Let’s Talk About A Possible 9/11 Cover Up

“If one were to suggest that there are still questions that remain regarding the September 2001 terrorist attacks, they would be called a conspiracy theorist. If you were to go so far as to suggest that there was an obvious cover-up involved, which withheld information from the public at large that made clear connections between the attacks and a planned, state-sponsored act of war, some would call you delusional.”

The passage above is excerpted from a portion of recent commentary I provided on this subject, discussing elements that, when given only a cursory glance, are capable of arousing interest, suspicion, and disgust all at once. The title of this post, however, features a string of words I hadn’t expected to catch myself writing at any point soon… ever, perhaps. And yet, according to a number of reliable sources, there may in fact be a “smoking gun” after all, pertaining to the most horrid act of terrorism ever to occur on United States soil.

There’s little need for talk of an inside job, nor the idea of foreknowledge of an attack (the latter being a position I’ve certainly questioned) in order to see that the entire story about September 11, 2001, has yet to be told. The question, however, is whether we would still call it purely an act of terror once–or if, I should say–the whole truth were to be revealed. 


A recent article appearing in the New York Post discussed the work of Paul Sperry, an author who, like many others, including congressmen and civilian researchers, believe that there may be evidence of a Saudi connection to the terrorist attacks of September 2001.

“The Saudis deny any role in 9/11,” Sperry writes, citing a CIA memo that purportedly references “incontrovertible evidence” that elements within the Saudi government “helped the (9-11) hijackers both financially and logistically. The intelligence files cited in the report directly implicate the Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks, making 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war.”

The investigative report, commissioned by Congress, contained a 7200 word redacted portion that was allegedly ordered to be removed by then President George W. Bush, and while specific information about the redacted portion of the document has not–and cannot, presently–be discussed, the evidence based on certain information that has been leaked already seems to point to a Saudi connection with the terror plot that brought down the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001:

President Bush inexplicably censored 28 full pages of the 800-page report. Text isn’t just blacked-out here and there in this critical-yet-missing middle section. The pages are completely blank, except for dotted lines where an estimated 7,200 words once stood.


Bob Graham, a former U.S. Senator from Florida, has championed the cause for reinvestigating the possible Saudi ties to the 9/11 plot, having authored a book on the subject, along with several articles, and having conducted numerous interviews on the subject. He notes that, despite the fact that the 9/11 Commission failed to include substantial information about the Saudi connection in its report, Dr. Philip Zelikow, who had served as executive director during the investigation, has changed his mind in recent years, based on forthcoming evidence:

Despite the carefully orchestrated campaign to protect our Saudi “friends,” ample evidence of Saudi Arabia’s intimate ties to al-Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks has come to light. The executive director of the 9/11 Commission, Dr. Philip Zelikow, stated in 2007 that while at that time he did not feel the evidence established “Saudi government agents,” were involved “there is persuasive evidence of a possible support network…”

The “evidence” includes a number of dumbfounding connections between Saudi officials operating in the United States prior to the attack, as well as strange departures carried out shortly afterward. Among these, perhaps most damning were the meetings between two of the hijackers, shortly after their arrival at LAX, with Omar al-Bayoumi, a man presumed to be a Saudi intelligence agent operating in the United States at the time. The three supposedly met in a restaurant, by chance, on the day the hijackers arrived; however, experts have pointed out that al-Bayoumi had allegedly driven more than 40 miles to reach the restaurant where the chance-meeting transpired. Of equal suspicion had been the suspected meeting on the night before the attacks between three hijackers and Saleh Hussayen, who had left one hotel already, and moved (rather conveniently) to a second hotel where the trio had been staying. When questioned about this later by the FBI, Hussayen allegedly faked having a seizure during the interrogation, after which he was taken to a hospital, found to be perfectly healthy, and was subsequently released by the FBI. Again, no mention of this convoluted incident made its way into the 9/11 Commission’s report.


Despite the strange circumstances that have have already managed to arouse suspicions about a Saudi connection to the attacks, the lingering possibility of confirmation which the redacted 7200 words might offer is tantalizing, to say the least. The question, however, is would that information, kept hidden away since the early years of the Bush administration, really be worth the risk of releasing now… even under the pressure from government officials pressing for truth? Perhaps most importantly, if that information were to be released and confirmed, would questioning so-called “alternative” narratives as to what occurred in 2001, even in the light of new evidence, still be relegated to the realm of being  mere “conspiracy theories”?

    “Alternative theories” about controlled demolition, missiles at the Pentagon, Bush taking delivery of a truck filled with a billion dollars of gold, Jews receiving forewarning, holographic planes, etc. are clearly delusional.

    The idea that the Saudis may have provided hidden aid to the hijackers is perhaps true and perhaps not. But it’s certainly not delusional, and is likely enough that I’m not sure it even counts as a “conspiracy theory,” at least not in the Jesse Ventura “You’ve got to be a little bit nutty to believe it.” sense.

    Like most people, I prefer more transparency in government, and hope we hear more about this possibility.

    Well, wrong engine recovered from site, clue one. No bodies and plane ID still in use meaning, no planes. Not a single bone of those in the building when it collapses ?. Taken!. With clever disinfo, no wonder groups went around in circles for years and will never figure it out until. They look into the “impossible” stuff. Most of the answers are beyond standard science but it does not mean there is no “other sicence”!. You do not know what you do not know period. Says it all.

    Just listening to the end of the show. Can’t wait for next year. You guys make me laugh out loud, think differently and to maintain an open mind. Happy New Year to you all! Corey

    Of course, none of the details you cite are true, but what mostly interests me is what you mean by “beyond standard science.” I don’t have a clue what you mean by that. The crashes were somehow supernatural? In what way? I thought I had heard every odd allegation out there. But I seem to have missed this one. Could you be more specific about what was beyond science on 9/11? Thanks!

    Doesn’t pay to delve into this subject. Either you’re called a fool or a traitor for following where the facts seem to lead.

    Something that I find suspicious was that the Patriot Act, a massive piece of legislation that impacted most of all those who did not attack the USA (her own citizens), was so swiftly produced by the administration and then approved by Congress with barely a glance. Almost 350 pages of legislation…

    I understand concepts like contingency plans, but the PA goes far beyond that, and it is absurd that it impacts most of all American citizens.

    So, in response to Micah’s article above, I would have to say, yes, in some aspects at least, there is/are conspirac(y|ies) involved with the events of 9-11.
