September 11, 2001 is regarded as the worst attack against the United States.
The attacks led to over a decade of war in the Middle East, the overthrow of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, the capture of terror mastermind Osama Bin-Laden, and the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives.
The United States hasn’t been the same since September 11, 2001, and our nation has come together to lead the fight against terrorism around the globe.
The attacks were planned and executed by terrorist group Al-Qaeda in New York, Washington D.C., and an attempted attack that was stopped by passengers leading to a plain crash in Pennsylvania.
The bravery of all those involved is impossible to capture with words.
Investigations since the day of the attacks have been ongoing as we continue to uncover clues, evidence, and leads into what all lead to those heinous incidents.
Recently, however, our investigations have taken an unexpected turn. The involvement of one of our strongest allies in the Middle East is becoming the target of speculation.
The Daily Beast asks…
The secret ‘28 pages’ are just the start. The FBI has another 80,000 classified documents, many of which deal with Saudi connections to the 9/11 terror plot. What’s the Bureau got?
A former Republican member of the 9/11 Commission alleged Thursday that there was “clear evidence” of support for the hijackers from Saudi officials.
But in Florida, a federal judge is weighing whether to declassify portions of some 80,000 classified pages that could reveal far more about the hijackers’ Saudis connections and their activities in the weeks preceding the worst attack on U.S. soil.
The still-secret files speak to one of the strangest and most enduring mysteries of the 9/11 attacks. Why did the Saudi occupants of a posh house in gated community in Sarasota, Florida, suddenly vanish in the two weeks prior to the attacks? And had they been in touch with the leader of the operation, Mohamed Atta, and two of his co-conspirators?
On a separate development, in an unprecedented and humiliating move. the US Senate has unanimously ignored President Obama’s veto threat of a bill that would allow US citizen’s to sue Saudi Arabia for complicity in attacks on Americans. Obama’s pledge to veto left many in this country scratching their heads.
