Saudi Florida Family Had Ties To People Connected To 9/11 Terrorists- Declassified FBI Report

In 2001, Saudi Abdulaziz al-Hijji was living with his family in an upscale luxury home in a gated community in Sarasota, on the east coast of Florida. In late August of that year, the family suddenly disappeared, abandoning the home, three cars (one of them brand spanking new) expensive clothing and jewelry, toys, diapers a fridge full of food, fruit on the kitchen table and other items.  We all know what happened 2 weeks later on 9/11.  There has been speculation that the al-Hijji family had indirect ties to at least  three of the terrorists responsible for hijacking those planes that September day, and newly (partially) declassified FBI documents seem to confirm that notion, contradicting the 'official' FBI story that the al-Hiji's had no connection whatsoever.

One partially declassified document, marked “secret,” lists three of those individuals and ties them to the Venice, Fla., flight school where suicide hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi trained. Accomplice Ziad Jarrah took flying lessons at another school a block away.

Atta and al-Shehhi were at the controls of the jetliners that slammed into the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center, killing nearly 3,000 people. Jarrah was the hijacker-pilot of United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in a field in rural Pennsylvania.
The names, addresses and dates of birth of the three individuals tied to the flight school were blanked out before the records were released to amid ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation.

The information in the documents runs counter to previous FBI statements. It also adds to concerns raised by official investigations but never fully explored, that the full truth about Saudi Arabia and the 9/11 attacks has not yet been told.

Read the full story on the Miami Herald. It's terribly disturbing.

It does make one wonder about the original Saudi 'person of interest' in the Boston Marathon Bombing Massacre. Quickly ruled out as a suspect, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi was rumored to be deported next week, although Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has denied that possibility. I'm not questioning the guilt of the two Chechen brothers, but were there others involved, and could it possibly have been Alharbi after all?
