May 15, 2016: A US interrogation report detailing the questioning of Saudi diplomats is drawing fresh attention to the alleged role of Saudi Arabia in 9-11 terrorist attacks.
The report, quietly released by the American National Archives over the last 18 months and described by its writers as “chilling,” has drawn little public scrutiny until now.
The newly-declassified documents are hoped to help resolve the lingering mystery about what is hidden in a confidential congressional report about ties between Saudi Arabia and the 9/11 attacks.
The files detail US investigators’ trip to Saudi Arabia in 2004 and their face-to-face confrontation with some of the Saudis believed to have been linked to the 9-11 hijackers on the American soil.
A key witness in the investigation has been identified as 32-year-old Fahad al-Thumairy – a former Saudi diplomat who was believed to be a ringleader of a Saudi government spy network inside the US.
Thumairy was believed to have given support to at least two of the 9/11 hijackers in California in the year before the 2001 attacks…Read More (Presstv.ir)

9-11 Commission Memoranda for the Record (MFRs)
During the 9-11 Commission’s investigation, commission staff conducted over 1200 fact-finding interviews. The MFRs are summaries of these interviews, and are available in the National Archives Catalog.
May 12, 2016: A former Republican member of the 9/11 commission, breaking dramatically with the commission’s leaders, said Wednesday he believes there was clear evidence that Saudi government employees were part of a support network for the 9/11 hijackers and that the Obama administration should move quickly to declassify a long-secret congressional report on Saudi ties to the 2001 terrorist attack.
The comments by John F Lehman, an investment banker in New York who was Navy secretary in the Reagan administration, signal the first serious public split among the 10 commissioners since they issued a 2004 final report that was largely read as an exoneration of Saudi Arabia, which was home to 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11…Read More (UK Guardian)
