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.
