Saudis are ‘Preferential Fall Guys’: Ken O’Keefe on the Redacted 28 Pages

In his usual characteristic and “colorful” language, Ken O’Keefe dissects the so-called redacted 28 pages as well as the ingrained corruption and dysfunctionality of the US political system, plus a few other topics. The last time I posted a Ken O’Keefe video we had a complaint from one of our readers about the profanity–and yes it’s true, I normally don’t post anything containing a lot of obscene language. But O’Keefe, in addition to being an ex-US Marine, is also an unabashed truth-teller, so in his case I normally make an exception.
An interesting aside to all this is that while the US has begun to accuse the Saudis of a role in 9/11, the Saudis are now launching a counterattack. A few days ago,Brietbart published a report saying that Saudi media outlets are now alleging (accurately, I might add) that the buildings which collapsed on 9/11 were brought down as a result of controlled demolition.
The report particularly singles out an article from the London-based Al-Hayat, a Saudi-owned publication, that was published on April 28. Here is a key passage from that article:
September 11 is one of winning cards in the American archives, because all the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the U.S. Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings. … Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation – they were not the reason for the collapse. But the U.S. still spreads blame in all directions.
While the US and Saudi Arabia are now–somewhat comically–pointing fingers at each other over 9/11, regrettably  neither has worked up the nerve to utter a damning word implicating Israel. Perhaps the Saudis would do well to realize that while they may think they have a nice buddy-buddy relationship with the Zionist state, in the US–a nation whose Congress is totally under the thumb of the pro-Israel lobby–they are nothing more than the “preferential fall guys.”

For right now, at any rate, it’s little other than a gunfight in the O.K. Corral between Saudi Arabia and the US, with Israel sitting over on the sidelines taking it all in, bemused. But significantly, perhaps, the Brietbart report is datelined “Tel Aviv,” the article having been authored by Israeli writer Deborah Danan, while the translation of the Al-Hayat article was provided by MEMRI–all of which might suggest nervousness in certain quarters as to where all these accusations and counter-accusations may eventually be leading.
