Investigators have traced the funding for the Sept. 11 attacks to al-Qaida accounts in Pakistan, a top FBI counterterrorism official told a Senate panel Thursday. Officials did little to clarify the Saudi role in the funding.
John S. Pistole, deputy assistant director of the FBI's counterterrorism division, said that investigators have "traced the origin of the funding of 9/11 back to financial accounts in Pakistan, where high-ranking and well-known al-Qaida operatives played a major role in moving the money forward, eventually into the hands of the hijackers located in the U.S."

"Richard Newcomb, director of the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, said that some Saudi organizations provide considerable support for terrorism."
Note the PRESENT TENSE.

Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Penn., said he worried that Saudi Arabia "was being shielded for foreign policy reasons."
Once again Arlen undermines the administration from his own party (?) just to get his name in the news. The Rino strikes again.

All Americans need to read the Joint Congressional Inquiry on 9/11.
Then the lawsuit by the victims.
See the incompetnce, see the traitors.
This whole Bush admin has blood on their hands for letting 9/11 happen.
Before you go bonkers on me, read both documents.

Yes, but by being brave enough to call Bush on the mat for his double dealing with the Saudis at the expense of the American people leaves you open to that.
Any criticism of the Fearless Leader is verboten.
You should know that.
