The Saudi royal family was “deeply involved” in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed thousands of Americans, says Gordon Duff, an American political commentator and Marine combat veteran.
Duff, a senior editor at Veterans Today, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on a report which says Saudi Arabia is recruiting US military veterans in an attempt to kill a recently-passed law allowing 9/11 families to sue Saudi nationals for their alleged role in facilitating the terrorist attacks.
The website 28Pages.org, which is dedicated to exposing Saudi links to 9/11 and other buried truths about the terrorist attacks, called the Saudi campaign “a brazen effort.”
Duff described the Saudi initiative to hire military veterans to eviscerate the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) as “a bizarre ploy.”
He said that “there is a huge amount of evidence that the Saudi royal family, Saudi government itself and others were deeply involved in 9/11.”
The September 11, 2001 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage.
Of the 19 hijackers that allegedly carried out the attacks, 15 were Saudi nationals and available evidence suggests some of them were linked to high-ranking Saudi officials.
