FBI Accidentally Reveals Name of Saudi Diplomat Suspected of Supporting 9/11 Hijackers

FBI Accidentally Reveals Name of Saudi Diplomat Suspected of Supporting 9/11 HijackersThe FBI has accidentally revealed the name of a Saudi diplomat who is suspected of directing support to two of the September 11, 2001, plane hijackers.In a federal court filing by Jill Sanborn, the assistant director of the FBI's counterterrorism division, the diplomat's name was redacted in all instances except one. In that instance, Sanborn's document refers to a diplomat formerly stationed at the Saudi embassy in the U.S. as "Jarrah," Yahoo News reported on Tuesday.The name refers to Mussaed Ahmed al-Jarrah, who served at the Saudi embassy from 1999 to 2000. Al-Jarrah "was responsible for the placement of Ministry of Islamic Affairs employees known as guides and propagators posted to the United States, including Fahad Al Thumairy," according to a declaration by former FBI agent Catherine Hunt, who has assisted some of the families of 9/11 victims.Al-Thumairy is a Saudi cleric who served as imam of a Los Angeles mosque. FBI reports released in 2012 revealed that Al-Thumairy and another individual were suspected of being "tasked" with aiding two 9/11 hijackers, although agents could not prove the suspicion conclusively.Some families of 9/11 victims have seized on the disclosure as hard evidence that the Saudi government had some level of involvement in the attacks."This shows there is a complete government cover-up of the Saudi involvement," Brett Eagleson, a spokesman for the families, told Yahoo. Eagleson noted that the Justice Department had informed families of al-Jarrah's identity in September 2019, it had done so while forbidding the reporting of al-Jarrah's name to the public.The U.S. maintains an alliance with Saudi Arabia that has deepened in recent years as the two countries have placed pressure on Iranian forces throughout the Middle East. The Saudi government has repeatedly denied that any of its representatives were involved in the 9/11 hijackings.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reveals to Seth Meyers What She’ll Do If Biden Beats Bernie

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reveals to Seth Meyers What She’ll Do If Biden Beats BernieWhen Seth Meyers sat down with Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Thursday night, he expressed the big fear for Democratic voters now that the presidential contest is down to just two candidates. “Everyone’s worried if one wins, will the supporters of the other sort of agree to support the Democratic nominee,” the Late Night host said. “Is it safe to assume that you will support Joe Biden if he is the nominee?” Ocasio-Cortez, who has been one of Bernie Sanders’ most vital surrogates on the campaign trail, did not hedge or hesitate in her answer. “Yeah, you know, I’ve said throughout this entire process that what is so important is that we ultimately unite behind who that Democratic nominee is,” she said. “And I think it’s a two-way street. I’ve been concerned by some folks that say if Bernie’s the nominee, they won’t support him—and the other way around.”“Right now, November, you know, this is more important than all of us,” she continued. “And we really need to make sure that we defeat Donald Trump at the polls—assuming, and knowing, how insane it’s going to get between now and then.” Earlier in the interview, Ocasio-Cortez addressed Sanders’ underwhelming performance on Super Tuesday, especially among the type of younger voters that she has helped energize.

And we’ve got to really, really turn up or else—you get what you fight for. And you get what you vote for. And I think it’s so incredibly important that we fight for a future that will work for us.” For more, listen and subscribe to The Last Laugh podcast. Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
