(Excerpts taken from Business Insider, with further commentary by the baharmedia)

Florida Senator Rob Graham is convinced the government of Saudi Arabia were directly behind the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. 14 years later there is mounting evidence that the devil in the Middle East is Saudi Arabia. No question about it. If the U.S. is committed to defeating Al Qaeda and religious extremism it must surely break with the Saudis.

Former Florida Gov. Bob Graham said U.S. authorities should reopen an inquiry into who assisted the hijackers while they were in the United States. Graham, a U.S. senator at the time of the attacks, co-chaired the Congressional Joint Inquiry into them. He told an audience recently that it was a matter of national security and justice for federal officials to disclose who supported and financed the 9/11 attacks — including a possible “external support system” of people across Florida.

“I think it’s very important that this information about Sarasota and Delray Beach and other places where the hijackers would have benefited from a support network be made available,” Graham said.

The event Graham was talking at, titled “Unanswered Questions of 9/11: A Conversation with Bob Graham,” was presented at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale by Broward Bulldog, an independent nonprofit online newspaper, and Boardroom Communications Inc., a marketing and public relations firm.

Graham said President Barack Obama should help safeguard the country by ordering the declassification of federal documents pertaining to who supported the 9/11 terrorists. Graham said if such a terrorism network exists today, it could be used for more attacks.

“What leads us to believe that that network has evaporated, been dismissed or rolled up?” Graham asked. “I have no reason to believe that that’s occurred.”

Graham said learning the extent of support received by the terrorists also is a matter of justice. “There are 6,000 Americans who are either survivors of the attack — one of those ladies is in our audience — or they are members of the family of the victims,” he said.

Nearly 3,000 people died on 9/11 at New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in western Pennsylvania. Graham said an important 9/11 development that has been revealed was how a Saudi family, then living in Sarasota, allegedly supported the hijackers.

During the past year, Broward Bulldog has been reporting about how Congress and the 9/11 Commission were left unaware of an FBI inquiry that scrutinized ties between the 9/11 hijackers and the Saudi family in Sarasota, who reportedly left the country just before the attacks.

Broward Bulldog last week filed a lawsuit demanding the release of FBI records that allegedly link the Sarasota family to the terrorists. The FBI has replied it found no credible evidence connecting the family and the 9/11 hijackers, according to Broward Bulldog editor Dan Christensen. But the FBI has rebuffed specific requests by several newspapers to provide details in support of its assertion, Christensen said.

The lawsuit, which names the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice as defendants, is pending in federal court in Fort Lauderdale.

Several people who attended Graham’s seminar said they thought Graham was well-versed about 9/11. “I came to listen to his experience, because I know he’s sincere,” said Howard Millhauser, 62, a Pinecrest man who works in Fort Lauderdale.

Despite leaving Capitol Hill in 2005, former U.S. Senator Bob Graham (D-Florida) has continuously sought to declassify the final 28 pages of a congressional inquiry into the 9/11 terrorist attacks that could highlight a Saudi connection.

Graham told The New York Times that there are two main reasons he continues to lobby for the declassification of the inquiry along with 80,000 FBI documents related to the congressional inquiry.

“No. 1, I think the American people deserve to know the truth of what has happened in their name,” Graham, who was a co-chairman of the congressional inquiry into the attacks, told The Times. “No. 2 is justice for these family members who have suffered such loss and thus far have been frustrated largely by the U.S. government in their efforts to get some compensation.”

Graham has given two sworn statements alleging that the Saudi government provided assistance and support to the 9/11 terrorists. The former senator also alleged that the FBI had discovered links between a Saudi family in southern Florida and some of the hijackers, although the FBI denies these claims.

“One thing that irritates me is that the F.B.I. has gone beyond just covering up, trying to avoid disclosure, into what I call aggressive deception,” Graham told The Times.

In a July 2011 article for The Daily Beast, Graham alleged that two Saudi hijackers received backing and support from a Saudi “agent” in 2000 after entering the States. This agent provided the would-be terrorists with flight lessons, helped secure an apartment, and introduced them to a circle of mostly Saudi friends.

More recently, Zacarias Moussaoui, a convicted al Qaeda operative who was part of the 9/11 attacks, alleged that the Saudi royal family had ties to the attacks. Moussaoui said in February that Saudi intelligence chief Prince Turki al-Faisal had donated to al Qaeda before the attacks.

Moussaoui also said that he had discussed a possible operation to shoot down Air Force One with members of the Saudi Embassy in Washington. Saudi Arabia, as well as the CIA’s former counterterrorism chief, have dismissed Moussaoui’s allegations.

Yesterday, Congress voted to override President Obama’s veto by an overwhelming majority. This was good. Legal action against the Saudi’s will surely reveal the truth. In my opinion, we are about to see a cataclysmic shift in the middle east – with Saudi Arabia’s royals’ future at risk – as it was for the Shah of Iran in 1979. The only question is, who will take over in the power vacuum that follows? Will Saudi Arabia become another Libya or Syria? Both Ghadaffi and Assad were/are bad, but surely the outcomes in Libya and Syria are now worse. Destroying the Saudi Royals is a worthy task, but rebuilding the region and maintaining stability will be a very tall order.
