Saudi Impunity on American Soil: FBI finds Saudi Arabia helps its citizens escape the U.S. after serious crimes while U.S. officials look the other way
By Julio Severo
A new report from the FBI has revealed that the Islamic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia “almost certainly” helps its citizens escape prosecution for serious crimes they are charged with in the U.S., and American officials have looked the other way for years.
“(Saudi) officials are unlikely to alter this practice in the near term unless the US Government (USG) directly addresses this issue with (Saudi Arabia) and ties US cooperation on (Saudi) priorities to ceasing this activity,” according to the FBI.
It is the first time a federal law enforcement agency acknowledged the “secret” practice of Saudi Arabia.
To make things worse, if a Saudi who committed a crime in the U.S. escapes to Saudi Arabia there is no chance for justice. While allies, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia do not have an extradition treaty, making it difficult and unlikely that a Saudi citizen charged with a crime in the U.S. would be released without diplomatic or political pressure.
Among cases of Saudi Arabia helping its citizens to escape the U.S. justice is a Saudi student wanted for killing a 15-year-old girl in Oregon almost four years ago.
Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah, 21, was due to stand trial in Portland in June 2017, but vanished nine days before the start date.
He was on bail on a single count of manslaughter for allegedly killing Fallon Smart by running her over as she crossed the road on August 19, 2016.
Noorah, who was studying on a scholarship at Portland Community College, was driving on a suspended license at the time.
Despite Fallon’s families’ pleas to deny him bail, it was set at $1million and a tenth, $100,000, was paid by the Saudi Arabian embassy in Los Angeles, triggering his release.
The conditions of his release stated that he had to remain under house arrest. As part of his bail conditions, Noorah was forced to surrender his passport.
Nine days before his trial was due to start, however, police discovered that the electronic ankle bracelet he was forced to wear had been removed and were unable to find him.
He was then later believed to have fled on a private jet with the help of his country’s consulate. He vanished after being picked up from his college campus in a black SUV.
U.S. authorities suspect Noorah used an illicit passport to escape to Saudi Arabia on a private jet provided by the Saudi consulate.
Saudi officials confirmed to U.S. authorities that Noorah had returned to Saudi Arabia seven days after he went missing.
Officials with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and US Marshals Service are certain the Saudi government was involved in Noorah’s escape.
An investigation by The Oregonian revealed that four other Saudi students, who were studying in Oregon and facing similar circumstances to Noorah, had also fled the U.S. in recent years.
All were young men studying at one of Oregon’s public colleges or universities with assistance from Saudi Arabia.
Waleed Ali Alharthi, who was an Oregon State University student, was found allegedly in possession of child porn in April of 2015.
Police said they found pornographic videos on his laptop involving children. He was arrested and booked on 10 counts of encouraging child sex abuse.
The consulate also put up the security deposit for his $500,000 bail. Later, he fled. He was flown from Mexico City to Paris to Saudi Arabia.
In a similar case a few years prior, Abdulaziz Al Duways was arrested in December 2014 over the rape of a female classmate at Western Oregon University.
He was charged with rape and held on a $500,000 bond. Days later, a Saudi consulate official paid his bond and Al Duways vanished before he faced court.
In 2012, Oregon State University student Ali Hussain Alhamoud was charged with raping a young woman.
He was released on bail, which the Saudi government posted, and he flew back to Saudi Arabia that same day.
Sami Suliman Almezaini, of Gallatin County, Montana, is accused of raping his female roommate in July 2017, the same month he disappeared.
Saud Alabdullatif, of Spokane County, Washington, disappeared in May 2016. He was charged with forcible second-degree rape and unlawful imprisonment after he forced a woman to perform oral sex on him that month.
Abdullah Almakrami, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, disappeared one month after he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in March 2014.
Hani Alshammary, of Erie County, Pennsylvania, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in April 2014.
He was charged with attempted rape, forcible compulsion, unlawful restraint, harassment and disorderly conduct.
Fahad Al Ghuwainem, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, disappeared in December 2014, two months after he allegedly raped a man with a male accomplice after the three linked up at a gay bar.
Siraj Marakeey, of Snohomish County, Washington, disappeared July 1991. He was accused of first-degree rape for sexually assaulting a child in June 1991.
These are not the only Saudi crimes overlooked by U.S. officials. There are vastly bigger crimes. There is the 9/11, committed by mostly Saudi terrorists. Yet, Saudi Arabia “warned it would start selling as much as $750 billion in Treasuries and other assets if Congress passes a bill allowing the kingdom to be held liable in U.S. courts for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.”
If Iranians had raped and killed Americans on American soil, it would be impossible for them to escape from the U.S., especially with the aid of the Iranian embassy and consulates.
If Iranians had committed the 9/11, it would be impossible for Iran to escape from the U.S. military interventions.
Saudi Arabia goes unpunished for any of its misdeeds because it is “one of America’s largest foreign creditors.”
So this is the reason that the U.S. military deploys thousands of young Americans to die “patriotically” for the Saudis. And for the sake of Saudis, the U.S. military kills. They killed an Iranian general — obviously, to please Saudis, who hate Iranians.
“But why should the US continue to so robustly support this dictatorial regime? Certainly, these close relations can’t be due to any American support for democracy and human rights. The Saudi regime is one of the world’s most illiberal and anti-democratic regimes. Its ruling class has repeatedly been connected to Islamist terrorist groups, with Foreign Policy magazine last year calling Saudi Arabia ‘the beating heart of Wahhabism — the harsh, absolutist religious creed that helped seed the worldviews of al Qaeda and the Islamic State.’ … The answer lies in the fact the Saudi state is at the center of US efforts to maintain the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, and to ensure global demand for US debt.”
In 1974 the U.S. made a devil’s deal with Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia and its Islamic allies would use only dollars for their oil transactions, strengthening the dollar as the world currency, and the U.S. would protect Saudi Arabia from its geopolitical enemies. The deal also included that Saudi Arabia had to invest in the U.S. and buy the massive U.S. debt. Saudi Arabia has done it, and as result the U.S. is, through its own debts, enslaved to Saudi Arabia.
Pompeo, who is an evangelical, traveled to Saudi Arabia representing the U.S. government and Christianity, because whatever post you have, you cannot dissociate your Christianity from it. The anti-reality reward was given by a U.S. citizen representing the U.S. government and evangelicals.
Will America with her evangelicals spend all the eternity pleasing her Saudi terrorist creditors?
