Retired FBI Agent Accuses 9/11 Commission of Lying About Saudi Connections

By Derrick Broze

Sworn testimony from a former FBI investigator claims the 9/11 Commission lied to the American public regarding the relationship between the hijackers and Saudi Arabia.

The question over exactly what role the Saudi Kingdom played in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 is once again a hot topic. The Saudi Kingdom has long been suspected of financing the 9/11 hijackers. A fourteen-year-old lawsuit brought forth by the “9/11 Families and Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism” seeks to hold the Saudi Kingdom accountable for the attacks. Meanwhile, the Saudi government continues to deny any involvement and calls for the lawsuit’s dismissal.

Now, The Florida Bulldog reports that a new sworn statement from a former FBI agent has once again called attention to the involvement of the Saudi Kingdom. In a six-page statement provided as part of the lawsuit against Saudi Arabia, retired FBI agent Stephen K. Moore says the 9/11 Commission has provided the American public with incorrect statements regarding the FBI’s investigation. Moore is a 25-year veteran of the FBI who retired in 2008. He also led the FBI’s PENTTBOM, or “Pentagon/Twin Towers Bombing Investigation,” a 400-member task force responsible for investigating the 9/11 attacks.

Specifically, Moore disputed statements made by the 9/11 Commission regarding the FBI’s investigation into two Saudi hijackers – Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, two of the five men accused of crashing American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. Moore’s statements deal with Hazmi and al-Mihdhar’s connection to Saudi diplomat Fahad al-Thumairy and Omar al-Bayoumi.  Thumairy was an Imam at a Los Angeles mosque with extreme views while Bayoumi was a suspected agent of the Saudi government posing as a student.

“I have read the statements in the 9/11 Commission report that ‘we have not found evidence that Thumairy provided assistance to the two operatives (Hazmi and Mihdhar).’ In light of the proof assembled in our investigation this statement is incorrect. There was clearly evidence that Thumairy provided assistance to Hazmi and Mihdhar,” Moore said in the statement.

Here are more excerpts of Moore’s statement as reported by The Florida Bulldog:

“Based on evidence we gathered during the course of our investigation, I concluded that diplomatic and intelligence personnel of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia knowingly provided material support to the two 9/11 hijackers and facilitated the 9/11 plot. My colleagues in our investigation shared that conclusion.”

“We learned that the al Qaeda plotters were methodical in their preparations for the attacks and would not have sent Hazmi and Mihdhar to Los Angeles without a support structure in place,” Moore said. “Neither Hazmi nor Mihdhar could speak English. They were completely unfamiliar with life and customs in the United States and lacked even the most basic skills to begin pilot training. They would have had zero chance for success without a support structure.”

Interestingly, The Florida Bulldog reports that an FBI report obtained by a previous Freedom of Information Act request describes “an active investigation by federal agents and prosecutors in New York targeting a support network for Hazmi and Mihdhar.” Despite this investigation and claims that the authorities were considering filing charges against an unnamed suspect for providing material support to the hijackers, no such charges ever materialized. The declassified portions of the FBI report list three “main subjects” including the aforementioned Thumairy and Bayoumi. However, The Florida Bulldog reports that the name of the third suspect was withheld for “national security.”

Who is this third accomplice? Why were charges never filed? Why would revealing these names endanger national security? We will likely never know because, as Stephen K. Moore notes in his statement, “much of the PENTTBOM investigation remains classified.”

Activist Post recently reported that the 9/11 Families and Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism sent a letter to President Trump asking him to clarify his position on Saudi Arabia and its role in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. “This letter is inspired by news reports that today you met with Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman al Saud,” reads the letter from Terry Strada, a widow and the national chair for the 9/11 Families & Survivors. Strada’s letter continues:

As you know, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a defendant in our lawsuit because of the involvement of its agents in supporting the 9/11 hijackers, and for support that flowed to al-Qaeda through institutions the Kingdom established and funded to spread a radical form of Islam that lies at the root of both al-Qaeda and, more recently, ISIS. Despite mounting evidence, the Saudis have refused to accept accountability for their actions and the injury they have caused across the globe.

The latest revelations in the 9/11 families lawsuit should serve as yet another reason why the United States should cut all relations with the terrorist nation. Unfortunately, with the current administration, I wouldn’t hold my breath.

  1. well, whether the Saudis, the Finns, or Martian algae was behind the 911 attacks, the United States Government knew all about it years beforehand and threaded its details into their collusively-produced Hollywood films such as the 1998 “Enemy Of The State”, in which Jon Voight’s NSA character was born on – of all possible 365 days of the calendar – September 11th, and where Gene Hackman and Will Smith discuss the Twin Towers’ upcoming destruction. Scenes in that film were drawn from real-life situations, including in-home surveillance at various U.S. addresses. One of those addresses was on a Woodlawn Avenue in Tustin, California, the same street name being used more recently for Jon Voight’s film “Woodlawn”. Try not to fall asleep in the face of truth here. The reality is that this collusion with Hollywood (and Indie, foreign, Netflix, etc. productions) has been going on for many years, and is one of the organs of not only control but eerily-revealed schemes such as 911. I happened to have lived at one of the addresses from which scenes were drawn for that 1998 film, and would require much more space than this to tell the story. But you are governed by pathological liars, madmen who twist not only the English language in their madcap post-crime legislation used against you, but really never running out of steam for their madcap plans. Expect more to come. And for God’s sakes, do not look for hope nor truth from clergy who are in the pockets of Markus Wolfe’s Department of Homeland Security. Geeez, you had to be told this?

    • There’s also the Lone Gunman pilot episode. …Before that Martin Keating, brother of former Oklahoma governor Frank Keating, wrote The Final Jihad about a militia group that bombed an Oklahoma federal building and one of the perps happened to be “Tom McVey” along with other eerie ‘coincidences’. The Final Jihad was written four years before the OKC bombing.

      The take down of the US constitution goes way beyond having anything to do with Saudi Arabia.

      • sterling addition to the commentary here, To really get into the greasy nuts-and-bolts of this, you and others would have to do what nobody wants to do when things get complicated, and that is to deeply care about even highly controversial, but nonetheless truth-laden, situations, some of which involve the criminal justice system along with other scandal-ridden national policies.

        • I spend my days exposing the core of the corruption, that includes the global core at this point. Otherwise we get mired in minutiae, the very trap that was laid out for us long ago. Having said that, I do believe ALL available legitimate research and activism is critically important as part of an open source solution. The *key*, imho, is understanding the elites’ machinations in their n-dimensional ‘chess’ game and becoming deft at shifting our lenses and our focus to immediate threats and effective strategies to create friction, at the very least.

          However, our window of opportunity may be closing fast, esp. in light of Obama transferring control over the internet to the UN via ICANN and out of the protection of the US First Amendment. Notice “alt” outlets virtually ignored this move despite its critical nature and the fact their entire ‘business model’ rests upon a free and open net.

          • I don’t have “humble” opinions – not after what I have been through, what I know, and having watched the deadened reactions of the American populace. A few humble postings at alternative websites will do nothing.

          • Some of us have been overtly harassed, followed, black helicopters treatment, etc. Others like Wolfgang Halbig became targeted individuals. At least in pseudo alt a few of us are trying to keep the disinfo down to a dull roar. We do what we can and then there young warriors like the founder of P.A.N.D.A. whose movement didn’t spread much. We can’t get traction unless we work together but the few who are awake are strongly compartmentalized. Accurate diagnoses are needed – and outright activism – just not the kind that gets individuals picked off. As you may know from your own Hx.

          • Nor does it help with clarification of whodunit when “they” hack into the telephone connection to the ISP and cause connections to drop out.

          • Ditto

    • i have always wondered how people can walk into a movie theatre (or sit in front of the idjit box), and invest one-and-a-half to three hours of their lives to watch a “fictional” movie, and walk outside afterwards, look at the real world, and (self-delusion?) proclaim, ” at least it will never happen here”
      The Bourne Identity (and the rest) CIA and other intelligence sources have “agendas”, but out in the real world, “oh, so, you’re into conspiracy theories!”
      even the actors / actresses – Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t see President Snow in Obama, but almost even before his inauguration was ready to accuse Trump of being the prototype for Snow

  2. yada yada yada Saudis yada yada…

    Israel and the US did 9/11. Cui bono. If you haven’t figured this out by now, you’re either FAR too stupid, or paid to pretend you are.

    Like the FBI agent who tried to end-run everyone about how some yokel “they knew about” in Arkansas or something “was the guy that actually killed Kennedy”.

    yada yada yada….

    • Exactly right, Occams. I’m surprized your comment wasn’t deleted for telling the truth. If you had used the J word it would have been.

      • I’ve noticed a REAL stepped-up effort as of late to try to reinforce ‘official narratives’ (doesn’t anyone add 2 + 2 when they say “narrative” ?!?!?); 9/11, Sandy Hoax, seen some Boston nonsense. Of course, Vegas quickly disappeared, as I stated elsewhere, when DILIGENT, alt-media began to uncover some VERY uncomfortable facts, witnesses, VIDEO, etc.

        No one wanted to stand up and have to answer to COLOR VIDEO of others with guns, etc.

        I feel like there was really a sudden awakening with Vegas. 600 wounded – NOT ONE GOT WORSE OR DIED?

        But as Mischael Rivero at said in this article, today;

        ‘2 former Nazi camp guards charged with hundreds of Holocaust killings’

        “If they are cranking up the Holocaust, then Israel is about to do something warlike to someone! Tell everyone in Gaza to duck!”

        Or Iran…………..

  3. They are still giving false statements to the American people… What shame…

    • Since Dallas/1963, this political machine has pretty much spewed a continuous stream of lies. Goals appear to be the complete military/corporate domination of the world and the total destruction of the social fabric and economy of the US.

      This political machine is not our government.

  4. This is a thoroughly vetted professional law enforcement investigator who is calling the 9/11 Commission, CONSPIRATORS & TRAITORS! What did Israel, Saudi Arabia, Rumsfeld and Bush know PRIOR TO 9/11?

    • The entire air defense system was shut down. The attacks happened to be the same scenario that was being simulated. Elements of US fedgov and their foreign partners did 9/11.

      BTW, the 7/7 attack in England followed the same pattern — the actual attack happened to be identical to a simulated attack carried out at the same time.

    • The close cooperation of all four in the planning of 9-11 and the cooperation of the USAF leadership in carrying out the plan is never attained in normal, US Government function.

  5. Why has the verified factual reporting on Pakistan’s ISI intelligence chief being key to a $100,000 wire transfer to Mohammed Atta gone down the memory hole? …This is not anywhere near the vague innuendo of the planted limited hangout “28 redacted pages” meme that was pushed by Graham, no friend to liberty or transparency. Why the hyperfocus on the Saudis right NOW?

    If the American public were to understand 9/11 was an inside job to create a global police state then the entire house of cards would crumble. Instead we get an excuse for a global digital currency by using the Saudi connection as a red herring.

  6. This is crap.

    Not that I like Saudi Arabia, but we’ve known for years that they used to pay big bribes to bin Laden to stay out of Saudi Arabia.

    He was much disliked there although his family was part of the establishment.

    The payments had nothing to do with attacking New York. Nothing. Although interests like Senator Charles Schumer would very much like you to believe that.

    The Saudis were in bed with families like the Bushes and did them all kinds of favors over the years.

    Besides, nothing could be clearer from studying the facts that those plane strikes alone could not possibly bring down the towers.

    Whoever knew well in advance that those plane strikes would happen – and there was lots of time since those were elaborate plans for the plane strikes – used the event to bring down the towers with controlled demolitions.

    The evidence is exceedingly convincing.

    This isn’t just my opinion; it’s shared by 3000 architects and engineers, including Ph. Ds in structural engineering:

    The saturation of the corporate media with the “official” narrative of what happened on 9/11 is one of the largest instances of state propaganda in history. Folks, we’ve been had.

  9. PentBomb investigation. In fact, this report has ever been released and the same Florida Bulldog that is cited in this obvious limited hang out reported about how the FBI covered up the bombing of the Twin Towers and other buildings.

    “FBI officials who briefed the 9/11 Review Commission on the bureau’s sprawling 9/11 investigation code-named PENTTBOMB steered the discussion away from Saudi Arabia by repeatedly disavowing or downplaying reports by agents alleging terrorist ties to the kingdom.

    The FBI’s stance is similar to its repudiation before the commission of a startling April 2002 FBI report that said investigators had determined that Saudis living in Sarasota had “many connections to individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.” The memo, made public by the FBI in March 2013, flatly contradicted earlier FBI statements that its Sarasota investigation, kept secret for a decade, had found no ties to terrorism.

    The FBI’s March 31, 2014 Memorandum for the Record (MFR) about the briefing, stamped “SECRET,” was partially declassified and released to Florida Bulldog last week along with other records. The news organization is suing the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for access to 9/11 Review Commission records it has not released.

    The FBI, which for more than a year refused to disclose any documents about the 9/11 Review Commission, recently has dribbled out records to comply with FOIA requirements following a judge’s admonishment this month that she was not satisfied with the FBI’s explanations for withholding certain information.

    Many other FBI records on the commission continue to be withheld in full, while the bureau has yet to acknowledge the existence of additional documents that appear to exist.

    Former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, a Florida Democrat who served as co-chair of Congress’ Joint Inquiry into 9/11, reviewed the MFR and called it “just another chapter in the cover-up

    The Review Commission was authorized by Congress to conduct an “external” review of the FBI’s post-9/11 performance and to evaluate new evidence, but was largely controlled by the FBI. Its three members, including Reagan-era Attorney General Edwin Meese, were chosen by FBI Director James Comey and paid $84,000 each by the FBI. The commission issued its final report in March 2015.

    The March 2014 briefing was given by Jacqueline Maguire, supervisory special agent in the FBI’s Washington field office; Nikki Floris, director of the Analytical Branch of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, and an unidentified FBI supervisory special agent from New York.

    Classified until 2039.”

    The briefing’s title and much of its content was redacted from the three-page MFR on grounds of national security. The censored parts are to remain classified until Dec. 31, 2039.”
    Indeed,, the FBI appears to be part of the cover up so this recent revelation by an agent who was working on organized crime would seem to be a way of distracting attention, a limited hang out in the classical sense. Shades of the other critical false flag cover up, the FBI records of the JFK assassination which were to be released by now but Trump gave the FBI an extension.

    What is that old saying: once a FBI agent, always an FBI agent…..

    Wiki defines: “A limited hangout or partial hangout is, according to former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Victor Marchetti, “spy jargon for a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting—sometimes even volunteering—some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further.

    The phrase has been cited as a summation of the strategy of mixing partial admissions with misinformation and resistance to further investigation…” Wikipedia

  10. The FBI agent is “stirring the pot” to further confuse. Any agent who provides genuine, insider information on 9-11 would be prosecuted; or removed.
    The identity of one major treasonist is provided by former MOSSAD agent, Ari Ben-Menashe. “Profits of War Inside the Secret U.S. – Israeli Arms Network,” pp 70-75, identifies the man. He was a major player in 9-11 and similar, preceding activities such as summarized by John Stockwell, in his video, “Third World War”. Stockwell´s video summarizes CIA destruction from 1950 – 1980.

  11. I was up that morning when 911 happened and you never seen that first video that was broadcast. It showed first explosion from the ground level and smoke rising before the plane hit the first tower. Never saw that video again.
