Former Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman said that the US government’s cover-up of Saudi Arabia’s role in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks are associated with the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.
“The association is, Saudi Arabia has legitimately received the message by our United States cover-up of their role in 9/11, that they have impunity, that they can act as they want without sanction. It has allowed them to provide financial support first for al-Qaeda, then for groups like al-Shabaab, and now for ISIS [the Islamic State],” Bob Graham told Sputnik.The cover-up has led Saudi Arabia to promoting the most extreme form of Sunni Islam, Wahhabism, former Senate Intelligence Chairman added.
Graham led the 2002 Senate investigation into the 9/11 attacks when he served as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. He is currently campaigning for a Senate bill to declassify 28 pages of the 2002 Senate report which allegedly documents Saudi involvement in providing material and financial support to the hijackers who attacked the United States.Three gunmen attacked the office of a weekly French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday morning, killing 12 people. No terrorist group has yet claimed responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo attack.
LIVE: At Least 12 Reported Dead at Paris Magazine Office Shooting
Twelve people were killed in a shooting at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper that was joking about Muslim prophet, French TV channel iTELE reported.
“About a half an hour ago two black-hooded men entered the building with Kalashnikovs. A few minutes later we heard lots of shots,” a witness told local TV station iTele, adding that the men were then seen fleeing the building.
A possible reason for the attack is the current issue of Charlie Hebdo, which contains a story on the new novel by writer Michel Houellebecq about the Islamization of France.
In addition, one of the magazine’s recent tweets included a cartoon of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Back in 2011, Charlie Hebdo’s office was fire-bombed right after it published controversial cartoons about the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

The attackers stormed the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo calling the journalists who were holding an editorial meeting by name and shouting that their prophet had been avenged, AFP reports citing a police source.
It has now been confirmed by Charlie Hebdo’s lawyer that four of the magazine’s cartoonists were killed in the attack: Cabu, Wolinski, Charb and Tignous.
Twelve people in total including two policemen are confirmed to have been killed in the shooting.
The left-wing satirical weekly newspaper has a history of pocking fun at the Prophet Muhammad but also at popes, presidents and France’s high and mighty.
Charlie Hebdo hit the international headlines in November 2011, when its offices were firebombed following publication of a cartoon on the front page of the Prophet Muhammad threatening readers with “a hundred lashes if you don’t die laughing.”
The attack completely gutted its Paris offices and its staff received death threats but just six days later it published another cartoon of one of its male cartoonists passionately kissing a bearded Muslim man in front of the bombed out building with the headline ‘love is stronger than hate.’
Later that year, despite appeals from the French government not to go ahead with the publication, it published another cartoon of a naked Prophet Muhammad, followed by one of him being pushed around in a wheelchair by an orthodox Jew.
This was against the backdrop of protests all over the Muslim world against a low-budget US film called The Innocence of Muslims ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad.
The publication prompted the French government to close embassies and schools in 20 countries.
This week’s front page featured author Michel Houllebecq, whose latest book called Soumission depicts France in 2022 being ruled by an Islamic government.
In the past Charb defended the magazine’s work and told the Associated Press in 2012, “A pencil is not a weapon. It’s just a means of expression.”
“Mohammed isn’t sacred to me. I don’t blame Muslim’s for not laughing at our drawings. I live under French law. I don’t live under Quranic law,” he said.
Charlie Hebdo’s offices have been under police protection since the 2011 incident with Charbonnier saying that he would continue to mock Islam until“Islam is just as banal as Catholicism.”
And it’s not just Muslims who have been the butt of Charlie Hebdo’s jokes. Pope Benedict appeared on the front cover in an amorous embrace with a Vatican guard, and former French president Nicolas Sarkozy was sketched looking like a sick vampire.
In 2012 Charb told Reuters that nobody noticed when the paper ridiculed Catholic traditionalists. “But we are not allowed to make fun of Muslim hardliners. It’s the new rule … but we will not obey it,” he said.
We can help bring down the Cabal and defeat the Depopulation Agenda
Big Pharma is one of the sources of funds for the Cabal. It also serves as the weapon of mass destruction via vaccine tainted with live virus it is suppose to protect us from, and the deadly chemicals use to treat our diseases that they caused through our GMO / pesticide contaminated food supply.
We can avoid using drugs, defeat any viral attack and scaremongering easily by knowing how to build our own comprehensive antiviral system. Find more about it here.
You can actually participate in the global efforts to cripple the Deep State organized criminal cabal's ability for genocide, while enjoying healthcare freedom at the same time, by boycotting Big Pharma for good.
