Bob Graham: 9/11 support goes to the top of Saudi government

Yahoo News | Alex Bregman | May 18, 2016

Is there a smoking gun in the 28 pages that were redacted from the congressional joint inquiry on intelligence from before and after the 9/11 attacks that links the Saudi Arabian government to the attacks? A co-chair of that inquiry, former Forida Sen. Bob Graham thinks there is one. He also says the link goes all the way to the top of the Saudi government and that the government’s funding of terrorist groups continues to this day.



Graham, who has been advocating for the release of those pages for over a decade, sat down with Yahoo News host Stephanie Sy on “Yahoo News Live” to discuss when that might happen, the Senate’s passage of a bill allowing families of 9/11 victims to sue the Saudi government and what he says are the Saudi government’s continued links to terrorism.

On the 28 pages, he said: “I think [they’re] a smoking gun. I think the linkages are so multiple and strong and reinforcing that it’s hard to come away from reading all this material and not feel that there was a support network and that support network came from Saudi Arabia.”

He said it goes beyond the pages though: “They will also open the path to other materials. There are thousands of pages of documents, which speak to the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the 19 hijackers.” He continued, “Could those 19 people have carried out a plot as complex as 9/11 while maintaining anonymity in some cases for more than a year and a half while they were in the United States without having some support?”...snip

...Does he consider the withholding of the 28 pages a cover-up? “I have used the term ‘aggressive deception.’”....snip

2. Deception?

 

And just how close was bush to the Saudis?

From what I have read, the FBI and CIA knew a lot about the hijackers. They knew they were taking flight lessons, they knew they were flying around the country and they knew when it was going to happen....

But the intelligence agencies were kept from stopping them and so they did not stop them, even if they really even did it.

5. And it continues to this day.

How Kosovo Was Turned
Into Fertile Ground for ISIS

Extremist clerics and secretive associations funded by Saudis and others
have transformed a once-tolerant Muslim society into a font of extremism.
