The usual suspects are taking a critical tone to The Blaze’s ongoing reports of the Saudi national who has been handled in a way that leaves more questions than answers. Why the media is so quick to defend the government is curious, considering after 9/11 several private planes shuttled Saudi nationals out of America when all other planes were grounded.
Glenn had more on radio this morning:
GLENN : You know, I don’t know if you saw this last night. I mean, this is conspiracy theory kind of stuff. This is the 9/11 commission report and so if you go through the 9/11 commission report and you see the black in here, this is all the stuff that was allowed in. However, the Saudis, the Saudis got to us when this was published and they met with the president and said, “You’re not going to put all that stuff in about us, are you?” So anytime you see any red in the 9/11 commission report, it’s the stuff that has been removed and redacted but it’s only just a little bit. You’ll notice that there’s really no red in this at all. And just, you know, a few lines here and there might be redacted from the Saudis. They were really kind of very, very clear that they just didn’t want anything at all about them in here and ‑‑
PAT: You’ve got page after page after page that says redacted in red.
GLENN: But it’s just a few little things that they wanted.
STU: Seem to be about 50 consecutive pages.
GLENN: And nobody even talks about that.
GLENN: Nobody even talks about that.
PAT: That was during Bush, right?
GLENN: That was during Bush. This is not a problem with this president. This is a problem with our government. Our government is playing footsies with the Saudi Arabian government, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They are pushing poison into our society through the Muslim Brotherhood and through all of their nice little school things. It’s been redacted from the 9/11 commission, and it’s going to happen again unless Americans stand now.
