Survivors and relatives of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks left Manhattan Federal Court on Friday furious at the Department of Justice for withholding information about Saudi Arabia’s role in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people.
The government has refused to name a key Saudi official investigated by the FBI, and has also refused to release a 16-page document they believe provides a definitive account of Saudi Arabia’s role.
“How is that transparency for families? For America?” 9/11 survivor Tim Frolich said outside of court.
“How is that acceptable? That’s the FBI and Saudis basically tied at the hip.”
