Skip to comments.FBI Report: Florida Family Had Ties to People Linked to 9/11 Attacks
Posted on 04/16/2013 8:14:49 AM PDT by kristinn
A Saudi family who fled their Sarasota area home weeks before 9/11 had many connections to individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001, according to newly released FBI records.
One partially declassified document, marked secret, lists three of those individuals and ties them to the Venice, Fla., flight school where suicide hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi trained. Accomplice Ziad Jarrah took flying lessons at another school a block away.
Atta and al-Shehhi were at the controls of the jetliners that slammed into the twin towers of New Yorks World Trade Center, killing nearly 3,000 people. Jarrah was the hijacker-pilot of United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in a field in rural Pennsylvania.
The names, addresses and dates of birth of the three individuals tied to the flight school were blanked out before the records were released to BrowardBulldog.org amid ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation.
The information in the documents runs counter to previous FBI statements. It also adds to concerns raised by official investigations but never fully explored, that the full truth about Saudi Arabia and the 9/11 attacks has not yet been told.
National security and other reasons are cited for numerous additional deletions scattered across the 31 released pages. Four more pages were withheld in their entirety.
The records cast new light on one of the remaining unresolved mysteries regarding Floridas many connections to the 9/11 attacks: What went on before the attacks at 4224 Escondito Cir., the home of Abdulaziz al-Hijji and his family?
The documents are the first released by the FBI about its once-secret probe in Sarasota. Information contained in the documents flatly contradicts prior statements by FBI agents in Miami and Tampa who have said the investigation found no evidence connecting the al-Hijjis to the hijackers or the 9/11 plot.

Any connections to the pre-911 Globe anthrax letter?
Florida Family Had Ties to People Linked to 9/11 man-made and, perhaps, harmful events.
What a coincidence. I was just thinking how nice it would be if some day we ever got a president that didn’t hold hands with or bow to a Saudi king.
“A Saudi family who fled their Sarasota area home weeks before 9/11 had many connections to individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001, according to newly released FBI records.”
Good thing we found this connection before the trail went “cold.”
Maybe they can pick up the scent if they check out the Tampa socialite. You know, the Lebanese one who had all those connections in the Middle East PLUS the gate pass and free access to the base and CENTCOM.
Thanks kristinn .. bookmark for later read.
Interesting release date. Today various officials are saying they "found no evidence" of other bombs and bombers in Boston .
I remember their houses. There were tons of black garbage bags in the subdivision house, and the gated on where expensive stuff was left as they ran for their lives.
Why release this now?
These guys “fled”, the rest were flown out while all other flights were grounded.
Now they are “trusted travelers”
What money won’t buy.
Great catch Kristinn.
Thank you for the ping.

Gee, the FBI lied about terrorist ties in Sarasota...but they want us to believe that the landlord of the hijackers didn’t pass anthrax (probably stuck on rent cash like cocaine residue) to his employer at the Florida AMI building?!
