Saudis Confirm That They Were Offered Bin Laden In 1996
Saudis Confirm That They Were Offered Bin Laden In 1996: WorldNetDaily and Geostrategy-Direct talk about the story that the mainstream media refuses to report….
“American businessman Monsour Ijaz has said that the Sudanese government offered to send bin Laden to the United States in 1996, but the Clinton administration rejected the offer and instead suggested he be sent to Saudi Arabia. After the Saudis turned down the offer, bin Laden was sent to Afghanistan where he eventually developed the plot to attack the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal told reporters last week in Saudi Arabia that bin Laden was stripped of Saudi citizenship in 1994 for advocating the use of terrorism.
“In 1996, the Sudanese president offered to hand him over to Saudi Arabia provided that it agreed not to bring him to court,” he said. “The Saudi government turned down the offer because we wanted to bring him to justice. At that time, and on instructions from the Saudi leadership, we shared the information we obtained on Osama bin Laden with the CIA.”
Hello — Peter Jennings, Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw — where are you? How can the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, & CNN all continue to ignore this story? Why do we not have reporters asking Bill Clinton about this story? Shouldn’t the American people be aware that Bill Clinton was offered Osama Bin Laden and turned him down?
