Families of victims have pressed U.S. to declassify more
Saudi Arabia has long denied any role in the terrorist strike
The Federal Bureau of Investigation declassified a secret internal memo on its investigation into allegations that Saudi Arabia’s government provided assistance to the terrorists that carried out the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S.
The 16-page, partially redacted memo doesn’t draw any conclusion on the allegations, though it details links and contacts between the terrorists and Saudi nationals living in the U.S. at the time, including one of the country’s diplomats. The memo relates to contacts in the U.S. by Saudi-born Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar, who were among the hijackers that crashed a passenger jet into the Pentagon.
