Classified documents contradict FBI on post-9/11 probe of Saudis, ex-senator says
msnbc.com ^ | March 13, 2012 | Anthony Summers and Dan Christensen

Posted on 03/13/2012 10:02:11 AM PDT by John W

Former Florida Sen. Bob Graham, who co-chaired Congress’ Joint Inquiry into the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has seen two classified FBI documents that he says are at odds with the bureau’s public statements that there was no connection between the hijackers and Saudis then living in Sarasota, Fla.

“There are significant inconsistencies between the public statements of the FBI in September and what I read in the classified documents,” Graham said.

Whether the 9/11 hijackers acted alone, or whether they had support within the U.S., remains an unanswered question -- one that began to be asked as soon as it became known that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens. It was underlined when Congress’s bipartisan inquiry released its public report in July 2003. The final 28 pages, regarding possible foreign support for the terrorists, were censored in their entirety -- on President George W. Bush’s instructions.

Damn right there was a connection, and a big coverup, apparently to protect certain Saudis. FBI said, nothing to look at here...

In this regard, Clinton, Bush and Obama are the same.

Wow!!!

FBI doesn’t like the CIA then?

B. Hussein connection must be buried and then he is rewarded with the Presidency, just like the bent one.

Washington needs to be walled off from the rest of this country. Then Hollywood can make their movie “Escape from Washington DC.”

Saudi Arabia is just one big laundromat for the dollar IMHO.

Questions...

Are the Saudis more afraid of us or Iran?

Are the Saudis wanting to have a higher price of oil or lower?

Are the Saudis wanting to have oil flowing to the United States or not?

If you believe the answer to the those questions means to prop up the United States then you believe the Kingdom is on our side. However, it’s citizens and their feelings is another matter entirely. The problem is most people aren’t smart enough to understand a difference. The other problem is a government afraid of the people that aren’t smart enough to understand the difference. The cover up if there is one isn’t to protect the Saudi’s.. it’s to protect ourselves from the people that don’t understand the difference.

Saudis should worry more about Iran than us as we are not threatening the royals and the whole house of saud.

Are the Saudis wanting to have a higher price of oil or lower?
They’d love to have a higher price for oil but are edumacated enough to understand that if the price of oil is raised too much then a recession ensues and everyone loses.

Are the Saudis wanting to have oil flowing to the United States or not?
No, they want oil to continue to flow to the countries they sell to, mainly NOT the U.S.
Are the saudis our friends? NO, simply a marriage of convience. We’d both love to divorce but can’t afford to.

The answer to all those questions means that the House of Saud wants nothing to do with bring the US to it’s knees. Therefore it isn’t a cover up of the the Saud Royal Family making enemies with us, it’s more about public perception here at home about the Saud Royal Family
