Saudi Arabia May Be Tied to 9/11, 2 Ex-Senators Say
By ERIC LICHTBLAU, February 29, 2012



WASHINGTON — For more than a decade, questions have lingered about the possible role of the Saudi government in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, even as the royal kingdom has made itself a crucial counterterrorism partner in the eyes of American diplomats.

Now, in sworn statements that seem likely to reignite the debate, two former senators who were privy to top secret information on the Saudis’ activities say they believe that the Saudi government might have played a direct role in the terrorist attacks.

“I am convinced that there was a direct line between at least some of the terrorists who carried out the September 11th attacks and the government of Saudi Arabia,” former Senator Bob Graham, Democrat of Florida, said in an affidavit filed as part of a lawsuit brought against the Saudi government and dozens of institutions in the country by families of Sept. 11 victims and others. Mr. Graham led a joint 2002 Congressional inquiry into the attacks.

His former Senate colleague, Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, a Democrat who served on the separate 9/11 Commission, said in a sworn affidavit of his own in the case that “significant questions remain unanswered” about the role of Saudi institutions. “Evidence relating to the plausible involvement of possible Saudi government agents in the September 11th attacks has never been fully pursued,” Mr. Kerrey said.

Their affidavits, which were filed on Friday and have not previously been disclosed, are part of a multibillion-dollar lawsuit that has wound its way through federal courts since 2002. An appellate court, reversing an earlier decision, said in November that foreign nations were not immune to lawsuits under certain terrorism claims, clearing the way for parts of the Saudi case to be reheard in United States District Court in Manhattan.

Lawyers for the Saudis, who have already moved to have the affidavits thrown out of court, declined to comment on the assertions by Mr. Graham and Mr. Kerrey. “The case is in active litigation, and I can’t say anything,” said Michael K. Kellogg, a Washington lawyer for the Saudis.

Officials at the Saudi Embassy in Washington, who have emphatically denied any connection to the attacks in the past, did not respond Wednesday to requests for comment.

Senators Bob Graham and Bob Kerrey File Affirmations in Support of 9/11 Litigation Against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
By Cozen O'Connor, Mar 1, 2012; Modified: 1:00pm on Mar 1, 2012

PHILADELPHIA, March 1, 2012 — /PRNewswire/ -- Cozen O'Connor announced today that former Senators Bob Graham and Bob Kerrey, leaders of national inquiries into the September 11th attacks, provided affidavits in support of a pending application filed by Cozen O'Connor on behalf of victims of the September 11th Attacks and their families, to reinstate the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a Saudi government charity as defendants in the In Re Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001 litigation. 

In the affidavits, which were filed of record by Cozen O'Connor attorneys on Friday, February 24, 2012, both Senators express their view that further inquiry is warranted into the evidence of possible Saudi culpability for the 9/11 attacks.  The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York will hear argument on March 15 concerning the 9/11 plaintiffs' bid to draw Saudi Arabia back into the litigation.

A Statement by the 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism
 By 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism
 Posted: 10:50am on Mar 1, 2012; Modified: 10:55am on Mar 1, 2012
 
MT. PLEASANT, S.C., March 1, 2012 — FRMR SENATORS BOB GRAHAM AND BOB KERREY ENTER DECLARATIONS IN FEDERAL COURT SUPPORTING FURTHER INVESTIGATION INTO POSSIBLE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN SAUDI ARABIA, THE SAUDI HIGH COMMISSION AND THE 9/11 TERRORIST ATTACKS

MT. PLEASANT, S.C., March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism today applauded former Senators Bob Graham (FL) and Bob Kerrey (NE), who provided declarations on the families' behalf that were filed in Federal Court for the Southern District of New York strongly disagreeing with papers filed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Saudi High Commission claiming that they had been "exonerated" of any connection to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Senators, who both held leadership roles in the investigations by the U.S. government into the 9/11 attacks, urged the Court to reinstate the Kingdom and the Saudi High Commission into federal litigation (In re Terrorist Attacks) and encouraged the Court to allow a thorough investigation of any connection between the two and al Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks.

"The families and survivors of the atrocities of 9/11 have not given up hope for justice. We are determined to expose the truth," said Beverly Burnett of Bloomington, Minn., mother of Thomas E. Burnett, Jr., one of the heroes of United Flight 93. "The financiers and enablers of those who murdered our loved ones are still alive, well and capable of supporting terrorism. The trail back to them still points to Saudi Arabia."

Yea, that's because they were not allowed to be pursued.

Here is a searchable pdf of the Joint Inquiry report that had 28 pages completely censored.

http://www.fas.org/irp/congress/2002_rpt/911rept.pdf

Do a search for Bayoumi. You will find lots of interesting stuff. As you will his Saudi agent co-Hort Bassnan.

Now do a search for Thumairy.

Now put on your thinking cap and ask yourself why nothing comes up.
Thumairy was a Saudi diplomat. A higher ranking Government official than the Intelligent agents he was giving orders to.

Now use a tiny bit of common sense, and ask yourself if the reason you don't find his name in the joint inquiry is gosh...I don't know........you think he might be mentioned in those 28 pages? Think Bandar might be mentioned, or Ahmed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud? I wonder why they would be mentioned and why I am not allowed to know?

Let's keep it simple and stick with Thumairy.

The CIA knew about the terrorist meeting in Malaysia and was covering it. Mihdar and Hazmi were going and they knew that to. They even stole Mihdars passport and knew he was coming to America. They shared this info with Saudi Intelligence but NOT the FBI. So far this theory of mine is not a theory. It's all admitted. They arrive in America-Los Angelos to be exact, hardly speak English and have never been here before. But someone else has been here before. The big time Al Qaeda terrorist who was at the same meeting in Malaysia. His name is Bin Attash and was the mastermind of the USS Cole that killed 17 U.S. Sailors. He came to America on Dec 31 1999 arrived in Los Angelos. But there is no record of him getting off this flight. A Saudi Diplomat could escort him through though and get around that. Let's call this Saudi Diplomat, Fahad al Thumairy. And let's say that a couple of weeks after this meeting Hazmi and Mihdar (who BTW stay in an apartment with a guy called KSM while they were in Malaysia under surveillance) they arrive in L.A. and are taken to an apartment house that this Saudi Diplomat has several leases under his name. After a couple of weeks Saudi Agent Bayoumi, stops by the Saudi Consultant in L.A. meets Thumairy, receives his orders and meets the future hijackers, at a restaurant near the Apartment building Thumairy set them up in. And they end up with Bayoumi being their next babysitter and he gets them enrolled in flight schools and gets them ID cards and even pays their rent.

I stole this theory from the FBI Penttbom Investigation and that is just a tiny bit of what is censored in those 28 pages. Because the 19 terrorists that died were at the bottom of the Al Qaeda/Saudi totem pole. Higher up are Saudi Agents like Bassnan and Bayoumi, and higher up still are Government officials like Thumairy.

This censored FBI report shows much of what I just said.......

http://intelfiles.egoplex.com/2002-09-04-FBI-Fahad-Al-Thumairy.pdf

I can fill in most of the blanks on this page so have a good grasp of what is going on there.

Here is Thumairy's wiki page....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahad_al_Thumairy

Not very informative is it?

The 9-11 commission even had the nerve to call this guy a liar after talking to him.....

Quote:
Our general impression of Thumairy is that he was deceptive during both interviews.

The Nerve! Now, he is just one that has been protected for years, there's more. And we know who they are. And we know at the very least some of the role they played.

A Dissident:
Recall that Sen. Bob Graham comes from a powerful bloodline with ties to the Washington Post and the CIA (Operation Mockingbird). He met with the director of the ISI on the morning of the attacks, Lt. Gen. Mahmud Ahmad, who arranged for Omar Saeed Sheikh to transfer $100,000 to Mohamed Atta. Sheikh worked for British Intelligence and the ISI. The ISI is simply the Pakistani arm of the CIA.

Sen. Graham was meeting with Lt. Gen. Ahmad and Rep. Porter Goss. The two then became the chairmen of a joint congressional investigation into the attacks. Goss was a CIA operative involved in Operation 40, a covert unit of Cuban exiles and American mercenaries conducting terrorist operations against Cuba under the supervision of the CIA. It was this unit that brought assailants to Dallas. It was under the control of Richard Nixon (representing Bush-Rockefeller), George H.W Bush (representing Bush-Harriman-Rockefeller), Jack Crichton (representing Bronfman-Du Pont-Rothschild), and E. Howard Hunt. Working alongside Sen. Graham, Rep. Goss would ensure the failure of the congressional investigation.

The other "whistleblower" here is Sen. Bob Kerrey, a former CIA operative who was involved in the Phoenix Program in Vietnam. He served on the 9/11 Commission and participated in the official cover-up of these events.

Graham and Kerrey are creations of the CIA. Their identification of the Saudi Arabian government as the sponsor of the attacks is misdirection. While many Saudi agents may have been involved at an operational level, the sponsors and higher-ranking facilitators can be found in Washington and in the deepest levels of the American military-intelligence complex.

Saudi Arabia couldn't have turned off the air defense system for more than an hour and forty five minutes.
Saudi Arabia couldn't set explosives throughout the World Trade Center buildings and demolish them. The security companies and tenants were connected to the American military-intelligence and foreign policy elite.

What about the fact that all four flights were suspiciously low on passengers at a time when flights that weren't full were being canceled by the airlines, especially when their destinations were saturated, generic locations such as Los Angeles and San Francisco? These were the destinations of the planes on 9/11, and all of them were less than 25% full. The Washington Post even stated that Flight 77 was "unusually low on passengers" that morning.

If this is more than a simply bizarre coincidence, how in the world could the Saudis have arranged it?

I feel that Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have intelligence agencies that are beholden to the Illuminati powers in Virginia (CIA), Maryland (NSA), Herzylia (Mossad), and London (MI5/MI6). Frequently, these "middle eastern" spy agencies are used as "middlemen" in covert operations so that blame can be later laid at the doorstep of some "terrorist" bogeyman. Such revelations will only further fuel the fire of the "war on terror".
