“Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide.”
A classified memo sent by Secretary of State Clinton last December made it clear that residents of Saudi Arabia and its neighbors are the chief financial supporters of many extremist activities.
Nine years after the U.S. vowed to shut down the money pipeline that finances terrorism, senior Obama administration officials say millions of dollars are flowing unimpeded to extremist groups worldwide from U.S. allies in the Middle East, according to secret diplomatic dispatches.
“It has been an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority,” the cable said.
The dispatch and others offered similarly grim views about the UAE, Qatar, and Kuwait.
The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh reported in February that Saudi authorities remained “almost completely dependent on the CIA” for leads and direction on terrorist financing.
A month earlier, the embassy reported that Treasury Department officials had provided information to the Saudi domestic intelligence service on three senior Taliban leaders who had made several fund-raising trips to the kingdom.

When did it become a secret in the US Administration, that Saudi Arabian nationals are the main sponsors of Islamic terrorism?
For every child above the age of seven, this became obvious on September 11, 2001.
11 of the 12 Islamic terrorists that attacked New York and the Pentagon, were Saudi Arabian nationals.
The US receives 25 per cent of of its oil from Saudi Arabia. The US Economy depends up on the Saudi’s purchasing US Debt treasuries. If this kind of “horse trading” stops, America will go bankrupt.
So the US Government will keep on doing…..Absolutely nothing to stop Islamic terrorism. In fact, the US funds and inflames it, by chasing after the wrong guys. They have done so for 10 years now, and there seems to be no end to this deception.
