Former senior FBI official: Saudis likely played a ‘knowing role’ in Sept. 11 attacks

A former senior FBI intelligence official said he believes that Saudi Arabian government officials played at least an indirect role in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States — and potentially a “knowing role” — going further than most in law enforcement have traditionally been willing to say in assessing the Saudi regime’s involvement.

“To think that they [Saudi officials] did not play some knowing role or at least some indirect role in 9/11, I think, would be naiveté,” Frank Figliuzzi, former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence, said in an interview on the Yahoo News “Skullduggery” podcast. “It’s safe to say there are unresolved and undisclosed factors touching on Saudi government knowledge and/or involvement in or with the 9/11 hijackers and plotters.”
