Political pressure mounting to declassify documents showing Saudi complicity in attacks
On Sunday Bob Graham, the former chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and co-chair of the bipartisan joint congressional inquiry into the 9/11 attacks, told CBS News he believes Saudi Arabia was behind the September 11, 2001, attacks. Information on the role played by the Saudis is said to be included in the classified “missing 28 pages” excised from the 838 pages of the Joint Inquiry report.
While the report may implicate the Saudis, it is unlikely additional information revealing the role the United States played in the attacks will be released to the public.
6. After 9/11, former FBI director Louis Freeh, whose agency failed to stop Al Qaeda-attributed terrorism from 1993 to 2001, became the personal attorney for Tenet’s dubious cohort, Prince Bandar. Sometimes called “Bandar Bush” for his close relationship to the Bush family, Bandar was the Saudi intelligence director from 2005 to 2015.
19. After 9/11, it became clear that Saudi officials were supporting terrorism. For example, in the case of a would-be “underwear bomber,” it was revealed that the suspect was working for the CIA and Saudi intelligence.
