The Federal Bureau of investigation has disclosed to lawyers for relatives of those killed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack the name of a Saudi official suspected of plotting the attack. Relatives were not surprised by the name and will seek new information.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the official’s name was contained in the report 2012. Relatives of the victims have been seeking disclosure of the classified report for several years to use it for a lawsuit to help coordinate the September 11 attacks against Saudi Arabia. And now, on behalf of the President, they were given a name.
Lawyer James Kreindler said that the name was not unexpected. Now relatives of the victims will seek disclosure of more information.
According to the publication, relatives were given only a name and did not provide families with any other information, citing the “exceptional nature of the case.” The FBI noted that the positive decision was influenced by the desire of relatives to understand what happened to their loved ones and who is responsible for it. At the same time, the Bureau stressed that this is a theory of the investigation, not a statement of fact.
On September 11, 2001, al-Qaida terrorists hijacked several passenger aircraft and directed them at the world trade center in New York and the Pentagon. The victims of the attack were three thousand people.
