Hakim al-Hasadi and Abu Sufian bin Qumu, both originally from Derna, Libya. Al-Hasadi, who had fought for five years in Afghanistan, was sent back to Libya and jailed. When he was released in 2008, he recruited Libyans to join Al-Qaeda to fight the U.S. in Iraq. Qumu was sent to Guantanamo until he was later returned to Abu Salim prison in Tripoli. He was released in 2010. In 2004, Belhadj and Sami Al-Saadi were captured by the CIA in Bangkok, Thailand, and returned to Libya, where they were also imprisoned in Abu Selim. This was shortly after Tony Blair had organized the recognition of Qaddafi by the West. At the time, Blair stated that Qaddafi wanted to join the West in combating al-Qaeda.
Al-Saadi, whom Taliban leader Mullah Omar once called the Sheikh of the Arabs, was the author of a plan to overthrow Qaddafi. This plan was found in the home of Abd al-Rahman al-Faquih in Birmingham, U.K., during a police raid in the middle of the last decade. Al-Faquih had been convicted in absentia by a Moroccan court for complicity in the May 2003 suicide bombings in Casablanca. This same war pla
