The 9/11 committee “did not know” that FBI documents were eventually declassified due to alleged links between Saudi Arabia and the terrorist attack 20 years ago.
According to its mission statement, the committee was formed to “prepare and complete account of all the circumstances surrounding the September 11th attacks.”
Now, the lawyer representing the 9/11 relatives of Saudis claims the report is incomplete.
The committee, the lawyer for the 9/11 family, said, “It should be more candid and straightforward with these people in Southern California.”
They were referring to the top two 9/11 hijackers in the United States-Nawaf Al-Hazmi and Khalid Al-Mihdhar.
They arrived in Los Angeles January 15, 2000. Neither spoke English. However, records show that they arrived in San Diego, where they took flying lessons — but failed — rented an apartment and attended the mosque. They all belong to Saudi Arabia.
As the Herald reported on Monday, the 16-page FBI file declassified on Saturday night was a major victory for the families who lost their loved ones in the attack as they worked to expose Saudi Arabia’s alleged connection with the 9/11 hijackers.
The 9/11 relative lawyer, who is also needed for the investigation, can speak out publicly.
They made this announcement during Monday’s background briefing. Tuesday was their return to New York City court to seek accommodation. Understanding American connections. Terrorist attacks.
Although the lawyers were not able to disclose the exact nature of their request, they were asked if they would seek the removal of Saudi officials based on the new document.
15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi Arabian citizens. They were all linked to al-Qaeda. On 9/11, they hijacked four aircraft, causing almost 3,000 deaths. Families that were affected by the New York City attack and became sick are also being investigated.
American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 took off from Boston Logan International Airport. They crashed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower and South Towers.
The lawyer said that at least eight Saudi officials were included in the FBI report, many of whom had “extremist views”.
