BREAKING: 28 Pages Show US Knew Saudis Aided 9-11 Attackers and Covered it Up

“I had to stop every couple pages and…try to rearrange my understanding of history. It challenges you to rethink everything.” – Congressman Thomas Massie describing his experience reading the 28 pages in March 2014.

“The 28 Pages” – part of an 838-page Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 – have been kept almost entirely classified since 2002.

Former Sen. Bob Graham, a co-chairman of the investigation committee and strong advocate of declassifying the information, said, “The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11 and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier.

Today the 28 pages were finally released, although many parts are still redacted. They show that Graham was right—several figures in the Saudi Arabian government provided assistance to the 9-11 hijackers from within the U.S.

There is information, primarily from FBI sources, that at least two of those individuals were alleged by some to be Saudi intelligence officers,” reads the first of 28 pages. “The Joint Inquiry’s review confirmed that the Intelligence Community also has information, much of which has yet to be independently verified, indicating that individuals associated with the Saudi Government in the United States may have other ties to al-Qa’ida and other terrorist groups.

page 6

There is “solid evidence” that Omar al-Bayoumi and Osama Basnan, both known as Saudi agents to the FBI before 9-11, provided considerable assistance to two of the hijackers–Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdar. Some of this assistance included co-signing apartment leases and helping the would-be hijackers find flight schools.

After 9-11, “the FBI discovered that al-Bayoumi had far more extensive ties to the Saudi government than previously realized.” These are detailed in the declassified 28 pages.

The report also details numerous payments from Saudi government figures, including Prince Bandar, to Basnan and his wife before to 9-11. The CIA stated that he may have received a fake passport from the Saudi government. Basnan claimed that he “did more for the hijackers than al-Bayoumi did.”

Also revealed in the declassified pages is that fact that the notorious Abu Zubaida—a Saudi Arabian national currently being held in Gitmo—had telephone numbers linking him through a U.S. corporation to Saudi ambassador Prince Bandar.

A Saudi Interior Ministry employee stayed at a Virginia hotel with a 9-11 hijacker just before the attacks, but he told the FBI he didn’t’ know them. Agents felt he was being deceptive. The Saudi then faked a seizure and departed the U.S. before further questioning.

Saudi Naval Officers were also in contact with the 9-11 hijackers, and the report details other Saudi government officials and terrorist operatives.

How is it that these various connections between Saudi government figures and suspected terrorists were not acted upon by intelligence agencies?

page 11As we approach the 15th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, it is clear that the 28 pages will indeed challenge us to rethink everything.

According to the report, the FBI never pursued connections between terrorism and Saudi Arabia before 9-11 because of that country’s status as “American ally.”

Indeed, the Wahhabist dictatorship has had a special relationship ever since U.S. Treasury Secretary signed a secret pact 41 years ago to keep dealings between the countries “strictly secret.” This is how Saudi Arabia can now hold the U.S. economy hostage by threatening to crash the dollar if Congress simply passes a bill.

As Ben Swann says, “Wouldn’t that be called terrorism?”

The fact is, Saudi Arabia has a long history as one of the biggest promoters of terrorism in the region. The monarchy follows a hardline fundamentalist branch of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism, which fuels extremist views among its adherents and has major influence over the rise of ISIS.

The 28 pages make it clear that at least several important figures in the Saudi Arabian government were instrumental in helping to carry out 9-11. Whether it was a top-down effort or something fomented by parts within the government may never be fully known.

There are other remaining questions, such as what appears to be a controlled demolition of Building 7, which housed a large cache of CIA documents. And how is it that Saudi nationals were allowed to flee the country just after 9-11, when everyone else was on lockdown?

In an interview with 60 Minutes in April, Bob Graham said, “I think it’s 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.”

    Don’t sound much like an ally to me.

      The question is, an ally to whom within the US …

  • M Green

    The Saudi component of 9/11 is a red herring. The USG and its allied in private domestic intelligence corporations accomplished 9/11 with the help of several of its allied intelligence agencies including Saudi Arabia and Israel. Indira Singh exposed the Saudi financing of 9/11 over 12 years ago through P-tech and msm hushed it up. The 9/11 Commission Report made a point of saying that the financing of 9/11 was irrelevant, in order to protect the perpetrators. The central component of 9/11 was the controlled demolition of the Towers and B7 via coordinated efforts with the Air Force not the intercept the hijacked planes; and of course Larry Silverstein & Company insisting on leasing the WTC complex with a special contingency clause–one that many carriers rejected–that permitted him to own the facility in the event that an act of terrorism destroyed it completely. Silverstein provided the security company with Bush-family connections that allowed the nanothermite to be planted inconspicuously.

      METHODICAL ILLUSION by Rebekah Roth is a very interesting analysis by pilots and flight attendants of obvious errors in the official story. [The first half of the book is a novel to set the stage for the fantastic conclusions–with photos of stockpiled explosives before installation.]

      • John Blithe

        Rebekah Roth has been exposed by Kurt Richard Haskell as a possible government agent tasked with disinformation.

        • olde reb

          The evidence that the government and the CIA spread disinformation is legion. Start with Robert Stennett and DAY OF DECEIT that uses government documents to prove FDR and Wall Street established an agenda to provoke Pearl Harbor. All Japanese codes had been easily broken. Or perhaps DEVILS CHESSBOARD that concludes Allen Dulles used Wall Street funding to create the CIA to thwart government programs. Or Terry Reed’s details of illegal drug running and arms shipments by the CIA in COMPROMISED. This was confirmed by Oliver North in sworn testimony before Congress.

    it is sad the West must exterminate the Middle East in order to survive the inevitable emerging power shifting towards the East

  • Vicky Palfreyman

    The Saudi’s are not allies with USA at all. They are allies with the Bush’s and the Clintons and the small band of absurdly rich that puppet governments of the world, and control the worlds banking and financial systems.

  • disgust

    M Green u are absolutely right! I want to add this Video which shows Indira Singhs and some other Insiders talking about ur topics and additionally talking about the Deal between Marsh&McLennan and Silverstream! The first “Plane” hit the 95 Floor where Marsh&McLennan chief staff was just discussing untracable Money transactions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3xgjxJwedA

    • Steve Rusk

      Excellent, Thanks for posting it.

  • Terje Ringdalen

    This were allready know. the reason why it was kept hidden was because the financial backer of the 9/11 attack were the son of (at the time) Usa’s biggest oil supplier.

    • WOuld be very interested to know where I can find the source of this information? Most folks memories cannot recall 1 day ago, much less fifteen years ago!

  • marlene

    Bush needs to share a jail cell with Obama while they both wait to be punished for treason!

  • John Blithe

    I agree with M Green. Israel is actually heavily involved with 9/11 but the evidence is hardly ever discussed. Evidence of nano Thermite was found in the dust and is very likely involved with all three implosions. 9/11 was a false flag operation for the benefit of the banking and oil cartels, and for Zionism, which is pet project of the ruling class which relies on the fraudulent war on terror as a means of negating legitimate grievances of the Palestinian people who have been forced off their land at gunpoint and were slaughtered in large numbers.
