Saudi Arabia threatens U.S. economy over 9/11 charges

There is reportedly evidence–censored pages of the official 9/11 report–that some of the 9/11 terrorists received funding from Saudi Arabia, possibly including Saudi officials.    A bill in Congress would allow Saudi Arabia to be held liable in any court proceedings.  Now Saudi Arabia is saying that if that bill passes, it will sell off its $750 billion in American treasury notes and other assets.  This could dramatically lower their value and harm the U.S. economy.

Beyond this specific issue (more details on that after the jump), the Saudi threat shows a big vulnerability in national security.  Countries that own lots of American property or that America owes lots of money to have leverage over us.  What if China cashed out its holdings in the United States?  Or simply stopped buying American debt?  Our national debt is being funded, in large part, by selling our bonds overseas.  Which not only makes us dependent, but makes us vulnerable to foreign coercion, as the Saudis are trying to do.

How ISIS observed Good Friday

ISIS observed Good Friday by crucifying a priest.  After attacking a nursing home in Yemen, shooting four nuns and killing seven others, ISIS kidnapped an Indian Catholic priest, Father Tom Uzhunnalil.  ISIS promised to crucify him on the day that his Savior was crucified.  After torturing him for several weeks, ISIS reportedly carried out their promise.

When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slainfor the word of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”  Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.  (Revelation 6:9-11)

Terrorists attacked Brussels, Belgium, bombing a metro station and the check-in area at the airport.  Over 30 people are dead, with more than 200 injured.  ISIS claims responsibility.
