As the anniversary of 9/11 inched closer, the families of victims and first responders told Joe Biden to stay away from memorials.
One of the reasons they did not want Biden anywhere near the memorial celebrations was because he had yet to deliver on a promise, which was to release 9/11 documents.
To ensure he could get his photo-ops, Biden declassified FBI documents regarding investigations into the attack, and those documents have now been released by the FBI.
The documents were released, but the 16-page document had more black ink than white space on it.
One of the key elements of the report, however, was the support that had been given to two of the Saudi hijackers involved in the attacks.
What was evident in the highly-redacted document is that the FBI interviewed a Saudi man in 2015 that it stated had provided “significant logistical support” to the hijackers.
This was far from the proof that family members of the victims were hoping for in linking the Saudi government to the attacks, however.
Saudi Arabia has always maintained it had no involvement whatsoever and continues to support the full declassification of all records to “end the baseless allegations against the Kingdom once and for all.”
The fact that the majority of the hijackers were born in Saudi Arabia, however, continues to weigh heavily in the arguments supporting this belief.
Jim Kreindler, a lawyer for the victims’ relatives, hinted at this.
He stated, “The findings and conclusions in this FBI investigation validate the arguments we have made in the litigation regarding the Saudi government’s responsibility for the 9/11 attacks.
“This document, together with the public evidence gathered to date, provides a blueprint for how (al Qaeda) operated inside the US with the active, knowing support of the Saudi government.”
The 9/11 Commission report backed up the Saudi stance, stating, “no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded” the individuals involved in the attack.
