MSNBC has carried a couple of articles in the past few days relating to the important Florida-Saudi-9/11 connections. Mishandling investigations, cover-ups, Suadi support of 9/11, Senators wanting more answers, US complicity….this is big news!

Please visit all original sources for the full length articles, and to show MSNBC that you care that they covered these important and unresolved issues.

March 12: Saudi who Left Fla. Before 9/11 Considered bin Laden a ‘Hero’

A Saudi man who triggered an FBI investigation after he and his family left their Sarasota, Fla., area home and moved overseas two weeks before 9/11 considered Osama bin Laden a “hero” and may have known some of the hijackers, an informant told the FBI in 2004.

The informant also told authorities that the Saudi, Abdulazziz al-Hijji, once introduced him to Adnan El Shukrijumah – another former Florida resident and suspected top al-Qaida operative who today has a $5 million bounty on his head.

Al-Hijji’s name made headlines in September 2011 when The Miami Herald reported on a counterterrorism source’s disclosure of a previously unknown FBI-led probe that followed the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington — one that pointed to a possible Saudi support operation for the hijackers in Florida.

Bob Graham: FBI Statements Conflict with Records of 9/11 Probe

February 22, 2012

“If we are truly going to be respectful of the victims of 9/11 one of the things the president and this administration must do is get to the bottom of these questions,” said Graham, who co-chaired Congress’s bi-partisan Joint Inquiry into the 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. – Broward Bulldog

Former Florida Senator Bob Graham has seen two classified FBI documents that he says raise new questions about the Bureau’s once secret investigation of a possible Saudi support operation for the 9/11 hijackers in Sarasota.

Graham would not disclose the content of the documents, which are marked “Secret,” but said the information they contain is at odds with the FBI’s public statements that there was no connection between the hijackers and Saudis then living in Sarasota.

“There are significant inconsistencies between the public statements of the FBI in September and what I read in the classified documents,” Graham said.

“One document adds to the evidence that the investigation was not the robust inquiry claimed by the FBI,” Graham said. “An important investigative lead was not pursued and unsubstantiated statements were accepted as truth.”

The 9/11 Stand Down

November 17, 2011

“Do the orders still stand?” — Military aide to Vice President Navy Capt. Douglas Cochrane

Was there a stand down on 9-11? In a sense yes, but there is no evidence that a stand down order was issued. There would be no reason for VP Cheney to issue a stand down order, since he issuing a shoot down order, would have the same effect. I will proceed to show this as a fact along with the disturbing fact that the President of the United States, and the Secretary of Defense, both deserted their posts in a time of war. These two individuals who are the only ones authorized to issue shoot down orders of civilian aircraft, created the stand down, by deserting their posts, and then further disgraced themselves, and their offices, by lying to the American people.

“On September the 11th, enemies of freedom committed an act of war against our country.” – Pres G Bush http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/gwbush911jointsessionspeech.htm

Capt. Douglas Cochrane(Navy) – Military aide to Dick Cheney “Cochrane was selected to serve as the Naval Aide to the Vice President in Nov. of 2000 and served Vice President Richard B. Cheney until Dec. 2002.” “He was commended by President George W. Bush for actions as Naval Aide and Vice Presidential Emergency Action Officer, on and about Sept. 11, 2001.” http://mayportmirror.jacksonville.com/military/mayport-mirror/2010-10-27…

Vice Admiral Edmund Giambastiani (Navy)– Military Aide to Donald Rumsfeld “Special Assistant to the Deputy Director for Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency – He also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Mitre Corporation.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmund_Giambastiani

Lt. Col. Thomas F. Gould  (USAF)- Military aide to George W Bush “March 2000 – March 2002, U.S. Air Force military aide to the President, The White House, Washington, D.C.” http://www.af.mil/information/bios/bio.asp?bioID=14866 “I was there to ensure that the commander in chief had direct access to his military commanders, specifically in the realm of if we were under a nuclear attack I would present the president with his options,” Gould said. http://santamariatimes.com/news/local/features/remembering_911/vandenber…

Before President Bush stepped into the classroom he was already told a commercial airliner had flown into the WTC. He was told this by Rice. This is confirmed in his own book, by Rice, and the 9-11 commission released notes.

“Then Condi called. I spoke to her from a secure phone in a classroom that had been converted into a communications center for the traveling White House staff. She told me the plane that had just struck the Trade Center tower was not a light aircraft. It was a commercial jetliner.” “I was stunned. That plane must have had the worst pilot in the world.”    Page 126 http://www.amazon.com/Decision-Points-George-W-Bush/dp/0307590615#reader…

Saudi Royal Ties to 9/11 Hijackers Via Florida Saudi Family?

September 30, 2011

Read Craig Unger’s book “House of Bush,  House of Saud” alongside Russ Baker’s new book “Family of Secrets” and you will see that implicating the Saudi Royals is essentialy going to lead to implicating the Bush family syndicate.

The story below revolves around a Saudi royal family living in Florida that may have had some connections to 11 of the alleged 19 hijackers. – Brian @ Nor Cal Truth

by Russ Baker   source: Who, What, Why    Sep 30, 2011

WhoWhatWhy has found evidence linking the Saudi royal family to Saudis in South Florida who reportedly had direct contact with the 9/11 hijackers before fleeing the United States just prior to the attacks. Our report connects some of the dots first laid out by investigative author Anthony Summers and Florida-based journalist Dan Christensen in articles jointly published in the Miami Herald and on the nonprofit news site BrowardBulldog.org.

In early September of this year, Summers and Christensen reported that a secret FBI probe, never shared with Congressional investigators or the presidential 9/11 commission, had uncovered information indicating the possibility of support for the hijackers from previously unknown confederates in the United States during 2001.

Now WhoWhatWhy reveals that those alleged confederates were closely tied to influential members of the Saudi ruling elite.

As reported in the Herald, phone records documented communication, dating back more than a year, that connected a Saudi family then living in a house near Sarasota, Florida, with the alleged plot leader, Mohammed Atta, and his hijack pilots—as well as to eleven of the other hijackers. In addition, records from the guard house at the gated community tied Atta’s vehicle and his accomplice Ziad Jarrah to actual visits to the house. Although requiring further investigation, this information suggests that the house may have functioned as an operational base for the hijackers.

According to interviews and records examined by The Herald, Anoud and Abdulazzi al-Hiijjii and their young twins abruptly departed their home in Sarasota only days before September 11, 2001 and traveled to Arlington, Virginia, where they stayed briefly at another house owned by Anoud’s father, Esam Ghazzawi.

The 9/11 Hijackers: Amateur Aviators Who Became Super-Pilots on September 11

July 13, 2011

“To hit something with an airplane is easy only if you have been flying for 20 years.”
- Boeing 767 pilot quoted in the Boston Globe

“The conspiracy apparently did not include a surplus of skilled pilots.”
- The Washington Post

by Shoestring  source: 9/11 Blogger    July 13, 2011

In the days after 9/11, numerous pilots and aviation experts commented on the elaborate maneuvers performed by the aircraft in the terrorist attacks, and the advanced skills that would have been necessary to navigate those aircraft into their targets. The men flying the planes must have been “highly skilled pilots” and “extremely knowledgeable and capable aviators,” who were “probably military trained,” these experts said.

And yet the four alleged hijackers who were supposedly flying the aircraft were amateur pilots, who had learned to fly in small propeller planes, and were described by their instructors as having had only “average” or even “very poor” piloting skills. But on their first attempt at flying jet aircraft, on September 11, 2001, these men were supposedly able to fly Boeing 757s and 767s at altitudes of tens of thousands of feet, without any assistance from air traffic control. Three of them were apparently able to successfully navigate their planes all the way to the intended targets, which they hit with pinpoint accuracy.

For such poor pilots to carry out such skilled flying would surely have been extremely unlikely, perhaps impossible. And yet this is what is claimed in the official account of 9/11.

EXPERTS SAID HIJACKERS ‘MUST HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCED PILOTS’
Numerous experts commented that the hijackers who flew the aircraft in the 9/11 attacks must have been highly trained and skillful pilots. Tony Ferrante, the head of the Federal Aviation Administration’s investigations division, spent several days after 9/11 carefully piecing together the movements of the four aircraft targeted in the attacks. According to author Pamela Freni, Ferrante’s “hair stood on end when he realized the precision with which all four airplanes had moved toward their targets.” Ferrante said, “It was almost as though it was choreographed,” and explained, “It’s not as easy as it looks to do what [the hijackers] did at 500 miles an hour.” [1]

Darryl Jenkins, the director of the Aviation Institute at George Washington University, told the New York Times that the men who carried out the attacks “knew what they were doing down to very small details.” He said, “Every one of them was trained in flying big planes.” The Times reported that a “number of aviation experts agreed” with Jenkins and had said that “the hijackers must have been experienced pilots.” John Nance, an airline pilot, author, and aviation analyst, said that “the direct hits on the two towers and on the Pentagon suggested to him that the pilots were experienced fliers.” Nance pointed to the “smooth banking of the second plane to strike the towers,” and said that “precisely controlling a large jet near the ground, necessary for the Pentagon attack, also required advanced skill.” Nance concluded, “There’s no way an amateur could have, with any degree of reliability, done what was done” in the 9/11 attacks.
