Graham speaks out
Sen. Bob Graham's new book raises the Saudi-9/11 question, charging a cover-up by the White House.
I hope the press covers this, and that John Kerry starts to pick it up.
It's good that the issue be examined, but we remind our readers that it was a story one year ago. We posted
on the topic, and diagrammed the connections, as shown below.
To be fair, there is something new from Graham: (emp add)
When the staff tried to conduct interviews in that investigation, and with an FBI informant, Abdussattar Shaikh, who also helped the eventual hijackers, they were blocked by the FBI and the administration, Graham wrote.
The administration and CIA also insisted that the details about the Saudi support network that benefited two hijackers be left out of the final congressional report, Graham complained.
Bush had concluded that ''a nation-state that had aided the terrorists should not be held publicly to account,'' Graham wrote. ``It was as if the president's loyalty lay more with Saudi Arabia than with America's safety.''

Yes, the charts and excellent, and help a lot in understanding.
I wonder who those two Saudi embassy employees were? Well all we have to do is wait 30 years and we may find out.
