Documents proving the FBI has withheld critical information from 9/11 families and the American people
The 2002 D.O.J. response to the 9/11 families’ legal team’s request for a copy of the arrest warrant of Osama Bin Laden. The DOJ responded to the request stating that for the legal team to access this information, they had to have Bin Laden sign a release form for his warrant. The 9/11 families want to know why the DOJ protected the privacy of a known terrorist leader?
The 2017 DOJ response to the 9/11 families’ legal team’s request for copies of visa records for 3 of the main 9/11 hijackers: Khalid al Mihdhar, Nawaf al Hazmi, and Salem al Hazmi. DOJ responded to the request stating the legal team had to provide obituaries/death certificates for the hijackers to obtain the documents. Why, 16 years after the 9/11 attacks, did the DOJ continue to protect the privacy of the hijackers?
Heavily redacted 2012 status report from the FBI regarding the progress of the 9/11 investigation. The most vital information provided by this document appears at the end of page 3 and beginning of page 4. It states “main subjects include Fahad al-Thumairy, Omar Ahmed al-Bayoumi, [redacted]. These subjects provided the hijackers with assistance in daily activities, including procuring living quarters, financial assistance, and assistance in obtaining flight lessons”. Who is the third redacted name who worked with two known Saudi government officials, Thumairy and Bayoumi, as they assisted the 9/11 hijackers assimilate into American life unnoticed before 9/11? The document also shows the ways the DOJ has continually prevented the 9/11 families from obtaining information regarding the people behind 9/11, through redacting and hiding key information from the families and their legal teams.
Sworn statement under oath from former FBI agent Stephen Moore regarding his time as head of the Los Angeles FBI 9/11 investigation from 2001-2008. Moore states that his investigation concluded that “diplomatic and intelligence personnel of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia knowingly provided material support to the [first] two 9/11 hijackers [who entered the U.S.] and facilitated the 9/11 plot.” The findings of the Los Angeles FBI investigation undermine the 9/11 Commission Report finding that two known Saudi officials, Thumairy and Bayoumi, did not provide assistance to the 9/11 hijackers. Why did one of the largest 9/11 FBI investigations find credible evidence implicating 2 Saudi officials, yet this evidence was ignored in the 9/11 Commission Report?
2015 FBI Review of original 2004 9/11 Commission Report. Highlighted sections from this excerpt mention two key pieces of evidence in our case. The first mentions 2 people who assisted the 9/11 hijackers based out of San Diego, al-Sadhan and al-Sudairy. These two men were later proven to be Saudi officials. The second highlighted section states that there was an additional individual tasked by al-Thumairy, a known Saudi official, to help take these two 9/11 hijackers assimilate when they were in San Diego. This section of evidence also allowed our legal team to track down the 2012 FBI report. What else was uncovered by the FBI’s follow-up 9/11 investigation from 2007-2016?
