FBI releases declassified document into Saudi 9/11 links after Biden order

The FBI released a newly declassified document on the 9/11 attacks Saturday, revealing details on the logistical support given to two of the Saudi hijackers in the lead-up to the terrorist attacks, as the world marked the 20th anniversary of one of America’s darkest days.

The 16-page document is the first investigative record to be shared since President Joe Biden ordered a declassification review of files on 9/11 last week.

Although it is heavily redacted, the document provides a summary of an FBI interview carried out in 2015 with a man who had regular contact with Saudi nationals in the U.S., who aided Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, the first hijackers to arrive in America, once they arrived in the country.

It details contacts that the hijackers had with Saudi associates in the U.S., but it does not provide evidence that senior Saudi government officials were complicit in the attacks.
