9/11 connection remains cloaked in government secrecy, breeding suspicion of Saudi role in terror attacks

9/11 connection remains cloaked in government secrecy, breeding suspicion of Saudi role in terror attacks thumbnail

The facts and the treatment of former Sarasota, Fla., residents Abdulaziz and Anoud al-Hijji are extreme but not unique. Saudi Arabian born, raised in the fringes of palace aristocracy, Abdulaziz al-Hijji and his family had lived for over a decade in a suburban home.

In the hours after 9/11, Sarasota law enforcement was notified by al-Hijji’s neighbors that the couple had abruptly moved out of their home two weeks before the terrorist attacks – leaving behind their cars, clothes, furniture and food on the table.

A subsequent investigation of the al-Hijji’s home by a state and local law enforcement anti-terrorism task force and the FBI, confirmed that the family appeared to have “fled” their home shortly before the attack with a sense of urgency. When it was ascertained that three of the four 9/11 hijack pilots had trained at an airport near Sarasota, suspicions arose that al-Hijji or members of his family had been a facilitator of the tragedy.

The FBI Tampa field office opened an investigation, which appears to have lasted for about two years. Among other things, agents reportedly obtained evidence that some 9/11 hijackers had visited al-Hijji’s home.

But the FBI kept its Sarasota investigation secret for a decade. It didn’t inform Congress’ Joint Inquiry into the attacks, which I co-chaired. Nor did the FBI tell the subsequent 9/11 Commission about it.

Irish author Anthony Summers stumbled onto the relationship between the pilots and the al-Hijji family while in Sarasota researching a book on 9/11 titled “The Eleventh Day.” He joined forces with Dan Christensen, founder of the online Florida Bulldog.

Together, Christensen and Summers confirmed and published news reports revealing that the FBI had conducted an extensive investigation of the Saudi family’s flight from Sarasota. The FBI reacted the next day, admitting it had investigated the family but also vehemently claiming it had found “no connection” between the family and the hijackers.

The Bulldog then made numerous attempts to gain access to the FBI’s records of its investigation. They all proved fruitless. So, on September 5, 2012, the Bulldog filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit in the United States federal court for the Southern District of Florida.

In response to the suit, the FBI initially claimed it could not find a single record of its Sarasota investigation. As the lawsuit progressed, the FBI changed its story and revealed that it had found a smattering of records, including one memo which stated an FBI agent, in fact, had found “many connections” between the family and the hijackers. The record directly contradicted the FBI’s prior public statements.

Judge William Zloch, the federal district judge to whom the case was assigned, was incredulous that the FBI could not find a more complete record of this important investigation. He ordered the FBI to conduct an additional thorough search. He specifically directed the FBI to scour its Tampa Field Office for any records connected to the 9/11 attacks.

The FBI obeyed that judicial directive and then sheepishly reported back that it had located more than 80,000 pages of 9/11 records. It also claimed this entire trove of 9/11 evidence was classified and should never be disclosed to the public.

Judge Zloch ordered the records produced to him promptly so that he could see what the FBI was shielding from public view and decide for himself whether the records should remain sealed.

That was in the spring of 2014. Five years later, the Bulldog is still waiting to hear from Judge Zloch and the nation continues to wonder whether Saudi Arabia aided the 9/11 hijackers.

During this five-year period, the United States has treated the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a close ally. The U.S. has provided the capability for the Kingdom to inflict on Yemen what has been described as 2019’s world’s most heinous human rights disaster and virtually ignore the October 2, 2018, chain saw butcher at the Istanbul Turkey Saudi consulate of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist in exile in the United States who reported for the Washington Post.

If in those five years, the secluded Sarasota information had become public and proven that Saudi Arabia was a 9/11 co-conspirator, these and other horrors possibly would not have occurred.

At least America would have had evidence of the character and reliability of the Kingdom.

Former Gov. Bob Graham, a Democrat, represented Florida in the U.S. Senate 1987-2005. He was the the former head of the Senate Intelligence Committee and co-chairman of the joint congressional inquiry into U.S. intelligence gathering surrounding the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    The attack on 9/11 was designed to provoke a reaction. Part of that reaction was the beginning of the invasion of 7 countries critical to the world’s oil supply. The domestic reaction was the permanent scrapping of the Bill of Rights. Home Land Security grow into an enormous operation and purchased enough ammunition to kill every man woman and child in the United States.
    The Saudis were given a pass and Saudi nationals were flown out of the country while air travel for everyone else was grounded.

    The attack on New York served the same purpose as the Gulf of Tonkin incident. It gave legitimacy to horrific illegal war.

    While I agree that several items on the list gives me the creeps as well (diversity, equality, human rights), the solitairy British alternative Antius voted for, is not a iota better than what the EU has on offer, as a US vassal.

    My hope and expectation is that the EU will gradually move to the right under the influence of populism (“Europe of the Fatherlands”) where the EU superstate (in statu nascendi) is replaced by a European a la carte “super alliance” of deep cooperating states, including Russia and North-American territories. A Europe where more authoritarian states like Hungary and Russia coexist with more liberal western European states, without mutual interference, but where substantial cooperation exists on a number of fields:

    – Euro as parallel business currency (no Dollar, Deutschmark or Yuan)
    – Military alliance, with inner PBM Defense Council, deciding over nukes
    – Common market
    – Fortress Europe with license to kill wannabee invaders (after warning shots)
    – Energy policy (with opt out clause)
    – Space program

    That’s enough cooperation.

    No need for a European parliament, just a round table of national ministers (“European Council”).

    “The attack on 9/11 was designed to provoke a reaction. Part of that reaction was the beginning of the invasion of 7 countries critical to the world’s oil supply.“

    Designed by who?

    The 9/11 “mystery” is easy to solve, in a few lines, based on high school physics and common sense.

    Just take a thorough look at the many videos of the imploding WTC7 building and try to explain what you see happening, taking into account more than 2 seconds of free fall of the entire building.

    Tic-toc-tic-toc

    Got it? The entire building is resting on several dozens of steel columns that must have been knocked away at the same moment. No alternative explanation exists.

    So the building was wired for demolition. The next point to make is that is impossible to wire a building for demolition, without security and hence owner to know about it. Who was the owner? A (((Larry Silverstein))), who is politically well connected, both within the US as well as with Israel, who had bought the WTC complex a few weeks before 9/11, buildings that were worthless anyway because of asbest, for little money.

    There you have it, 9/11 solved.

    It was an inside job, no question about it.

    “Cloggo, your populism will never be a dominant force and the reason is European women tend to be liberal. ”

    Western women have become liberal because of the ultimate betrayal by white men (boys) against them, who in the sixties began to demand free sex. A woman has a natural tendency towards children and a husband to pay for it all as a prefered strategy to sail through life. Women were forced into feminism because they no longer could rely on their men/boys.

    This is a situation that can be turned around by an agressive conservative-reactionary political movement, that designs pro-family legislation, that abolishes no-guilt divorce, inteoduces progressive taxes for poofters and wankers and that excludes childless from high office.

    I will post my comments and you can ignore or rebut them, but, if you rebut them, I expect refs to back up your claims. Please try to avoid USMSM propaganda.

    Respect is needed to allow exchange of ideas, not age slurs and other bullshit. I lived 75 years and have that experience to put current events into perspective. You have your life time to do the same. We disagree on many points, but the real world is as it is. We both have to deal with the future.

    The world may be united in trade, and even a financial system, but under one government? I really don’t believe that will happen. The next SHTF moment will destroy a lot of today’s BAU and it will reset in a totally new arrangement.

    Deafening silence.
    Total complicity US society.
    Nobody gives a f*, with some exceptions, most notably Richard Gage, Christopher Bollyn, David Griffin, Alex Jones and a few more.

    Only I AM THE LUNATIC has repeatedly and satanically gloated that 9/11 was a false flag and that he can’t wait for the next one to happen, preferably with millions of Russians killed.

    The rest minus makati, just studiously ignores the topic, quietly justified by the exceptionalist agenda, internalized by most, that any action is justified to achieve global conquest, that is to be seen as something inevitable. And after all, you can’t make an omelette without breaking an egg, as Stalin used to say.

    Any “conspiracy theory” other than the official conspiracy theory (“19 Arabs with box cutters”), is to be ignored. Nothing to be seen, walk on. Back to Trump bashing, who directly on the day of 9/11 expressed his doubts about the way the buildings imploded (demolition), which he should know as a real estate man.

    https://newspunch.com/donald-trump-911-controlled-demolition/

    Trump ON the very day says he believes bombs were used:

    If Trump is still serious about “draining the swamp”, no better tool exists than opening a serious independent investigation about 9/11. It would the required kick in the kosher nuts to bring down zog.

  33. makati1 on Mon, 20th May 2019 8:01 pm 

    Cloggie, the Trumpman is powerless to do anything but bluster and tweet. Oh, he can start a tariff war or move a few military men around, but only with the support of his masters. The MIC/Wall Street/Fed runs the show in America. The White House occupant is irrelevant except to keep up the lie that America is a democracy and the serfs votes count.

    We, and anyone with two working brain cells, know that 9/11 was a false flag event supported by the MIC to increase weapons sales and profits. Now they are working on one to start a war with Iran. Too bad the warmongers are not made to be on the front line in these wars for their duration. I bet there would be a sudden breakout of peace all over the world. An afterthought: put their entire family on those ships in the Gulf. LOL

    The lesser gods like mobby hasn’t got the message yet.

    “Make no mistake” though, as Bush the lesser used to say, they may have given up on the world, they haven’t given up on Anglosphere. In perfect symmetry with Joe Stalin’s “communism in one country”, they will continue to attempt to make white America (and Britain) powerless, through sustained mass immigration from the third world in order to create a racial egalitarian color-blind mongrelized country via their most important brainwashing tool, the media.

    Until 2016, the Reps were complicit with this agenda, but not anymore. As the last demographic group on earth, naive white America has finally discovered that living in a white society is the most desirable of all (right, anonymouse?).

    For Eurasia, this development implies that real geopolitical gold can be dug up.

    In 1933, Europe was divided to the core over the Versailles situation, in the wake of WW1, a situation that the satanists who ruled (and still rule) the US behind the scenes, knew how to exploit. All that was necessary to get Europe destroyed were a few US diplomatic maneuverings to accomplish this, namely a secret understanding between the US and USSR, as well as connections with the bribed/enabled Churchill, and some fake guarantees to useful idiot Poland and finally a total oil embargo against Japan. That was enough.

    In 2019 the situation is totally reversed.

    The role of a totally divided Europe is now taken over by the US Dems-Reps standoff over race.

    Russia is connected to China (official SCO alliance). Furthermore, China has many trillions sunk in a New Silk Road Eurasian integration scheme that is closet anti-Anglo. Grassroots Europe is very uneasy about the current state of affairs and many are flirting with Russia and Eurasia, with #1 Italy, that is spearheading European resistance. And then there is the threat of no-deal Brexit which would imply Britain to become a US vassal rather than a European province.

    Now let’s sum things up and map 1933 onto 2019:

    Europe-1933 = USA-2019
    USA-1933 = China-2019
    USSR-1933 = Russia-2019
    Japan-1933 = Britain-2019
    Italy-1933 = Canada-2019

    GDP 1933
    Allies 56%
    Axis 22%

    GDP 2019 PPP

    Eurasia:
    China 25T
    EU 22T – 3T UK = 19T
    Russia 4T
    Japan, Korea neutral
    Total 48T

    Anglos
    USA 20T
    Britain 3T
    Canada 2T
    Australia NZ 1.5T
    Total 26T

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_GDP_(PPP)

    See? The WW3 cards are not very favorable for the Anglos in 2019 as compared to 1933.. On top of that the US are divided to the core over race. Additionally China and Russia can take far more casualties than the Anglos as the former are real nations of 1000 years or older, in contrast to Anglo “nations of immigrants” (minus Britain).

  39. makati1 on Mon, 20th May 2019 8:56 pm 

    Good synopsis of the current situation, Cloggie. I mostly agree. Pure bred Anglos are a very small minority in the world today and that percentage will continue to shrink along with its power to do anything. Interracial marriage/sex will eventually erase pure Anglos from the earth. Permanent tans will be the norm.

    White/Anglos 16%
    Other 84%

    http://www.sciencechatforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=16165

    Those are 2010 numbers. I am sure that the White percentage is even smaller today.

When my mujahedin were victorious and the Russians were driven out, differences started (between the guerrilla movements) so I returned to road construction in Taif and Abha. I brought back the equipment I had used to build tunnels and roads for the mujahedin in Afghanistan. Yes, I helped some of my comrades to come here to Sudan after the war.’

    How many? Osama Bin Laden shakes his head. ‘I don’t want to say. But they are here now with me, they are working right here, building this road to Port Sudan.’ I told him that Bosnian Muslim fighters in the Bosnian town of Travnik had mentioned his name to me. ‘I feel the same about Bosnia,’ he said. ‘But the situation there does not provide the same opportunities as Afghanistan.

    “Tesla boss Elon Musk warns company will run out of money in 10 months unless it curbs spending”

    Musk has been a quasi-Ponzi from the beginning but he has achieved some remarkable results. I don’t care for the guy myself because he is a cocky wealthy guy who thinks he is a god. He is also an ignorant techno optimist. I dislike the Fake Green Tesla movement of wealthy liberal greens who think EV’s are green. They are vital to a transformation and could be useful to further renewable integration if combined with good human behavior. So far that is not the case.

    “I hope you are coping with the wild weather in your neighborhood. The wind patterns are weird.”

    Thanks Mak, late last night we had a small rain bomb with an inch and half from a squalline. It came hard and fast but no tornados or wind damage.

    Sounds like you were lucky Davy. Other areas had tornadoes and heavy winds from my online readings. Looking at the world with that website shows how really weird the weather is all over the world these days.

    Luckily, the Philippines is south of the Jet Stream all of the time and we have avoided the radical changes…so far. I use that site to watch for typhoons forming here and hurricanes forming in the Atlantic. The closest it gets to the Ps is Taiwan.

    “It seems in little doubt, the US along with Israel, UAE, and KSA will launch a so called ‘preemptive strike’ against Iranian nuclear infrastructure in May.”

    I disagree bob, the US and its friends there now have China and Russia to deal with. The US is now in a cold war with China. This will be one place they can get back at the US by giving Iran support. Russia has already made clear it will not stand for an Iranian vacuum in the latest Pompeo talks whatever that means. An accidental war of chicken is possible. An Israeli false flag is also possible but that could backfire if the US is blindsided. A pseudo proxy war with Iran through Syria is happening now. The Israelis are making regular incursions. This might be a more immediate flash point.

    I don’t see Trump eager to fight Iran. He is a business man and prefers deals. He likes talking probably because he like the lime light being stuck on himself as he is. Bolton is itching for war but it appears he has been set back by Trump on Venezuela and Iran. Hard to know for sure but one thing is clear the global economy will be hurt very badly by a ME war. This is a no-brainer but add to this a global economy already very sick and we get the potential for a very nasty situation. I am ratcheting up my doom meter some because of this China and Iran cold war and the deteriorating global economy. This might not end well. If these two issue could be cleared up it would go a long way to mitigating a possible hard economic recession and buying the world more time to implement its renewable efforts.

    The coming devastation, if any, will come from geopolitical an/or social turm-oil, not peak-oil or climate.

    “The coming devastation, if any, will come from geopolitical an/or social turm-oil, not peak-oil or climate.”

    More like all of the above converging in negatively reinforcing ways. These things will be nonlinear with a location based pronouncement. No place will escape but some will take the hit worse than others. What will mitigate this is good human behavior along with the right tech. If that does not happen it is just a matter of time before thresholds are breached and bifurcations begin. We appear to be locked into this end game because of more bad behavior than good but the timing is still a mystery.

    This article is not mentioning the yellow vest as a populist right wing force. It is calling them more a reactionary spontaneous grassroots phenomenon from multiple groups against the extremes of globalism and late stage capitalism.

    “The Yellow Vests Of France: Six Months Of Struggle”
    https://tinyurl.com/y29kj9ew Counterpunch.org

    “the Yellow Vests represent the first time in history that a spontaneous, self-organized social movement has ever held out for half a year in spite of repression while retaining its autonomy, resisting cooptation, bureaucratization and sectarian splits. All the while, standing up to full-scale government repression and targeted propaganda, it poses a real, human alternative to the dehumanization of society under the rule of the capitalist “market.”

    “Fortunately, in the past few weeks the League for the Rights of Man and other such humanitarian groups have at last turned out to protest police brutality while committees of artists and academics have signed petitions in support of the Yellow Vests’ struggle for democratic rights, condemning the government and media. At the same time, Yellow Vests are more and more converging with Ecologists (“End of the Month/End of the World/Same Enemy/Same Struggle” ) and feminists (women play a big role in the movement). Also with workers, many of them active as opponents of the bureaucracy in their unions. Red CGT stickers on Yellow Vests are now frequent sights at demos. Philippe Martinez, the General Secretary of the CGT, who has heretofore been sarcastic and negative about the Yellow Vests, has now been forced to admit that the cause of their rise was the failure of the unions, “a reflection of all the union deserts.” He was referring to “small and medium size businesses, retired people, poverty people, jobless people and lots of women” (the demographic of the Yellow Vests) that the unions have ignored.”
