Classified documents contradict FBI on post-9/11 probe of Saudis, ex-senator says
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of MSNBC

Former Florida Sen. Bob Graham, who co-chaired Congress Joint Inquiry into the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has seen two classified FBI documents that he says are at odds with the bureaus public statements that there was no connection between the hijackers and Saudis then living in Sarasota, Fla. There are significant inconsistencies between the public statements of the FBI in September and what I read in the classified documents, Graham said. One document adds to the evidence that the investigation was not the robust inquiry claimed by the FBI, Graham said. An important investigative lead was not pursued and unsubstantiated statements were accepted as truth. Congresss bipartisan inquiry released its public report in July 2003. The final 28 pages, regarding possible foreign support for the terrorists, were censored in their entirety -- on President George W. Bushs instructions. Graham said the two classified FBI documents that he saw, dated 2002 and 2003, were prepared by an agent who participated in the Sarasota investigation. He said the agent suggested that another federal agency be asked to join the investigation, but that the idea was rejected. Graham attempted in recent weeks to contact the agent, he said, only to find the man had been instructed by FBI headquarters not to talk.
Note: Much evidence exists implicating not only Saudi Arabia, but also Pakistan, Israel and the UK in the 9/11 attacks. Could the purpose behind these high-profile claims from former US senators be to deflect attention from the key perpetrators, rogue elements within the US government? As WantToKnow team member Prof. David Ray Griffin has exhaustively demonstrated, almost all of the evidence for Muslim hijackers vanishes on close examination.
