Published June 8th, 2015 With AFP and Reuters…Republican senator Rand Paul has joined a group of lawmakers demanding the Obama administration release a top secret report that allegedly shows Saudi Arabia directly helped to finance the September 11 attacks in New York in 2011.The Libertarian Republican from Kentucky has stated that he wants Obama to declassify 28 pages that were redacted from a 2002 US Senate report into the 9/11 attacks.
The blacked-out pages were classified under the instruction of George W. Bush, leading to speculation they confirmed Saudi involvement. Paul has said that he intends to file an amendment to a Senate bill that would call on Obama to declassify the pages, which have taken on an almost an almost mythical quality for conspiracy theorists.
A number of victims groups have said in the past that the full extent of Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the deadly attacks on September 11 has long been covered up by both the Obama and Bush administrations to protect US-Saudi relations. Earlier this year, the theory of Saudi involvement was revisited when a former operative for al Qaida, a man described as the 20th 9/11 hijacker, described prominent members of Saudi Arabia’s royal family as major donors to the terrorist network in the late 1990s, Zacaria Moussaoui, who pleaded guilty in 2005 to six terror-related charges, accused Saudi of funding al-Qaida in a sworn statement contained in a brief submitted on Tuesday as part of an ongoing civil case by the families of 9/11 victims. Moussaoui also claimed that he discussed a plan to shoot down Air Force One with a Stinger missile with a staff member at the Saudi Embassy in Washington. Former US Senator Bob Graham, the former co-chair of the Congressional inquiry, has in the past called on the US government to reopen the investigation.
One such case was after a report linking the 9/11 hijackers to a Saudi Arabian couple who lived in Sarasota Florida. Sen Bob Graham said he has no reason to doubt the news report, which said the Saudi Arabian couple abruptly abandoned their luxury home in Sarasota two weeks before the attacks, leaving behind a full refrigerator, clothes, furnishings and a new car in the driveway. Graham at the time called the Sarasota case “eerily similar” to the FBI’s failure to tell the intelligence committee about a former Saudi civil servant, Omar al-Bayoumi who supported two hijackers while they were living in San Diego. (so did Sam’s Mart Texaco owner Osama Mustafa) Bob Graham said an investigator for his committee independently unearthed the information about al-Bayoumi.
FBI Lied to Congress about Sarasota Fla Saudi Family’s Ties to 9/11 Hijackers. The FBI lied to Congress about the deep ties between a Florida Saudi family—that abruptly fled weeks before the 9/11 terrorist attacks—and the hijackers who carried out the plot, according to alarming new records uncovered by a journalism watchdog that’s led the effort to expose the government cover-up. This scandal has been circulating for years and only a Florida journalism watchdog along with a few local papers have bothered covering it, though it’s huge. It involves a Saudi family that lived in a Sarasota gated community and suspiciously fled weeks before 9/11, leaving behind three cars, food in the fridge and toys in the pool. Security officials at the gated community revealed that cars used by the 9/11 hijackers visited the family various times before the attacks, including the vehicle linked to plot leader Mohamed Atta. When local media started asking questions, the head of the Sarasota FBI office (agent Thomas Baugher) admitted that the agency investigated “suspicions surrounding” the Sarasota home but never found evidence tying the family to the terrorists, bull crap, they had detailed logs of Mohamed Atta and other 9/11 terrorists arriving at the gate house to the Sarasota Saudi family’s house in Prestancia.
FBI agents who searched the Prestancia gatehouse in Sarasota found evidence in logbooks and snapshots of license plates that vehicles used by the 9/11 hijackers, including ringleader Mohamed Atta, had visited the Abdulaziz al-Hijji home. January 7, 2015 press conference on Capitol Hill…”Where is the outrage? I want to know; that Saudi Arabia, a country, our supposed ally, not only bankrolled al-Qaeda, and the worst terrorist attack on American soil, but was also instrumental in implementing an intricate web of operatives in numerous places around the world, including right here in our own country, to carry out a complex plan of bringing the 19 hijackers here to America. To name a few places: Sarasota, Florida; San Diego, California; Herndon, Virginia; Paterson, New Jersey.” Where is the outrage, that they continue to fund terrorist organizations like ISIS, which is killing, raping, and beheading innocent people at a rapacious rate, while at the same time recruiting from here in the West for more new members? And where is the indignation, that 9/11 victims’ families and survivors have been denied the right to hold accountable in a United States court room, the people responsible for the incineration of nearly 3,000 people? We need the 114th Congress to direct President Obama to release, declassify, the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry, and we also need the 114th Congress to act swiftly, and pass JASTA into law. Our national security depends on this.
MIAMI HERALD: The U.S. House Intelligence Committee has denied a Florida congressman’s request for access to 28 classified pages from the 2002 report of Congress’ Joint Inquiry into the 9/11 terrorist attacks. SEN. GRAHAM: Let me just briefly tell the story of Sarasota. It was not until almost 10 years after 9/11 that we became aware that there was a prominent Saudi family, one member of whom had been an advisor to the Royal family, living in Sarasota. There were also three of the hijackers had done their flight training, at a small school near Sarasota. And during the period that those three were living there, they had extensive contacts with that Saudi family. Less than two weeks before 9/11, under what law enforcement described as “urgent conditions,” the Saudi family left Sarasota, and returned to Saudi Arabia, raising the question, did someone tip them off that there was an event about to occur, and it would be better that they not be in the United States? Through a press group in Florida, we’ve been trying to get released the FBI investigation that occurred, which probed the role of the family, and the hijackers. The FBI initially said, they could not respond to our Freedom of Information request because there was nothing to respond with. There were no documents relative to the investigative. Fortunately, there was a strong Federal judge, who would not accept that as truth. And he and the plaintiffs pursued, and today, 80,000 pages have been turned over by the FBI to that Federal judge, in the face of their original statement that there was no information, and that judge has, for the past several months, been reviewing the 80,000 pages, in order to make a judgment as to which of those warrant continued classification, and which can be released to the public.
9/11 Hijack Pilots Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah’s Support Network In Sarasota Fl Includes Esam Ghazzawi Abdulaziz al-Hijji and Muneer Arafat. From March of 2002 up to April of 2005 I was involved with and initiated parts off a multi Law Enforcement Agency investigation of an assortment of Muslim men of Saudi, Moroccan and Palestinian background that appeared to be a support network for the 9/11 hijackers in Sarasota Fl. This time period appears to the same time period that the Miami Herald Media Co. has joined the Herald-Tribune Media Group in urging a federal judge to make the FBI disclose details of its long-running Sarasota 9/11 investigation. FBI agent Thomas Baugher told me at one of our meetings in Sarasota at the SRQ Police Department Intel Unit ”THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES IN TERRORISM.” The two media companies want to be heard in an existing federal lawsuit against the agency by Broward Bulldog, an independent news-gathering organization in Fort Lauderdale for information of a FBI 2OO2 investigation in Sarasota Fl, see http://www.theledger.com/article/20130930/NEWS/130939973
OPERATION GREEN QUEST, SAAR NETWORK, SAUDI links to 9/11, FBI Sarasota Saudi Family Investigation in 2002, Book by John Loftus Ibid.; p. 232. The IIIT Institute’s Herndon, VA, headquarters, located at 555 Grove St., were subject of a March 20, 2002 raid, along with 19 other business and non-profit entities allegedly related to an umbrella corporation known as the SAAR Foundation, as part of a joint FBI-Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) program known as Operation Green Quest. ICE launched Greenquest, an investigation into the financing of al-Qaeda, Sami al-Arian in Tampa, and similar groups, weeks after 9/11. In June 2002, the Washington Post will headline an article, “Infighting Slows Hunt for Hidden al-Qaeda Assets.” [Washington Post, 6/18/2002]. FBI Wants Control of Greenquest – With the creation of the new Department of Homeland Security (see November 25, 2002), the FBI and its parent agency the Justice Department are given a chance to gain total control over Operation Greenquest. In March of 2002 after reviewing the origins and nature of the Muslim Brotherhood, John Loftus related a fascinating gambit in which he and private investigator Bill Warner were able to “make” many of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists in the United States. Originating in the investigation of Sami Al-Arian, prior to his arrest Thursday, February 20, 2003, the stratagem entailed buying phone cards for use by the suspected terrorist supporters. With [Professor Sami] Al Arian’s support, and financial help from the Saudis, Al Arian’s clan purchased a series of used car auto dealerships in western Florida. One of them was on land owned by Al Arian. Luxury cars from across the USA were funneled through the clan’s network to Dubai, where they were re-sold for two or three times their price by a car network run by one of Al Qaeda’s “golden chain” financiers. Older vehicles were turned into car bombs to kill American soldiers in Iraq. Two of the car bombs in Iraq have been traced through the Clan’s network through their vehicle identification (VIN) numbers.
Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel had been roommates with Imam Muneer Arafat during the time period when he was obtaining communication equipment for Osama bin-Laden. Imam Muneer Arafat came to the Islamic Society of Sarasota-Bradenton Mosque as their ‘holy man” in March of 2000, he is a member of the Kuwait Muslim Brotherhood, just a few months before Mohamed Atta and two other 9/11 Hijackers show up in nearby Nokomis Fl in June of 2000. In May of 2002, private investigator Bill Warner of Sarasota, Florida, came up with an extremely innovative method of tracking the members of the Clan’s terrorist network. PI Bill Warner then sent out an advertisement to each of them enclosing a pre-paid cell phone card. The pitch was to try our new phone company’s international call service free for ninety days, and then decide whether to become a permanent subscriber. One of the idiots in the Sarasota clan actually used our calling card. In one stroke, we had become the Muslim Brotherhood’s telephone service. As a telephone company, we lawfully purchased the phone bills of everyone our customer contacted, allegedly to recruit new customers. We used the phone bills to identify the clan’s overseas contacts. On June 18th, 2002 this information was first given to the Sarasota Police Dept and the Sarasota Sheriff’s Dept and later to the Bureau of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) which investigates money laundering.
Three Saudi Arabians have been jailed for 10 years by a Moroccan court for plotting to attack Western warships.The results were astonishing. We had the calling records of the Al Qaeda cell in Ceuta as they planned their abortive attack on shipping off Gibraltar. We could tell that every time a clan member in Tustin California called a cell phone in a Palestinian efugee camp in Jordan, a terrorist attack on Israel would take place that same day. Bill Warner assembled a nationwide map of terrorist logistical cells in America complete with their overseas telephone contacts. “The FBI typically rewrote the warrants as if they had done the investigation“. Bill Warner never received a penny of the promised million dollar ‘Rewards for Justice’ money promised by ICE in 2003 and quashed by the FBI. Bill Warner did receive $2,500 in old $100 bills from the ICE office in Bradenton Fl finally on April 29th, 2005, the FBI never paid anything even after Sarasota FBI Agent Thomas Baugher promised to match whatever ICE paid, never did, bull crap.
The FBI closed all investigations by other government agencies (US Secret Service, ICE) into the Sarasota Florida clan in 2003 just as they had closed Operation Green Quest, the Immigration Service’s attempt to trace terrorist funding of Al Arian from the Saudis. The Saudis’ “International Institute for Islamic Research (IIIR)” is banned as a known funding source for terrorism worldwide, but like the Muslim Brotherhood, it enjoys a strange immunity from the United States Department of Justice. . .Ibid.; pp. 263–265. NORTHCOM ran all of our phone numbers through their terrorist data base. “It lit up like a Christmas tree!” The agent exclaimed. NORTHCOM knew that terrorists overseas were calling American phone numbers, but had no idea who they were contacting or why they were calling. Our little telephone company had provided U.S. intelligence with a nearly complete map of every terrorist cell in the USA and abroad that called the Muslim Brotherhood for help.
