Bernie Sanders Says America Needs New 9/11 Investigation

Sanders says America needs new 9/11 investigation to get truth

Bernie Sanders has called for a fresh new 9/11 investigation to get to the “root cause” of what happened on September 11, 2001. 

In an interview aired on Sunday, Sanders said he supports Senate legislation that will allow families of 9/11 victims to sue foreign governments, such as Saudi Arabia, for their involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

I think there’s a lot about Saudi Arabia that we don’t fully understand. And I want to get to the root cause of it,” Sanders told NBC News.  “The root of what Saudi Arabia has done.” reports:

Remarking that there is “some evidence — and we will have to ascertain whether it’s accurate or not — that money from Saudi Arabia actually funded a 9/11 attack,” Sanders noted that Saudi money “is going all over the world” to fund the austere Wahhabi form of Islam.

“And I think that the full extent of the role that Saudi Arabia plays in supporting extremism in this world is something that we should explore,” Sanders said.

Hillary Clinton has voiced support for the bill, which is co-sponsored by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

The White House has suggested that President Barack Obama would veto the bill if it came to his desk, concerned that it could lead to retaliatory lawsuits against American citizens living abroad.

Sanders has also called for the declassification of 28 redacted pages from the Joint Congressional Inquiry completed in 2002, which could provide more information on connections between the Saudi government and the hijackers. The Vermont senator told CBS last Monday that he would not read the 28 pages, however, because, “The difficulty is, you see then, if you read them, then you’re gonna ask me a question, you’re gonna say, ‘You read them, what’s in them?’ And now I can tell you honestly I have not.”

For her part, Clinton has declined to comment on whether she has read the portions that remain classified.

    The US and Israel also need to be sued! They had an even greater role than Saudi Arabia!

    • Jason Wilson

      Shhhhhhhh! Someone might hear you! 😉 Don’t tell them about the USS Liberty incident, either.

      • Spelunker4Plato

        or the Transfer Agreement

        or the King David Hotel Bombing

        or how Hamas was created by Israel

          am i the only one wondering about the roof kangaroo? ….

    • Sjefke Bruhl

      Got proof?

  • Silence Is Golden

    Wtf Hillary? You either read them or you didn’t. By declining to answer I’d say you did. And there must be some damning information in those papers. No transparency from this woman. I don’t give a damn about your tax returns. I want to know what you know and what you’ve said.

  • James Yates

    Not only has Hillary read the classified portions, she’s emailed copies of them to all of her friends!

    I told Senator Bernie Sanders about the 28 Pages at two places in Iowa and he gave me the cold shoulder.
    But Donald Trump took an interest and made the 28 Pages main stream news.

    Right way to go Senator !

    Discounting the Official Narrative as the absurdity it so clearly is, there are just two organisations on the entire planet with the expertise, assets, access and political protection necessary to have both executed 9/11 and effected its cover-up to date (ie the means). Both are Intelligence Agencies – the CIA and the Israeli Mossad whose motives were arguably the most compelling. Those motives dovetailed perfectly with the Neocon PNAC agenda, with it’s explicitly stated need for “…a catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor” [1] in order to mobilise US public opinion for already planned wars, the effects of which would be to destroy Israel’s enemies.

    This article marshals evidence for the proposition that “Israel did it”.

    I’m not sure what his plan is. He’s seemed dismissive in interviews. Hopefully he decides to spring a fresh investigation on us first day, free from conflicts of interest, with subpoena power, and allow the explosions testimony, WTC 7 and newer evidence like the thermate composites from the dust etc. But I’m not holding my breath

  • Jeremy

    Ah yes, they’re going to try and blame it on Saudi Arabia.. lol

    • Crimson Wolf

      Don’t kid yourself, Saudi Arabia was involved as were the Pakistani CIA. Both working as outsourced agents of the Cheney regime. The Saudis and the Israelis are tighter than most people realize and have common enemies… most who have now experienced “regime change”. They are the receivers’ of the bulk of US taxpayers annual billions in “foreign aid”. (Israel #1 and the Saudis #2) The Saudis benefitted by the destruction of Iraq even more than Israel did, which was considerable. The Cheney Regime used a lot of outside help and foreign patsies to pull off the attacks. Harder to trace back to the source. 28 pages? Tip of the iceberg. Let’s get to the “9/11 Dancing Israelis” next.

  • Crimson Wolf

    Hurray for Sanders! Bernie cuts no one any slack and fearlessly goes where the truth leads him. Make him the next president any way we can. (Write him in, if there is no other way.)

  • KAhern

    Will he investigate the role of the Neocons in 9/11?

  • George Lowe

    so not actually a 9/11 investigation,
    just more spin.

  • James Smith

    Mr. blatant prima facie proven war criminal Bernie Sanders wants a new 9/11 investigation? I bet he does.

    All politicians are war criminals, like Bernie sanders collocating with being a patriot but they’re playing like they’re a patriot but in reality are war criminals and I can prove it too…
