The Steering Committee of the 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism endorses the efforts of investigative reporters Dan Christensen and Anthony Summers and calls on the FBI to come clean regarding an investigation involving a Saudi family, former residents of Sarasota, Fla., who may have provided aid to the 9/11 hijackers. Broward Bulldog, Inc., a Florida non-profit corporation, and its founder Dan Christensen filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit to obtain documents they were denied and are suing the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida.
On June 5, former Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Bob Graham (D-FL), who also co-chaired the 9/11 Congressional Inquiry, filed a declaration in support of the FOIA request, writing, “I am troubled by what appears to me to be a persistent effort by the FBI to conceal from the American people information concerning possible Saudi support of the September 11 attacks.”
“First President Obama promises me personally to release the 28 pages removed from the congressional committee’s report and doesn’t, and now the FBI is pulling this stunt,” said Bill Doyle, father of Joseph M. Doyle who died in the World Trade Center. “The FBI keeps contradicting itself. On one hand, they say they found no evidence connecting the Sarasota Saudis to 9/11. On the other hand, they say releasing the information would threaten national security. But they can’t have it both ways. And the Courts should not let them get away with it.”
