9/11 Attack: The US investigative agency FBI made public a detailed document on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack. This document states that the Saudi government had no role in the attack on America.
20 years have passed since the 9/11 attacks on America. Was Saudi Arabia any role in this attack? This question has come up from time to time. Although the Gulf country has denied these claims, but what is the truth? The FBI has released a detailed document in this regard. In this, information has been given about the contact of hijackers with Saudi allies in America. There is no evidence in this document to prove that the Saudi government was involved in the plot of the 9/11 attacks.
No evidence of Saudi government involvement
The FBI has released a new 16-page document relating to logistical support to two Saudi Arabian men who hijacked the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Documents suggest that the kidnappers were in contact with their Saudi accomplices in the US, but there is no evidence that the Saudi Arabian government was involved in the plot.
Documents issued on the 20th anniversary of the attack
The documents were released on Saturday, the 20th anniversary of the attack, after President Joe Biden ordered them to be made public, which had been kept secret for years. In recent weeks, the families of the victims have pressured Biden to release the document. They have long been seeking to release records that could prove helpful in their ongoing trial in New York. They allege that senior Saudi officials were complicit in the attacks. The Saudi Arabian government has denied any involvement.
Saudi Arabia supported the document
The Saudi embassy in Washington said on Wednesday that it supports releasing all documents to “end forever the baseless allegations against its government.” Documents released on Saturday details interviews with a man who applied for US citizenship in 2015 and had repeated contact with Saudi citizens several years ago. Investigators say these same citizens provided “significant logistical support” to the kidnappers.
