Summarizing ‘The Missing 28 Pages’: Who Was Behind 9/11?

While in the United States, some [at least two] of the September 11 hijackers [Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi] were in contact with, and received support or assistance from …

Omar al-Bayoumi. … FBI files suggest that al-Bayoumi provided substantial assistance to hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi after they arrived in San Deigo in February 2000. Al-Bayoumi met the hijackers in a public place shortly after his meeting with an individual at the Saudi consulate and there are indications in the files that his encounter with the hijackers may not have been accidental. During this same time-frame, al-Bayoumi had extensive contact with Saudi Government establishments in the United States and received financial support from a Saudi company affiliated with the Saudi Ministry of Defense. According to the FBI files, [redacted] at the company said that al-Bayoumi received a monthly salary even though he had been there on only one occasion. This support increased substantially in April 2000, two months after the hijackers arrived in San Diego, decreased slightly in December 2000, and stayed at the same level until August 2001. That company reportedly had ties with Usami Bin Laden and al-Qa’ida.

He and his wife have received financial support from the Saudi Ambassador to the United States [Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud] and his wife. … The report states that during that trip a member of the Saudi Royal Family provided Bassnan with a significant amount of cash.

Shaykh al-Thumairy.

Also according to FBI documents, the mosque was built in 1998 from funding provided by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Abdulaziz.
