We have been betrayed

[from the comments section of an article titled “Disgrace in Saudi Arabia: U.S. ally set to behead third teenager for attending a protest – Salon.com] :

My husband was killed in the World Trade Center.  The US government never investigated the sources of financial and logistical support for the hijackers – because they already knew who was responsible. The lawyers for the 9/11 families and survivors have a mountain evidence that implicates  Saudis in the 9/11 attacks but we cannot present it at a trial due in large part to the efforts of the State Department. They sided with the Saudis and against us in court citing diplomatic reasons. They continue to block our efforts to have important documents declassified which are vital to the safety and security of Americans.  They are stalling legislation that would eliminate the loophole which is allowing Saudi Arabia to claim sovereign immunity.  The Saudis bought themselves friends and influence with the US and it’s actors and they have a free pass to wreak havoc and spread terror. It’s outrageous. We have been betrayed.
