New evidence links Saudi Arabia to 9/11 hijackers: Graham
Source: St. Petersburg Timest

SARASOTA Weeks after terrorists brought down the World Trade Center, FBI agents swarmed into a Sarasota gated community to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a wealthy young Saudi couple who apparently had ties to some of the hijackers.

Yet until a Fort Lauderdale website reported the news this week, no mention of the couple has ever appeared publicly not in the Sept. 11 commission report, nor in FBI briefings to congressional investigators, former Florida Sen. Bob Graham said Friday.

Graham called on President Barack Obama to reopen the case.

"This is the most important thing about 9/11 to surface in the last seven or eight years,'' Graham told the St. Petersburg Times. "It's very important for the White House to take control of this situation. The key umbrella question is: What was the full extent of Saudi involvement prior to 9/11 and why did the U.S. administration cover this up?''

Bob Graham wants Obama to reopen this ... Bush and Cheney were traitors and criminals! Everyone should read the whole story.

1. I want to know specifically why Bush went to Sarasota. Too much of a coincidence.

6. Or how bush said that he had already seen the 1st plane
..... hit the WTC before he went into the classroom on t.v. even though the 1st broadcast
of the plane hitting the WTC wasn't until AFTER he was in the classroom or that Marvin
Bush's company had the security contract w/ the WTC & United Airlines or that H.W. Bush
was having a meeting w/ bin Laden family member on 9/11 or that Dick Cheney was running
war games of simulated hijacked planes flying into buildings on the morning of 9/11/01 .....


One time it might be a coincidence

two times it might be a statistical out layer

3 times :bounce:

29. Look at the photos of the collapse you'll see explosions poping below the collapsing wave
In the movie WTC by Oliver Stone the police and fire men constantly are hearing explosions just like the reporters were saying on that day! Even the Firemen that made it out say it looked like a demolition to them!

20. I Didn't Believe It When I Watched The Buildings Fall On TV On That Day.......
and every day since I believe the story they are feeding us less and less. My feeling is that we are still being brainwashed by the MSM to believe that the story they are telling is the true story. That's why we're seeing all this hub hub on this the 10th anniversary of the event. If you ask most American's how many buildings fell that day - they will say two. Most American's do not know about Building 7 and never even seen footage of it falling. I've asked many people that question through the years and only one knew the answer. I tell people to Google Building 7 and then I tell them to Google "building implosions" and watch some videos and then look again at the videos of the towers falling.

Call me a conspiracy theorist. Say that my tinfoil hat is on too tight. But I believe what I believe.

32. Follow the money. Huge insurance payoff to owners of WTC. Huge
spike in put options volume on United and American in the 3 days before 9-11.

23. And he declared Marshall Law
On Sept 10th while in Fl. I also don't believe that fire can take down a steel grid let alone 3 all in the same day. 9/11 is deeper than it appears. While viewing all the hoopla this weekend, try and find airplane seats. Out of 800 seats or more, there are no seats pictured anywhere. I've asked some to provide some links as to where to view these, but as of yet no one has come out. I guess they're not important in this puzzle. No reconstructions either. They didn't all burn up. That would be impossible. It would be like fire taking down a steel and concrete building in less that 2 hours, and nobody would believe....Oh wait!. LOL! Here's another view of the Pentagon. You would think our own government would have given us more video of the attack. I don't know if this is a plane, I don't think it is. A plane never should have penetrated 3 rings of the Pentagon.

26. Classic left wing conspiracy theory...it was actually
The Pet Goat

The story gained notoriety in 2001 after U.S. President George W. Bush continued reading the book with an elementary school class for seven minutes after being informed of the September 11 attacks.

3. Why should anyone be surprized
most of the hijackers were Saudis
money transfers have been reported a long time ago
bush friends and business partners with the bin Ladens
many intimate pictures of bush and the prince
planes grounded and the Saudis get to fly home

follow the money and oil and you will find a bush at that point

21. Graham says he didn't know...
and he was a Senator on the investigating committee. It seems to me that it would take some clout to get the FBI to withhold evidence of the phone calls and run-away Saudi's connections. Simply being embarrassed doesn't seem enough.

22. Here's a st pete times link to after 911 flights....
http://www.sptimes.com/2004/06/09/Tampabay/TIA_now_veri...

The men, one of them thought to be a member of the Saudi royal family, were accompanied by a former FBI agent and a former Tampa police officer on the flight to Lexington, Ky.

The Saudis then took another flight out of the country. The two ex-officers returned to TIA a few hours later on the same plane.

For nearly three years, White House, aviation and law enforcement officials have insisted the flight never took place and have denied published reports and widespread Internet speculation about its purpose.

But now, at the request of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks, TIA officials have confirmed that the flight did take place and have supplied details.

28. Hijackers were trained by U.S. military...
Sept. 15 U.S. military sources have given the FBI information that suggests five of the alleged hijackers of the planes that were used in Tuesdays terror attacks received training at secure U.S. military installations in the 1990s.

THREE OF THE alleged hijackers listed their address on drivers licenses and car registrations as the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla.known as the Cradle of U.S. Navy Aviation, according to a high-ranking U.S. Navy source.

Another of the alleged hijackers may have been trained in strategy and tactics at the Air War College in Montgomery, Ala., said another high-ranking Pentagon official. The fifth man may have received language instruction at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Tex. Both were former Saudi Air Force pilots who had come to the United States, according to the Pentagon source.

But there are slight discrepancies between the military training records and the official FBI list of suspected hijackerseither in the spellings of their names or with their birthdates. One military source said it is possible that the hijackers may have stolen the identities of the foreign nationals who studied at the U.S. installations.

The five men were on a list of 19 people identified as hijackers by the FBI on Friday. The three foreign nationals training in Pensacola appear to be Saeed Alghamdi and Ahmad Alnami, who were among the four men who allegedly commandeered United Airlines Flight 93. That flight crashed into rural Pennsylvania. The third man who may have trained in Pensacola, Ahmed Alghamdi, allegedly helped highjack United Airlines Flight 75, which hit the south tower of the World Trade Center.

Military records show that the three used as their address 10 Radford Boulevard, a base roadway on which residences for foreign-military flight trainees are located. In March 1997, Saeed Alghamdi listed the address to register a 1998 Oldsmobile; five months later he used it again to register a second vehicle, a late model Buick. Drivers licenses thought to have been issued to the other two suspects in 1996 and 1998 list the barracks as their residences.

30. "the administration...could not run the risk of irritating the Saudis"
Edited on Sat Sep-10-11 09:45 PM by wordpix
so did not pursue this couple who left their FL home so quickly?

Talk about appeasing the "evildoers" and not protecting the country...

snip "Graham said he did not know why the FBI kept information about the Sarasota couple close to the vest. But he has a theory:

"The administration was so focused on avoiding a second attack that they decided they could not run the risk of irritating the Saudis and this was the results of that.''

34. At what point does the evidence just becoming overwhelming
That our own government at the very least allowed an attack on 9/11. At worst some portion of our own government committed an act of treason against the American people.

The constant lying and covering up only to be exposed, and a new lie put into place. At what point do we open our eyes and finally see. At what point do we stop listening to the lies and demand the truth?
