The FBI, the investigative agency of the US federal police, has released a document hitherto covered by state secrecy concerning the investigation into the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. It is the first document to be published after the president last September 3. of the United States Joe Biden had signed an executive order that required the desecretion of the FBI reports on the investigations, on the occasion of the 20 years since the attacks.
The document, dating back to 2016, is obscured in several parts and contains an analysis of the possible connections between the attackers and the government of Saudi Arabia: 15 of the 19 hijackers were in fact Saudi citizens, as was Osama bin Laden, who was then the leader of the terrorist organization al Qaeda. In the document there are several details on the alleged links between some Saudi citizens residing in the United States at that time and the attackers.
Above all, there is talk of an interrogation carried out in 2015 to an employee of the Saudi consulate in Los Angeles, who had said he had had contact with some Saudi people who would have provided logistical support to the attackers: Omar al-Bayoumi, who in the 1990s was studying in Los Angeles. Angeles, Fahad al-Thumairy, who at the time worked as a diplomat at the Saudi consulate in Los Angeles, Mohammed Muhanna and three other people whose names are, however, obscured. However, the document concludes that there is no evidence that the Saudi government was in any way related to these people.
