According to PolitiFact, Facebook flagged (and apparently deleted) a January 6th 2020 Facebook post which said that “Saudi terrorists has killed more Americans on our soil than any other nation. They rent the entire 45th floor of Trump Tower, And pay him in cash.https://archive.li/p3GUf Politifact calls this mostly false, but it’s actually mostly true and, perhaps, entirely true. More importantly, it points to a larger truth, and for that reason should not have been deleted.

This excerpt is from a US Congressional report about the relationship between Saudi Arabia and 9/11 terrorists.

It too has been moved or deleted: https://intelligence.house.gov/uploadedfiles/declasspart4.pdf A copy can be found within this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_28_pages

Politifact appears to be nit-picking over details of how the Facebook post was written. They even made a mistake in their own title, because it is Trump World Tower rather than Trump Tower. While Saudi Arabia bought the entire 45th floor, tenants have to buy an amenities fee which is a form of rent. When the Saudis bought it in 2001, this charge was already $85,585 per year. The post said that they pay cash, and – who knows- they may. Plus, Trump World Towers has lots of empty units, though fewer than they had in 2013. We also don’t know if they paid for it, or are still buying it. Even if they had sold it, there is a connection there. Plus, Osama Bin Laden’s brother lived in Trump Tower at one point.

Fact-checking Facebook post about Saudi terrorists and Saudis on 45th floor of Trump Tower By Tom Kertscher on Friday“, January 10th, 2020 at 4:50 p.m. Politifact: https://archive.li/p3GUf

Osama Bin Laden’s half brother, Shafiq Bin Laden, lived in Trump Tower in 1986. Trump sold the 45th floor of Trump World Tower to Saudi Arabia, in the months before 911. This included an annual charge of $85,585 for “amenities”. It was sold to Saudi Arabia at the time that the CIA started receiving a “barrage of intelligence” pointing to “imminent attacks against unspecified US interests“. Trump has done business with rich Saudis for at least 35 years. Isn’t it past time that we start asking who Donald J. Trump really is?

The Trump Administration just allowed a whole bunch of Saudi military who expressed Anti-American and/or Pro-Jihadist sympathies, and/or were involved in Child Porn return back to Saudi Arabia, even though one of their comrades in arms was an Islamist terrorist who killed and injured US military on a US base in Florida: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2020/01/14/pensacola-attack-by-saudi-royal-air-force-officer-ruled-islamist-terrorism-21-saudis-sent-home-over-pro-jihadist-anti-american-sentiments-or-child-porn/

Why has Trump been associated with people such as Iran-Contra arms dealer Adnan Khashogghi? He dined with him around the same period as the Iran-Contra scandal was going on. Why is no one asking? WTF is Trump?

Adnan’s nephew, Jamal Khashogghi, knew Osama Bin Laden. According to John Bradley, Jamal “Khashoggi had dirt on Saudi links to al Qaeda before the 9/11 attacks. He had befriended Osama bin Laden in the 1980s and 1990s… Khashoggi was the only non-royal Saudi who had the beef on the royals’ intimate dealing with al Qaeda in the lead-up to the 9/11 attacks… Like the Saudi royals, Khashoggi dissociated himself from bin Laden after 9/11…” He then became an advisor to Prince Turki Al Faisal, “who had been Saudi intelligence chief from 1977 until just ten days before the 9/11 attacks, when he inexplicably resigned…” He also “mixed with British, US and Saudi intelligence officials….” See: “Death of a dissident: Saudi Arabia and the rise of the mobster state What the media aren’t saying about Jamal Khashoggi” by John R.

C27281-24, King Fahd and the Reagan’s greeting Ivana Trump with Donald Trump at a state dinner for King Fahd of Saudi Arabia in the blue room. 2/11/85.

In 1985 Osama Bin Laden’s (supposedly westernized) half brother, Shafique, put a deposit on an apartment in Trump Tower and lived there for four months in 1986.[1] He was a guest of honor at the Carlye Group’s DC Conference on 911 (Sept. 11, 2001). He met with Bush, Sr., and James Baker there. He was also one of the Bin Laden family members who left the US on September 19, 2001, aboard a plane often chartered by President Bush for the Press Corps. [2]

Trump sold the 45th floor of Trump World Tower to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for $4.5 million in June 2001, according to a city Finance Department spokeswoman.” There were “yearly common charges of $85,585 for building amenities“. It only became part of the Saudi Mission to the UN seven years later, in 2008. [1] Did they have a room with a view of 911?

Beginning in June 2001, we [the CIA] received a barrage of intelligence indicating that al-Qa’ida associates in Afghanistan and abroad expected imminent attacks against unspecified US interests” [3]

The New York Ties writes: Trump’s Misleading Claim That He Warned About Osama bin Laden The warning amounted to a fleeting mention in his 2000 book, which was published after Osama bin Laden was already one of the world’s most wanted terrorists“. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/19/us/politics/fact-check-trump-bin-laden-pakistan-mcraven.html

While this may be true, Trump’s relationship with the Saudis, and the Bin Ladens, in this period, should be examined.

The Saudi government has continued to back Islamic extremists, as well as making people more open to extremism through their policies.

Saudi Arabia has continued to support Islamic extremism (al-Qaeda affiliates) as well as contributing to the creation of more desperate people through war, who may be more open to extremism.

Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman was already Saudi Minister of Defense when Saudi Arabia supported the formation of “The Army of Conquest” in Syria which was primarily composed of al-Qaeda affiliate the al-Nusra Front, as well as Ahrar al-Sham, with a similar ideology. In Yemen he began an air war against the Houthis and Yemen’s army which benefited al-Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula. This is based on a German Intel memo.

If he is no longer connected, we don’t know when he stopped being connected, either. If it’s a coincidence, it’s a freakish one.

What did Hillary say about Saudi Arabia? “…we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.” [4]

It has been a very long time since John Podesta worked with his older brother Tony. Some siblings are similar and some are opposites.

Just because things happen at the same time doesn’t mean that they are related, but it is increasingly difficult to imagine that these connections don’t matter.

Saudi Arabia buying Trump World Towers 45th floor from the future # 45 President just before 911 is freakishly weird.
