If this is true, why are we not allowed to see this the censored part of the report? The only reason would appear to be to protect the Saudis.

Via NY Post:

Just 15 days before the 9/11 attacks, a well-connected Saudi family suddenly abandoned their luxury home in Sarasota, Fla., leaving behind jewelry, clothes, opulent furniture, a driveway full of cars — including a brand new Chrysler PT Cruiser — and even a refrigerator full of food.

About the only thing not left behind was a forwarding address. The occupants simply vanished without notifying their neighbors, realtor or even mail carrier.

The 3,300-square-foot home on Escondito Circle belonged to Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of then-King Fahd. But at the time, it was occupied by his daughter and son-in-law, who beat a hasty retreat back to Saudi Arabia just two weeks before the attacks after nearly a six-year stay here.

Neighbors took note of the troubling coincidence and called the FBI, which opened an investigation that led to the startling discovery that at least one “family member” trained at the same flight school as some of the 9/11 hijackers in nearby Venice, Fla.

The investigation into the prominent Saudi family’s ties to the hijackers started on Sept. 19, 2001, and remained active for several years. It was led by the FBI’s Tampa field office but also involved the bureau’s field offices in New York and Washington, and also the Southwest Florida Domestic Security Task Force.

Agents identified persons of interest in the case, establishing their ties to other terrorists, sympathies with Osama bin Laden and anti-American remarks. They looked into their bank accounts, colleges and places of employment. They tracked at least one suspect’s re-entry into the US.

California Won’t Be Able to Pay for All That Free Healthcare for Illegals


Independent Sentinel

California is working hard to facilitate illegal immigration while other states are looking at immigration enforcement. They’re giving away freebies, including healthcare.

California is a one-party government, like the old Soviet Union, and there’s little in the way of effective opposition. They like to spread around other people’s money especially to poor illegal aliens.

Californians already offer health services free or at low cost to the uninsured, low-income residents who don’t get it under Obamacare.

Several counties offer the same healthcare to illegal aliens.

North Texas Islamic Tribunal Using Sharia Law To Settle Disputes

Free Republic

Sharia Law, it’s how Muslims settle disputes in many countries. Now, that law is being practiced in what’s believed to be a first-of-its-kind institution operating in the United States.

In North Texas, just outside of Dallas, three men are the judges who make up what they call the Islamic Tribunal.

“To help to solve the problems and the disputes between two parties,” said Imam Moujahed Bakhach.

Following Sharia, or Islamic law, the tribunal is operating as a legal nonprofit registered with the state of Texas.

On their website it states, “The need for a mediation and non-binding arbitration firm that adheres to Islamic principles in the Muslim community has been a long time in the making.”

The judges say they only deal with civil cases in the community, helping settle issues ranging from business disputes to divorce.

Promises: Not long after FCC chairman Tom Wheeler swore that the FCC takeover of the Internet wouldn’t result in new taxes or fees, it appears likely that new taxes will show up on Internet bills in the near future.

In a speech a few weeks before the FCC voted to approve its “net neutrality” rules, Chairman Tom Wheeler promised there would be “no tariffs, no new taxes” as a result.

Later that month, FCC spokeswoman Kim Hart promised that the new regulatory scheme “does not raise taxes or fees. Period.”

If that sounds suspiciously like Obama’s promise that under ObamaCare you would be able to “keep your plan. Period,” there’s a good reason.

Air Force general who warned of ‘treason’ for A-10 comments is removed

Free Republic

Maj. Gen. James N. Post was speaking to a group of about 300 airmen at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada in January when he began to talk about the ongoing budget battle in Congress and how the Air Force would need to divest the A-10 in order to move forward on some of its other airframes.

The Air Force commander who warned fellow airmen that speaking positively of the A-10s performance to members of Congress could be considered “treason” has been removed from office, the Air Force announced Friday.

Maj. Gen. James N. Post was speaking to a group of about 300 airmen at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada in January when he began to talk about the ongoing budget battle in Congress and how the Air Force would need to divest the A-10 in order to move forward on some of its other airframes.

“In the course of his remarks [Post] discussed the importance of loyalty to senior leader decisions [on the A-10] and used the word “treason” in describing his thoughts on communication by airmen counter to those decisions,” the Air Force said in a statement released Friday.

In the prepared statement, Post offered his apologies for the incident.

“My impromptu remarks at the January Weapons and Tactics conference regarding the future of the A-10 have regrettably sparked a lot of controversy and attention. I hope my departure from ACC will enable the command to refocus on the mission as soon as possible.”

After an investigation by the Air Force inspector general it was determined that Post’s comments had a “chilling effect on some of the attendees and caused them to feel constrained from communicating with members of Congress,” the Air Force said.

The Air Force has been criticized over the last few months in its handling of the A-10 in its quest to divest the close air support airframe, particularly in how it has previously reported the attack aircraft’s role in combat compared to the Air Force’s other bombers and attack planes.

Gen. Hawk Carlisle, commander of Air Combat Command where Post was assigned, issued a letter of reprimand and had Post moved from his position as vice commander at the command.

It was not immediately clear where Post was moved to.
