Ever since 2002, 28 pages from the House Intelligence Committee’s report on the September 11 terrorist attacks have been kept secret from the public. Now, these documents have finally been released, and what they have revealed is shocking.
According to The Political Insider, the Obama administration declassified the documents on Friday and Congress is expected to make them public later this evening. Those who have seen the documents say that the information in the pages lays out numerous pieces of evidence that suggest it’s possible two of the 9/11 hijackers living in California in the months leading up to the attack were receiving operational support from individuals loyal to Saudi Arabia.
The report also allegedly shows that Saudi Arabia knew that the attacks were being planned and turned a blind eye to them.
“It does not appear that any government other than the Taliban financially supported al Qaeda before 9/11, although some governments may have contained al Qaeda sympathizers who turned a blind eye to al Qaeda’s fundraising activities,” the 9/11 Commission report reads. “Saudi Arabia has long been considered the primary source of al Qaeda funding, but we have found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization. (This conclusion does not exclude the likelihood that charities with significant Saudi government sponsorship diverted funds to al Qaeda.).”
