The following article was posted at ZeroHedge on Sunday, . . . :
White House Set To Release Secret Pages From Sept 11 Report
which I found curious considering this from the 19th::
Saudi Arabia threatens to destabilize the US economy if Obama releases 9/11 report
But then an article was posted at ZeroHedge on Tuesday, which shed some light on what is happening between Obama and Saudi Arabia. While there isn't a threat of 'physical' war between us and the Saudis, there is certainly the threat of 'economic' war, and this article shows that what is going on has a lot more to do with Russia then one might initially realize.
A famous 3 am call did take place in Doha on Sunday. The young Salman called the Saudi delegation and told them the deal was off. Every other energy market player was stunned by the reversion.
Yet the true story, according to a financial source with very close links to the House of Saud, is that “the United States threatened the Prince that night with the most dire consequences if he did not back down on the oil price freeze.”
So – predictably — this goes way beyond an internal Saudi matter, or the Prince’s “erratic” behavior, even as the House of Saud is indeed racked by multiple instances of fear and paranoia, as I analysed here.
As the source explains, an oil production cut would have “hindered the US goal of bankrupting Russia via an oil price war, which is what this is all about. Even the Prince is not that erratic.” (emphasis ZeroHedge)
Wait, what? There's more?
The heart of the whole matter is that Washington has been threatening Riyadh to freeze Saudi assets all across the spectrum if the House of Saud does not “cooperate” in the oil price war against Russia.
That reached the tipping point of the Saudis shaking the entire turbo-capitalist financial universe by issuing their own counter threat; the so-called $750 billion response.
The — burning — issue of freezing all Saudi assets across the planet has come up with the US Congress considering a bill exposing he Saudi connection to 9/11. (emphasis ZeroHedge)
And there's more, including what the Saudis could do as their 'nuclear option,' but Obama is probably sure the Saudis won't have the nerve to do.

"One of the things that we have been doing is spending a lot more time positioning our missile defense systems, so that even as we try to resolve the underlying problem of nuclear development inside of North Korea, we're also setting up a shield that can at least block the relatively low-level threats that they're posing right now."
