Mr. Kiss & Bow in Saudia Arabia.

The truth is out.

The shaky U.S.-Saudi alliance took another hit Friday as Congress released 28 pages of previously classified information that implicates the Saudi government in the 9/11 attacks. Several government officials, including at least two in the Saudi intelligence apparatus, communicated with and/or assisted the hijackers. There were financial connections, as well, including some to the royal family itself.

However, the report failed to amalgamate two very opposing viewpoints. Some, like Rep. Adam Schiff, argue: “The Intelligence Community and the 9/11 Commission, which followed the Joint Inquiry that produced these so-called 28 pages, investigated the questions they raised and was never able to find sufficient evidence to support them.” But others, like Sen. Richard Blumenthal, say the allegations should not be taken lightly: “While the pages do not reach a conclusion regarding Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks, they provide more than enough evidence to raise serious concerns.”

Indeed. As Paul Sperry writes, “[T]he Saudi government’s ties to the hijackers and other al Qaeda suspects were so extensive that the FBI’s Washington field office created a special squad to investigate the Saudi angle. But this special focus on Saudi Arabia occurred belatedly, only after the 9/11 attacks, ‘due to Saudi Arabia’s status as an American "ally.”’ Astoundingly, investigative resources were not dedicated to Saudi involvement in financing and supporting terrorism prior to 9/11.“ Sperry summarily believes, "Yes, the Saudi government helped the 9/11 terrorists.” Saudi Arabia — erroneously, it would appear — claims it didn’t. About the only conclusion we can glean from Friday’s release is that this issue is nowhere near over.

Obama, kissed, bowed and apologized to Saudi Arabia for America's sins.

Well, that's the official Obama-hater RWNJ talking point as issued.

But a more rational interpretation is different.

Quote:
The White House has said previously classified papers concerning the 9/11 attacks released on Friday show there had been no official Saudi role.

Lawmakers and victims' families campaigned for years for their publication, alleging high-level Saudis were complicit in the attacks.

The pages from the 2002 report found it likely the attackers got financial help from people inside the kingdom.

Obama did not take office until over 7 years AFTER the 9/11 attacks.
What actions did the Bush administration take towards the Saudi's between 9/11/01 and Jan. 2009 regarding the 9/11 attacks?
Feel free to be specific.

Yep, but not on the lips, and not with his eyes closed.
