WhoWhatWhy discusses a link between the 9/11 hijackers and the Saudi Royal Family via a Saudi family living in Florida before the attacks in 2001. Evidence seems to suggest Esam Ghazzawi used his Florida home as an operational base for the hijackers, before fleeing to Riyadh just days in advance of the attacks and Ghazzawi’s extensive connections to the highest levels of Saudi power:
In early September of this year, [investigative journalists] Summers and Christensen reported that a secret FBI probe, never shared with Congressional investigators or the presidential 9/11 commission, had uncovered information indicating the possibility of support for the hijackers from previously unknown confederates in the United States during 2001.
As reported in the Herald, phone records documented communication, dating back more than a year, that connected a Saudi family then living in a house near Sarasota, Florida, with the alleged plot leader, Mohammed Atta, and his hijack pilots — as well as to eleven of the other hijackers. In addition, records from the guard house at the gated community tied Atta’s vehicle and his accomplice Ziad Jarrah to actual visits to the house. Although requiring further investigation, this information suggests that the house may have functioned as an operational base for the hijackers.
