The New York Post Reports – FBI is Covering Up Saudi Links to 9/11 Attack

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 1.13.10 PM

Former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham, who in 2002 chaired the congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11, maintains the FBI is covering up a Saudi support cell in Sarasota for the hijackers. He says the al-Hijjis’ “urgent” pre-9/11 exit suggests “someone may have tipped them off” about the coming attacks.

Graham has been working with a 14-member group in Congress to urge President Obama to declassify 28 pages of the final report of his inquiry which were originally redacted, wholesale, by President George W. Bush.

“The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11, and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier,” he said, adding, “I am speaking of the kingdom,” or government, of Saudi Arabia, not just wealthy individual Saudi donors.

Sources who have read the censored Saudi section say it cites CIA and FBI case files that directly implicate officials of the Saudi Embassy in Washington and its consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks — which, if true, would make 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war by a foreign government.

– From the New York Post article: How the FBI is Whitewashing the Saudi Connection to 9/11

One of the strangest aspects of the post 9/11 period has been the number of very intelligent people who intimately appreciate and fight against the innumerable crimes and thefts committed by the American oligarchy, yet simply can’t come to terms with the fact that the official story of September 11, 2001 is a heaping pile of bullshit. At the end of the day, I think it’s just a function of managing career risk. Having already achieved some level of public success, not many people will want to give the mainstream media the opportunity to attach “9/11 truther” to their name, thus tarnishing all the other work they do in the mind of the general public.

I’ve never claimed to know exactly what happened on that day. The only thing I’ve said is that we aren’t being told anything close to the whole story, and without the real story, the entire “war on terror” becomes a gigantic scam. I simply don’t believe that a few guys pulled off these attacks and brought down the World Trade Center without state backing. Once state backing enters the equation, the entire thing does indeed become a very real conspiracy. One that takes on special significance if the state sponsor is one of America’s closest allies in the Middle East. An ally that is unquestionably a ruthless, medieval-style monarchy that was itching to rid itself of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

Over the past few years, it has become increasingly obvious that elements within the Saudi government were directly responsible for 9/11. I suggest familiarizing yourself with the following:

Moving along, the New York Post reports that the FBI is going out of its way to cover up this involvement, despite extremely suspicious events that were called into question immediately after 9/11. For example:

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.

Perfectly normal, particularly when you combine it with the fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens.

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 Saudi-9/11 connection in Florida was no small part of the overall 9/11 investigation. Yet it was never shared with Congress. Nor was it mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.

Some report…

Now it’s being whitewashed again, in a newly released report by the 9/11 Review Commission, set up last year by Congress to assess “any evidence now known to the FBI that was not considered by the 9/11 Commission.” Though the FBI acknowledges the Saudi family was investigated, it maintains the probe was a dead end.

The review panel highlighted one local FBI report generated from the investigation that said Abdulaziz and Anoud al-Hijji, the prominent Saudi couple who “fled” their home, had “many connections” to “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.”

But: “The FBI told the Review Commission that the communication was ‘poorly written’ and wholly unsubstantiated,” the panel noted in its 128-page report. “When questioned later by others in the FBI, the special agent who wrote (it) was unable to provide any basis for the contents of the document or explain why he wrote it as he did.”

How strange. Yet panelists did not interview the unidentified agent for themselves. They just accepted headquarters’ impeachment of his work.

The panel’s report also doesn’t explain why visitor security logs for the gated Sarasota community and photos of license tags matched vehicles driven by the hijackers, including 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta.

Former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham, who in 2002 chaired the congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11, maintains the FBI is covering up a Saudi support cell in Sarasota for the hijackers. He says the al-Hijjis’ “urgent” pre-9/11 exit suggests “someone may have tipped them off” about the coming attacks.

Graham has been working with a 14-member group in Congress to urge President Obama to declassify 28 pages of the final report of his inquiry which were originally redacted, wholesale, by President George W. Bush.

“The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11, and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier,” he said, adding, “I am speaking of the kingdom,” or government, of Saudi Arabia, not just wealthy individual Saudi donors.

Sources who have read the censored Saudi section say it cites CIA and FBI case files that directly implicate officials of the Saudi Embassy in Washington and its consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks — which, if true, would make 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war by a foreign government. The section allegedly identifies high-level Saudi officials and intelligence agents by name, and details their financial transactions and other dealings with the San Diego hijackers. It zeroes in on the Islamic Affairs Department of the Saudi Embassy, among other Saudi entities.

The review commission, however, concludes there is “no evidence” that any Saudi official provided assistance to the hijackers, even though the panel failed to interview Graham or his two key investigators — former Justice Department attorney Dana Lesemann and FBI investigator Michael Jacobson — who ran down FBI leads tying Saudi officials to the San Diego hijackers and documented their findings in the 28 pages.

Graham smells a rat: “This is a pervasive pattern of covering up the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 by all of the agencies of the federal government which have access to information that might illuminate Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11.”

If the 9/11 attacks were indeed orchestrated by Saudi Arabia, then it’s not a stretch to ask who else may have been involved or aware of it ahead of time considering the extremely close relationship between the U.S. and the desert monarchy. The apparent cover-up makes everything look even more suspicious.

Oh, and in the event that the New York Post isn’t sophisticated enough for you, this was also covered the by the New York Times in the article, Florida Ex-Senator Pursues Claims of Saudi Ties to Sept. 11 Attacks. Here’s an excerpt:

“One thing that irritates me is that the F.B.I. has gone beyond just covering up, trying to avoid disclosure, into what I call aggressive deception,” Mr. Graham said during an interview in a family office in this Miami suburb, which rose on what was a sprawling dairy farm operated by Mr. Graham’s father, also political leader in Florida.

“Conspiracy theory” indeed.

  1. ONE of the techniques these sociopaths are using on Americans is this method:
    “”Reverse Blockade: emphatically insisting upon something which is the opposite of the truth blocks the average person’s mind from perceiving the truth. In accordance with the dictates of healthy common sense, he starts searching for meaning in the “golden mean” between truth and its opposite, winding up with some satisfactory counterfeit. People who think like this do not realize that this effect is precisely the intent of the person who subjects them to this method.”
    Political Ponerology by Andrew M. Lobaczewski Page 104,”

    Another METHOD is to not make sense when you speak, this technique is described HERE
    http://www.lermanet.com/scientology/confusion-technique2.htm

    BOTH techniques (and others) are used by Scientology to make its members into ‘believers’ AND by the Neo-Cons.

  2. Phucking PT cruiser

  3. In what ways did Saudi Arabia benefit from the attacks on 9/11?

    • Michael Krieger

      Well for one thing, it was used as an excuse for getting rid of a regional rival in Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, as I alluded to in the post.

      Second, the launching of the never ending “war on terror” provides the U.S. with the perfect excuse to do whatever it wants, whenever it wants in that key region. Naturally this works to the advantage of the Saudis being such close allies that the U.S. government has sworn to protect.

  4. It’s more likely Saudi Arabia was used for convenience and plausible deniability. Bush is in office and the neocons are in power. Who do they call to help them out? The Saudi’s.,who the Bush family was has been buddy-buddy with for decades. All they did was provide plausible cover stories and 19 patsy camel jockeys. How hard is it to get 19 guys from your kingdom with below average intelligence to the USA when your offering all expenses paid including women, booze and whatever they need? It was all just for show anyway.

    Not one of the 19 camel jockey’s had a thing to do with bringing those buildings down and launching the endless war on the people of this planet. They just provide cover for the real story.

  6. 9-11 Commission report continued the cover up – just one example:

    FBI Agent who investigated Basnan;

    “When asked whether there were any other 9/11 leads he found interesting, ________stated that one interesting fact is that Osama Basnan’s_________________________was in phone and e-mail contact with Ramzi Binalshibh in September 2000.

    Zelikow to Saudi’s in prep for interviews:

    “Philip Zelikow began with an overview of the Commission’s work and asked questions on the Kingdom’s willingness and capacity to fight terrorism, both before and after September 11 2001.”

    “Nizar expressed disbelief about the allegations regarding Princess Haifa, noting that it was preposterous that she was involved in terrorism. Zelikow expressed understanding of this position and explained that the interest was primarily due to the unclear role of Osama Bassnan – if the Commission could learn more about his role, everything could be put in a clearer perspective.”
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/20556754/MFR-NARA-NA-Saudi-Arabia-Madani-Nizar-10-15-03-01186

    9-11 commission noting that they were lied to by Basnan:

    “The interview failed to yield any new information of note. Instead, in the writer’s opinion, it established beyond cavil the witness’ utter lack of credibility on virtually every material subject.”
    http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-01193.pdf

    How the 9-11 commission report reported on this(in a footnote in the back of their report):

    “Even after the last application was rejected, Binalshibh sought ways to get a visa, such as by marrying a U.S. citizen. He corresponded by email with a woman in California, but Atta told him to discontinue this effort.”- footnote 52 page 536/585
    http://govinfo.library.unt.edu/911/report/911Report.pdf

    The “woman in California” the 9-11 whitewash report fails to mention is Osama Basnans’ wife.

    According to court documents I have accessed, Basnans wife, Magda Ibrahim Dweikat, has a history of engaging in sham marriages, in order to procure welfare benefits from the American taxpayer….

    To be specific Court documents state the following…

    “Approximately sixteen months after Dweikat’s and Basnan’s entry into the United States, on November 6, 1997, Michael Andrew Mason, a U.S. citizen, executed INS Form I-130 “Petition for Alien Relative,” indicating that Dweikat was his wife. The Form I-130 was accompanied by a copy of a marriage certificate from the Commonwealth of Virginia which indicated that Mason and Dweikat were married on October 20, 1997.”
    https://ecf.casd.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/qrySummary.pl?49232

    Both Basnan and his wife are convicted felons and were given a $100 fine (which was waived) and left the county. Hosting parties for the Blind Sheik, supporting Bin Laden, funneling money from Bandar to the hijackers, engaging in visa fraud to try and get other 9-11 hijackers into the country and Basnan is fined $100, which he doesn’t have to pay, and is protected because of his Saudi Intelligence ties, while Binalshibh gets tortured for twelve years. These are facts.

    Mr. Zelikow:

    “Those involved in the preparation of the famous 28 pages joined the staff of the 9/11 Commission and participated in the follow-up investigation of all the leads that had been developed earlier,” he said Wednesday. “In doing so, they were aided by a larger team with more members, more powers and for the first time actually conducted interviews of relevant people both in this country and in Saudi Arabia.”

    “And what we found is reflected in the commission report,” he said.

    Time will tell on the traitors.

  7. Re: Missing (not mentioned) elements that may be related (being ignored?):

    There are no coincidences.

  8. ok we made a mistake with the afghan and the iraqi but man those guys would not get with the brookings chatham house programme.
    sure saudi did it i would say russia and iran and syria and libya 2.
    qatar in fact all those countries near israel did it all of them.
    bob graham is a big friend of aipac and you can be assured israel will help bob get this important information out.
    people make out that the saudi are dumb as rocks and could not handle the logistics of a norad fbi,cia pentagon take down.
    far from it those saudi guys are scientists at this stuff.
    i have read many mossad reports that provide proofs of the power of the saudi mind.
    oded yinon will soon be real folks

  9. And to make matters even more disturbing, our friend Kathleen Harris was a co-owner of the flight school that trained the hijackers.
