More Evidence of Saudi Intelligence Role in 9/11 Attacks
In the U.S., newly declassified documents from the files of the official investigatory Commission on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, give further evidence of the direct role of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services. One key document, a “Memorandum for the Record” dated April 23, 2004, confirms that a known Saudi intelligence officer, Omar al-Bayoumi, was working closely with two of the hijackers based on the West Coast, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar.
This document summarizes an interview that Commission staffers Quinn John Tamm Jr. and Dietrich Snell had with an unnamed source, who was an FBI informant in the San Diego area, and who rented a room in his home to two hijackers during much of 2000. In the interview, the FBI informant confirmed the relationship between al-Bayoumi and the two hijackers.
However, the document omits one highly interesting piece of information, that is included in other 9/11 Commission documents, as well as in a 28-page synopsis suppressed by the Bush White House, on the role of al-Bayoumi and Osama Basnan (another identified Saudi intelligence officer) in funding the two West Coast hijackers. That is, that Prince Bandar bin-Sultan, then Saudi Ambassador to the United States, and his wife, Princess Haifa, paid between $50,000 and $72,000 to al-Bayoumi who, in turn, passed on some of the money to al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar, to finance their rent, and their flight school attendance, previous to the 9/11 attacks. Note that Princess Haifa is the sister of Prince Turki bin-Faisal, who was the head of Saudi Arabian intelligence at the time of the 9/11 attacks – and resigned, suddenly, shortly thereafter.
The fact that the two hijackers were living in the home of an FBI informant, who did tell the FBI that the two men were living with him, is yet another volatile aspect of the 9/11 case that has been suppressed.
The fact that then-FBI Director Louis Freeh is now the attorney representing Prince Bandar in the BAE bribery case (Al Yamamah contract) is of direct relevance to the ongoing probe into what really was behind the 9/11 attacks. One senior U.S. intelligence source has emphasized that it is very likely that some of the cash paid out by Prince Bandar and Princess Haifa to the two Saudi intelligence officers, al-Bayoumi and Basnan, came directly out of the BAE bribe payments, wired to Bandar’s Saudi embassy account at Riggs National Bank.
The new revelations about the Saudi role in 9/11 add further weight to news reports in the Sunday Times of London of July 6, that Meir Dagan, the head of Israel’s intelligence service Mossad, recently told Prime Minister Netanyahu that Saudi Arabia would not object to an Israeli attack on Iran. In addition, the Times cites another unnamed Israeli source, who claimed that the Saudis would permit Israeli jets to fly over Saudi territory, to carry out bombing attacks against Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons sites. In a recent event in Washington, D.C., Lyndon LaRouche identified Israel and Saudi Arabia as two anchors of the British Sykes-Picot imperial controls over the entire region.
