NEW YORK, NY.-There was a story recently that didn’t get enough attention; but it should and we need to make certain it keeps getting attention.  It’s about the attacks on 9/11 and one reason the story has been buried is that a lot of people really don’t want to know if it’s true.

For years questions have lingered about the possible role Saudi Arabia played in the attacks.

Saudi Arabia is seen by both the Bush and Obama administrations as an important ally in the Middle East, they help us with oil, with counter-terrorism; you’ll remember this famous picture of president Bush holding hands with a prince from the royal family and President Obama allegedly bowing to the Saudi king.

But now thanks to a lawsuit from the families of the 9/11 victims, new information is out that needs to be thoroughly investigated.

In a deposition, former Senator Bob Graham, who led the congressional inquiry into the attacks, said 'I believe there was a direct link between at least some of the terrorists who carried out the September 11th attacks and the government of Saudi Arabia'.

Former Senator Bob Kerry, who was also part of the investigation added, 'significant questions remain unanswered' about the role of Saudi Arabia in the attacks.

Don’t look to Washington to investigate this; our government joined in with the Saudi government in trying to block the lawsuit by the 9/11 families claiming Saudi Arabia has immunity.

This is something our government just doesn’t want to know, which is despicable.

Bravo to the 9/11 families who’s broken hearts compel them to keep searching for answers.

I’ll will keep passing along any information I get from their lawsuit; because it is important know the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it turns out to be.
