TSB: This is pretty good evidence the US Gov knew all about 9/11 and covered it up. gwb

GWB: Maybe that's just what the Mossad wants you to think. Or the Koch brothers. Or whomever. Anyway, it's good evidence that Moussaoui has lots of time on his hands and that there's now a lawsuit that affords him an outlet for conspiracy mongering. He went to trial ten years ago, so i'm surprised he didn't speak up before now.

Did you read the 9/11 commission Report? It addressed this allegation of Saudi complicity.

TSB:according to Bob Graham, former head of Senate Intel Comm. the evidence is in the 28 redacted pages of that report. No, I didn't read it. gwb

Former Florida Senator Bob Graham, who was Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, implicates Saudi Arabia.

In a 2012 article that Graham co-wrote in The Huffington Post in 2012, he implied that Saudi Arabia played a part in 9/11:
…Sadly, those 28 pages represent only a fraction of the evidence of Saudi complicity that our government continues to shield from the public, under a flawed classification program which appears to be part of a systematic effort to protect Saudi Arabia from any real accountability for its actions.

GWB: Senator Graham and everyone else who has read (and those who wrote) the still-classified portion are free to expose that conspiracy. The Obama administration is free to declassify the 28 pages. They haven't, so I think there is no there, there.

Graham and ex-Senator Bob Kerrey have both filed affidavits in a lawsuit back in 2012, and those should be in the public domain. According to the NYT, reporting on the affidavits, the 28 pages consist of unvetted allegations about Saudi-sponsored charities with financial links to Al Qaeda, and a Saudi citizen, Omar al-Bayoumi, who had ties to two of the hijackers and also to Saudi officials.

Ex-Representative Lee Hamilton says the 9/11 Commission tried but failed to find evidence of complicity by any Saudi government official or senior Saudi. Graham and Kerrey don't refute Hamilton, they just call for more investigations.
