US-Saudi showdown over 9/11

It appears somebody powerful wants to use the hidden history of 9/11 to pressure the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia–and the Saudis are pushing back. King Salman has let it be known that he will sell off the kingdom’s holdings of US Treasury bonds–the third largest reserve in the world–if a bill in Congress that would allow the Saudis to be held accountable for whatever role they might have played in the events of September 11, 2001.
