Graham: FBI hindered Congresss 9/11 inquiry, withheld reports about Sarasota Saudis
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Miami Herald

Former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham has accused the FBI in court papers of having impeded Congresss Joint Inquiry into 9/11 by withholding information about a Florida connection to the ... attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. The information ... includes a recently declassified FBI report that ties a Saudi family who once lived in Sarasota to individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001. The FBIs failure to call (to the Joint Inquirys attention) documents finding many connections between Saudis living in the United States and individuals associated with the terrorist attack(s) interfered with the Inquirys ability to complete its mission, said Graham, co-chairman of the Joint Inquiry. Graham said the FBI kept the 9/11 Commission in the dark, too. He said co-chairmen Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton and executive director Philip Zelikow all told him they were unaware of the FBIs Sarasota investigation. Moreover, Graham stated that Deputy FBI Director Sean Joyce, the Bureaus second in command, personally intervened to block him from speaking with the special agent-in-charge of the Sarasota investigation. I am troubled by what appears to me to be a persistent effort by the FBI to conceal from the American people information concerning possible Saudi support of the Sept. 11 attacks, Floridas former governor said.
