Family members of the murdered and two survivors of the September 11 attacks wrote to Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines on Wednesday asking her to make public a 16-page FBI report of its investigation of Saudi government agents in the U.S. who helped the 9/11 hijackers.
The FBI has refused to release the report, and a federal judge in New York sided with the government in November after then-U.S. Attorney General William Barr and then-acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell broadly invoked the state secrets privilege to block the release of that report and other FBI records about Operation Encore.
“Even as we approach the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we face the painful and heartbreaking reality that our own government still has not provided us basic information and documents concerning the involvement of Saudi government agents in supporting the attacks,” the letter says. “The same is true for U.S. intelligence on how Saudi Arabia fueled the rise of al Qaeda through its pre-9/11 campaign to promote a radical, pro-jihadist, and anti-American variant of Islam globally.”
Those who signed the letter are Terry Strada and Kaitlyn Wallace, wife and child of Tom Strada, who was killed in the World Trade Center (WTC); Donald Arias, brother of Adam Arias, killed at the WTC; Sharon Premoli, severely injured in the collapse of the North Tower of the WTC; Robert Kobus, brother of Deborah Kobus, killed at the WTC; Brett Eagleson, son of Bruce Eagleson, killed at the WTC; Tim Frolich, injured in the South Tower of the WTC, 80th floor; and Christine O’Neill, widow of John P. O’Neill, the retired FBI agent who long had tracked Osama bin Laden.

We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.

Our government does not admit wrongdoing even if that wrong-doing was done on prime time TV, FFS. and the FBI and the CIA feel it is their right and their mission to lie.
