Current and former members of Congress, U.S. officials, 9/11 Commissioners and the families of the attack's victims want 28 top-secret pages of a congressional report released. Bob Graham, the former Florida governor, Democratic U.S. Senator and onetime chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, says the key section of a top secret report he helped author should be declassified to shed light on possible Saudi support for some of the 9/11 hijackers. Graham was co-chair of Congress' bipartisan "Joint Inquiry" into intelligence failures surrounding the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, that issued the report in 2003. Graham speaks to Steve Kroft for 60 Minutes report to be broadcast Sunday, April 10 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.Graham and his Joint Inquiry co-chair in the House, former Representative Porter Goss (R-FL) -- who went on to be director of the CIA -- say the 28 pages were excised from their report by the Bush Administration in the interest of national security. Graham wouldn't discuss the classified contents, but says the 28 pages outline a network of people he believes supported hijackers in the U.S. He tells Kroft he believes the hijackers were "substantially" supported by Saudi Arabia. Asked if the support was from government, rich people or charities, the former senator replies, "all of the above."
"I think its implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn't speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many didn't have a high school education, could have carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States," says Graham. In addition to Graham and Goss, Kroft also speaks to former 9/11 Commission members U.S. Sen. Bob Kerrey and former Navy Secretary John Lehman; lawyers for family members of attack victims suing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; and to Tim Roemer, former Democratic U.S. Representative from Indiana who was the only person to serve on both Congress' Joint Inquiry and the 9/11 Commission. All of the former U.S. officials have read the redacted pages. Roemer says it's time to let everyone know what's in the top secret documents. "Look, the Saudis have even said they're for declassifying it. We should declassify it," he tells Kroft. "Is it sensitive...a bit of a can of worms or some snakes crawling out of there? Yes," says Roemer.
FBI 2002 Investigation of Terror Imam Anwar al-Awlaki in San Diego CA Links to FBI 2002 Investigation of Sarasota Saudi Family and 9/11 Hijackers. The FBI 2002 investigation of Terror Imam Anwar al-Awlaki appears to link to the FBI 2002 Investigation of the Sarasota Saudi Family and 9/11 Hijackers, information on both investigations were withheld by the FBI from the public and 9/11 Commission. The Sarasota Saudi family cover up goes far beyond the suppression of the crucial 28-page chapter from the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11, concerning Saudi support for the 9/11 hijackers, the concealment of which has continued under the Obama Administration to this day. During 2002 there was an investigation by the Bureau of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) that I initiated in Sarasota into a network of Muslim men in the used car business directly linked to convicted terrorist supporter Sami al-Arian, who were sending vehicles to the Middle East for resale, this all happened BEFORE Sami Al-Arain was arrested on February 20th, 2003 and appears to have links to the ongoing grand jury investigation focusing on a Herndon, Va.,-based organization called the International Institute of Islamic Thought, in Alexandria, Va., Eastern District of Virginia.
The Tampa FBI is stonewalling the Sarasota Saudi Family and Saudi Gov Connection to the 9/11 terror attack because it all links directly to Operation Green Quest and Saudi Arabia funded think tanks IIIT and SAAR in Herndon VA. To understand why the FBI is withholding evidence of the involvement of the Sarasota Saudi Family and many others to the 9/11 Hijackers while they were in Sarasota Fl, one has to step back and look at the much bigger and broader picture involving Saudi Arabia. Terror Imam Anwar al-Awlaki, Sami al-Arian, Tarik Hamdi and Ziyad Khaleel (roommate of Imam Muneer Arafat) were all subject to the Customs investigation into money laundering called “Operation Greenquest”. Sami al-Arian refused, repeatedly, to testify before the ongoing grand jury investigation focusing on the Herndon, Va.,-based organization called the International Institute of Islamic Thought and the SAAR Foundation, in Alexandria, Va., Eastern District of Virginia, al-Arian claimed “the guys” would kill him and his family.
PENTTBOMB Investigation: The Miami Herald Media Co. (The Mcclatchy Company 30 daily newspapers) and the Herald-Tribune Media Group are urging a federal judge to make the FBI disclose details of its long-running Sarasota 9/11 investigation that took place in 2002. The two media companies want to be heard in an existing federal lawsuit against the agency by an independent news gathering organization in Fort Lauderdale, Broward Bulldog. The FBI documents could shed light on the alleged interactions of a high-echelon Saudi family — living in Sarasota’s Prestancia neighborhood just before the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on 9/11/2001 — and three hijacker pilots who trained in Venice about the same time. The newspapers are seeking to persuade a federal judge that an FBI assertion of privacy interests is outweighed by the public’s need to know what happened. The case is in US District Court Southern District of Florida case number 0:12-cv-61735-WJZ William J. Zloch, presiding.
There was a parallel investigation into a terrorist funding support network in Sarasota Fl during 2002 by ICE, (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) the Sarasota Police Department Intel Division and the Sarasota Sheriff Department with Detectives who serve on the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force running alongside the FBI investigation of the Sarasota Saudi family and their links to the 9/11 hijackers. The FBI took over the ICE investigation in late 2003 when it linked to terrorism. It is no coincidence that Mohamed Atta and his 9/11 Al-Qaeda hijack pals just happened to select the Sarasota Fl area as their base of operations during the summer of 2000 and into 2001. It is no coincidence that Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat shows up at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton in the spring of 2000 and into 2003. Sarasota FBI Special Agent Thomas R. Baugher, who I met on several occasions at the Sarasota Police Department Intel Division during 2002 and 2003, told me that there are "Never Any Coincidences in Terrorism".
It is no coincidence that Sarasota Saudi Abdulaziz al-Hijji, terrorist Wissam Hammoud and Al-Qaeda terrorist Adnan el-Shukrijumah played soccer at the local Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton during 2000 and into 2001. It is no coincidence that Abdulaziz al-Hijji was visited multiple times from the summer of 2000 and into 2001 by Mohamed Atta, Waleed al-Shehri and other 9/11 Al-Qaeda hijack pals at 4224 Escondito Circle in Sarasota Fl. 9/11 hijacker Waleed al-Shehri didn’t arrived in the United States until April 23rd 2001 on a tourist visa. Sarasota Fl was Terror Central from the summer of 2000 and into 2001.
The House Homeland Security Committee initiated a 2002 investigation into the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and whether he was an overlooked player in the terrorist attacks of 9/11; the 3-page letter from committee chairman Representative Peter King (R-New York) to Attorney General Eric Holder argues that 14 years after the worst terrorist attack on the United States, the full story of 9/11 has not been told. The 3-page letter from committee chairman Representative Peter King (R-New York)says the committee is also seeking “files, reports, analysis, assessments, memorandum, notes and presentation in all forms” that are related to long-closed FBI investigations of Anwar al-Awlaki in 1999 and in 2002. In the 1999 and the 2002 cases, the San Diego terrorism task force was investigating an alleged link between al-Awlaki, Usama bin Laden and a “known procurement agent named Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa…(who) had previously purchased a satellite phone for (Osama bin Laden) for use in the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Africa.” Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa was the roommate of Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat when they both lived in the St Louis MO area, see news article below.
