(RepublicanDaily.org) – The 20th anniversary of the devastating 9/11 attacks of 2001 occurred this year, but bereaved families are still seeking the whole truth of what happened that day. Many have long suspected that the Saudi government acted to obscure its citizens’ role in the attacks. The FBI recently declassified a large number of documents related to the case.
On Wednesday, November 3, the public got its first glimpse at the new trove of evidence. It details lengthy investigations the FBI carried out into potential links between Saudi officials and the 9/11 attacks. This release follows the unveiling of a document two months ago detailing support two of the Saudi hijackers received after initially landing in the US.
The released documents contain details of that support and the investigation into three Saudi nationals who provided it. One of these was an official at the Saudi Embassy in America. The FBI wanted to determine whether any of the three had prior knowledge of the attacks but ultimately could not drum up enough evidence to charge any of them.
NEW: Newly-declassified docs on Operation Encore's inquiry into potential links between Saudi officials & 9/11 hijackers show the FBI concluded this year that it "has not identified additional groups or individuals responsible for the attack."@DCExaminerhttps://t.co/qg2Y2m8gHp

For those still seeking the truth of what happened on September 11, 2001, this development is doubtless a step in the right direction. Sadly, however, they appear to be some distance away from full closure.
