Bush Administration Covered Up Saudi Gov. Involvement in 9/11

Fox News and many Republicans have tried to manufacture Benghazi scandals for over a year, but they've been silent about how President Bush censored 28 full pages of the 800-page report about 9/11.

After 9/11, the Bush administration claimed that al Qaeda, which was behind 9/11, did not receive any assistance by a foreign government.

However, Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) have recently seen the censored 9/11 report and are so shocked they are asking President Obama to declassify the entire report.

According to the New York Post, some information from the censored 28 pages has leaked out and claims that Saudi government officials helped the 9/11 terrorists financially and logistically. In the 9/11 report, the CIA calls it “incontrovertible evidence” of Saudi involvement.

In Los Angeles and San Diego, officials from Saudi Arabia reportedly met some of the future 9/11 terrorists when they landed and provided them with rooms, rent and phones. The Saudi Arabia officials allegedly set up meetings between the 9/11 hijackers and al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

More financial backing reportedly came from then-Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar and his wife in Washington D.C., who sent $130,000 to Saudi agent Osama Bassnan, the San Diego contact for the 9/11 hijackers.

Eventually, the Riggs Bank of Washington D.C. would drop the Saudis because of the cash flow to Bassnan.

Al-Awlaki reportedly worked with the Saudi Embassy and spoke at a Saudi Islamic think tank in Merrifield, Va. that was chaired by Bandar.

Awlaki fled the US on a Saudi jet about a year after 9/11, but would be killed by an US drone attack in Yemen in 2011.

The New York Post also claims that 9/11 planner Mohamed Atta and other hijackers visited a home in Sarasota, Fla. that was owned by Esam Ghazzawi, who worked as an adviser to the nephew of Saudi King Fahd. Two weeks before 9/11, the Sarasota home was abandoned as was the fancy furniture inside the house.

Then-Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) asked the FBI for the Sarasota case files, but the FBI refused. He later called the stonewalling a “coverup.”

Bill Doyle, who heads the Coalition of 9/11 Families, calls the hiding of Saudi 9/11 evidence by the Bush administration a “cover up beyond belief.”

Some of this information was featured in author Craig Unger's 2003 book “House of Bush, House of Saud,” which was widely acclaimed.

However, when the exact same information from Unger's book appeared in Michael Moore's 2004 film “Fahrenheit 911," Moore was attacked repeatedly by conservatives and Republicans. notes how ironic it is that the New York Post would even publish this Saudi-Bush article about 9/11 given the relentless attacks the paper, owned by Fox News head Rupert Murdoch, has launched against Moore.
