Secret 28 pages finally declassified. —>
In an unprecedented move, Congress finally released the secret 28 pages of a joint 9/11 inquiry report today that implicate a Saudi connection to the attack.
The pages are somewhat speculative but still point to various Saudi government officials being involved with agents who funded the attacks including Prince Bandar.
“While in the United States, some of the September 11 hijackers were in contact with, and received support or assistance from, individuals who may have be connected to the Saudi Government,” the secret pages state. “There is information, primarily from FBI sources, that at least two of those individuals were alleged by some to be Saudi intelligence officers.”
Elements of the report were blacked out for unknown reasons.

The documents go on to explain that the magnitude of Saudi involvement isn’t clear because the US government only began to “aggressively investigate” after the attack already occurred.
“In their testimony, neither CIA nor FBI witnesses were able to identify definitely the extent of Saudi support for terrorist activity globally or within the United States and the extent to which such support, if it exists, is knowing or inadvertent in nature,” the report states.
However, it does list prominent Saudis suspected of being involved with terrorism by US intelligence agencies.
Omar al-Bayoumi, whom the FBI suspected to be a Saudi intelligence officer due to a “half dozen reports,” is given a detailed summary in the newly released documents. The report starts that FBI files indicate that al-Bayoumi provided “substantial assistance” to 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, two of the five terrorists who crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon.
