FBI ‘Mistakenly’ Releases 9/11 Bombshell In Court: Key Saudi Diplomat Who “Tasked” Hijackers Named


It’s being called “a complete government cover-up of the Saudi involvement” according to 9/11 victims’ families who are in a lengthy ongoing lawsuit seeking to expose Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks and US efforts to cover it up.

A new bombshell has been dropped which the families of victims are hailing a huge success: FBI court documents inadvertently left a key Saudi embassy official’s name unredacted, revealing one of the government’s most sensitive secrets regarding the September 11 attacks and state sponsorship.

Yahoo News exclusive reveals, based on what has since been admitted as “a giant screw-up,” the identity of “a mysterious Saudi Embassy official in Washington who agents suspected had directed crucial support to two of the al-Qaida hijackers.”

Ironically the ‘accidental’ release of the information was related to filings by Attorney General William Barr and acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell to get information pertaining to the kingdom’s role in the attacks permanently banned from public access, citing the usual “state secrets” and national security concerns.

The FBI mistakenly revealed the identify of a top Saudi embassy official who had continuing direct contact with individuals involved in running the Los Angeles al-Qaeda terror cell which produced some of the hijackers: his name is Mussaed Ahmed al-Jarrah.

Al-Jarrah was an official diplomat of the Saudi foreign ministry and embassy in D.C. who oversaw Ministry of Islamic Affairs employees at Saudi-funded mosques and Islamic centers throughout the US from 1999 and 2000. Crucially he’s been revealed as a key “link” between the Saudi government and the Los Angeles cell, specifically two terrorists which went on to fly a plane into the Pentagon.

The Yahoo News report describes the huge significance of the Al-Jarrah revelation as follows:

Fahad al-Thumairy, a Saudi Islamic Affairs official and radical cleric who served as the imam of the King Fahd Mosque in Los Angeles and Omar al-Bayoumi, a suspected Saudi government agent who assisted two terrorists, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, who participated in the hijacking of the American Airlines plane that flew into the Pentagon, killing 125.

After the two hijackers flew to Los Angeles on Jan. 15, 2000, al-Bayoumi found them an apartment, lent them money and set them up with bank accounts.

A redacted copy of a three-and-a-half page October 2012 FBI “update” about the investigation stated that FBI agents had uncovered “evidence” that Thumairy and Bayoumi had been “tasked” to assist the hijackers by yet another individual whose name was blacked out, prompting lawyers for the families to refer to this person as “the third man” in what they argue is a Saudi-orchestrated conspiracy.

That “third man” is newly revealed by the FBI ‘mistake’ as Al-Jarrah — believed to have “tasked” intermediaries to assist some among the 9/11 hijackers.

Current and former FBI officials speaking on anonymity have said that top leaders at the bureau have sought to quash this whole investigation from the start. “There were definitely people at FBI headquarters who wanted this closed,” one former official told Yahoo.

The report continues:

Relatively little is known about Jarrah, but according to former embassy employees, he reported to the Saudi ambassador in the United States (at the time Prince Bandar), and that he was later reassigned to the Saudi missions in Malaysia and Morocco, where he is believed to have served as recently as last year.

Jarrah has been on the radar screen of the lawyers for the 9/11 families for some time and is among nine current or former Saudi officials who they suspect have important information about the case and have sought to either question them or get access to FBI documents that mention them.

The families have also tapped former agents to help investigate the activities of the potential witnesses, including Jarrah. 

Jarrah “was responsible for the placement of Ministry of Islamic Affairs employees known as guides and propagators posted to the United States, including Fahad Al Thumairy,” according to a separate declaration by Catherine Hunt, a former FBI agent based in Los Angeles who has been assisting the families in the case. 

Hunt conducted her own investigation into the support provided to the hijackers in Southern California. “The FBI believed that al-Jarrah was ‘supporting’ and ‘maintaining’ al-Thumairy during the 9/11 investigation,” she said in her declaration.

A spokesman for the 9/11 families whose father was killed in the attacks, Brett Eagleson, said of the Jarrah revelation that ultimately it confirms a Saudi chain of command behind 9/11 which goes direct to the Saudi embassy in D.C.

An ‘indirect link’ between Prince Bandar and an al-Qaeda suspect is revealed in a 9/11 investigatory report. Al-Jarrah reported directly to Prince Bandar, who later became Saudi intelligence chief and kingdom’s national security council head.

“It demonstrates there was a hierarchy of command that’s coming from the Saudi Embassy to the Ministry of Islamic Affairs [in Los Angeles] to the hijackers,” Eagleson said.

And no doubt there’s still a mountain of evidence kept secret by the US government concerning the real 9/11 story. At this point we’re still surely at the mere tip of the iceberg as the official narrative continues to unravel even by the mainstream media’s belated admission (whereas in prior years any critical approach to official Washington’s 9/11 mythology got one dismissed as ‘conspiracy theorist’ and ‘truther’ etc..).

Given the 9/11 lawsuit driven by victims’ families is nowhere near finished, it is likely to slowly chip away and wrest more damning information from the feds.

  1. No doubt what I have to say about 09/11/01 and a Cape Cod Connection leading up to 09/11/01 will rock you to the core to say the least.

    I left this discussion all over the place but for public reading too, here at:


    This account links three people, one being me directly to the terrorists beginning in 1984.

    To say I’m sorry isn’t enough, but to say you deserve nothing less than the truth, is fact.

    I’m also leaving it here for you to read in full.

    by Bruce Springsteen

    ‘Neath a crown of mongrel trees
    I pulled that bothersome thread
    Got down on my knees
    Grabbed my pen and bowed my head
    Tried to summon all that my heart finds true
    And send it in my letter to you
    Things I found out through hard times and good
    I wrote ’em all out in ink and blood
    Dug deep in my soul and signed my name true
    And sent it in my letter to you
    In my letter to you
    I took all my fears and doubts
    In my letter to you
    All the hard things I found out
    In my letter to you
    All that I’ve found true
    And I sent it in my letter to you
    I took all the sunshine and rain
    All my happiness and all my pain
    The dark evening stars
    And the morning sky of blue
    And I sent it in my letter to you
    And I sent it in my letter to you
    In my letter to you
    I took all my fears and doubts
    In my letter to you
    All the hard things that I found out
    In my letter to you
    All that I found true
    And I sent it in my letter to you
    I sent it in my letter to you

    The song “Letter To You” has become my theme song, my anthem since yesterday. Here’s why.

    I’ve written to many a national newspaper and television today since yesterday.

    Please, accept this, as “warped” as this may seem, I care for this community, for no doubt, his music speaks. To a new year for all of us.

    A Cape Cod Connection To Pre-September 11, 2001

    Leaving you this is probably for the greater good, but know, I’ve approached Bruce Springsteen through his publicity company, Shorefire Media earlier today.


    This is for you in hopes you on my behalf will allow Bruce Springsteen to read this. To say anything of the following, it’s sensitive to the point of in my opinion, to this day classified intelligence of September 11, 2001. It undeniably directly involves loved ones and myself, forever binding us as to three people who had direct first hand input into the madness that became September 11, 2001.

    So why tell Bruce? If anyone on this planet speaks to me, he does, no one but him, musically and no doubt as a person I’ve only come to know through true accounts. At best, this presents a challenge to speak of a real account to him, and I ask you to give him this okay? What is my goal, to get a story told by none other than himself, he of whom in my humble opinion is probably the only person capable of grasping this into a story.

    BMI & ReverbNation,

    I can understand and accept the success of “Merry Christmas To You” and without going into the details only to say, I paid for the attention.

    Over the holidays I recorded no less than 150 cover songs, vocal and harmonica. Just over 100 are now on my Reverb artist page. Let me say for the record, they are not my original material. No plans to charge for the music are made by me at all. BMI will not allow me to register them too. I did this because I needed to do something good for my fellow citizens and friends worldwide, please accept that and let me have the songs, all covers on your servers. To say the least, to have to take them down would be a travesty.

    I’m also going on record to let you know in the coming weeks there will be a video made, nearly unrelated to my musical career but from my perspective, entirely intertwined. To grab your attention, if anything will. This video will involve the identity of someone I know and have known all my life. This person is directly responsible for of all things, putting the idea of using jets against America on 9/11/01 to the attention of the #1 terrorist. Both my aunt and uncle in law were in the middle east before the madness began and effectively put it in Bin Ladens head. Does that tell you something? Very few, if only maybe a dozen worldwide including me know this persons identity. But if you look at my page, in the photos, there is a book cover and unmistakably that cover, speaks droves of information that of my opinion is demanded to be known. The book got the CIA’s attention and it was released summer 1984. I hope you can accept that, after all it’s your servers. For the record, that person is my ex-wifes direct blood relation, her mothers sister. As for me, I’ve got a prescient, precognitive song “Prelude To September 11, 2001 – Leonda (I’m Coming Home)” from two full weeks ahead of 09/11/01 that is accepted worldwide as the only piece of music to speak in advance of the tragedy. It weighs on me as the biggest ticket of my entire life, for better or worse. It’s on your servers.

    So with that said, as over the top, unexpected and perhaps hard to believe as that is, now you know. Be prepared for anything.

    For the record, I’m not a happy man. Probably why family is distant and scattered and no doubt why I am single. Today I tried getting into the party of the New Years, KISS in Dubai. All that sat on my mind is this whole sorted seriousness that seemingly is left largely unknown to the general public. What do I stand to gain? Fame? Movie? Maybe, but all I hope to gain is acceptance of the truth, no longer keeping a secret to myself, telling people who deserve the full truth, who else but the people who did not deserve to lose life September 11, 2001. I feel bound to owe this to you, nothing less than the truth, however delicate it leaves us. Once in the open, maybe I’ll find solace and ease of soul, maybe not but I feel a personal wreck being involved in all this. I gather only Bush felt more personally responsible, and is why I look up to him. As for my ex-in-laws, I”m left largely in the dark to as their real emotions but know if they ever sought to object, they’ve never once spoke up to this day leaving me to feel as if they trust me.

    Bruce speaks to me, for me unlike anyone on this planet. If you haven’t read the bombshell I left in another post here, “Protection”.. For me to fantasize of uncapping my emotional self on his creative human approach, is reasonable I suppose. Who better than Bruce? If anything, only a release about all that done none other than by me, would be better but I feel this is way too much for my simple self to handle. No doubt for Bruce and you to realize the sheer magnitude of what I’ve got to say, the story I don’t see in the press, that should be. I’m no thrill seeker, but damn, the truth needs to be unforgivably, undeniably, full brutally unchecked truth, naked to those who most deserve it. Can anyone of you say you knew in full anything about 9/11/01? I can and so can my ex-lin-laws. To be brief, those two backed by the CIA single handedly and with some help put the very idea of using jets against America into Bin Ladens head. Hard to believe? It’s nothing short of the headline grabbing truth. I was there, with them but not in the middle east like those two. We knew a book we all spoke of in summer 1984 had the potential to be exactly as it became. 20 Saudi & Pakistani Islamic state terrorists hijack a jet with a bomb and trash DC. That book, went to the middle east, that book became the center point of Bin Ladens insanity. Flight 93 is that book. My song two weeks in advance of 09/11/01 is the entire annunciated day in full. Cryptic but to say the least, I’m stuck with this for life, I can’t say it’s right I can’t say my friends Janet & Chris are right. To say we are hunted is an understatement. This brief story you read here is exactly what Bush was and who he was learning from in my opinion. Every word coming from us, as civilians, as I am to this day was in the CIA’s reports long time ahead. Did you know that? NO you did not now you do. Do you want answers? I hope you do. You’re getting in a video, a testimonial I’m making by myself entirely. The book I speak of is known as “The 40 Minute War” by Janet & Chris Morris and the cursed highlights are at http://www.goodreads.com Bruce, I’m downloading the November 22, 2005 show and why? Because you speak for me in ways that I can’t thank you enough for. Bruce, whether you go on record to even acknowledge my presence or not, is it to much for me to think you haven’t heard of me? I’ve been hinting at this story in rec.music.artists.springsteen of GoogleGroups.Com and GreasyLake.Org long before 09/11/01. Is it too much for me to assume you did? I reside to believe you have. I only hope you can make sense to me to speak to me. Of all people, maybe you can get through to me, personally, your music has.

    January 2, 2021.

    I sit here this morning thinking, remembering what got me to do the things I have. Who has influenced me. I remembered to myself, exactly who has. I also sat here wondering could anyone hear me think? I’ve heard Janet many a time. But that is entirely human spirit, nothing more nothing less. In front of a computer no less. I’m remembering my “Mr. Miyagi” my best 80 year young friend did something that from one perspective, flies disrespectfully in the face of his Jewish heritage. But, to let you know what he did and why he did, surely at the least, tells you he did what anyone who loves his people and his country would do. He became a Army medic. Is that so much? No, but it’s the mission he took with maybe 6 other soldiers into South America that is the meat and potatoes here. He dressed as did his fellow soldiers, in Nazi SS uniforms and hunted Nazi’s in South America. He told me this when I was a toddler. Coming from him, I believe him. Considering he is a do anything for you kind of kind, patient, humble man that he is, never once drinking or smoking in his adult life, never once starting a fight outside the military, it’s hard to imagine that as a soldier, he went south and did things that get people put on anti-psychotics for, violent over the top yet necessary behavior as he did. Is he on anti-psychotics? As I understand him, his life, his health and his routine to be, it’s a fair assessment to say he is but this is something he’s suggested at but never once coming right out to say. From his faith, of peace and the actions he described to me as nothing short of borderline inhumane, brutal slaughter of someone we know to have killed himself in Germany, well, understand, it’s most likely countless peoples dream to have killed Hitler and that is his claim to fame, as I understand it. He has gone on record to deny it and rightfully so. It puts him in danger and does complete in the face of recorded history rebuttal to facts that may very well seem believable. But to say, I’ve seen in the Usenet the headshot photos of Richard in a Nazi SS uniform is I hope undisputed facts. Do you begin to understand me at all? For what I’m going on record to say about myself with 20 terrorists from near sundown September 10, to sunup September 11, 2001 is on the border of unbelievable. To be brief, via internet relay chat, at first 20, then 19 were in a chat room with me. Did I know this? Up front, I took the possibility that their conversations that I was reading was to say the least, real, they were speaking of their mission and at times, I took part in discussion as a player, not as a unwilling participant. That makes me out to be a traitor in my eyes and I’m going on record to say, I did that only to get the full story out of them, nothing more, nothing less. Was I fully prepared to consider they’d pull that off? Did I stop to say to myself, “time to tell Janet & Chris Morris, the police etc”. How do you begin to do that while being possibly being taken for a freak of a liar and starting a tale that no doubt could get me arrested for lying of a terrorist plot? But to say the least, it is what I was reading in full before my eyes. To say they knew exactly to get this open, who, what, where, when, why and how to the fullest extent, an understatement. They were talking of all things, passenger lists and exactly the intended targets to the descriptive points of exactly where, the floors, the buildings, the approach, every minute detail. That is terrorism at its peak and I am saying I had at that point never been exposed to such anything, not even Hollywood movies could prepare me for this. I was merely a citizen that had in my opinion, got into something way over my head. I’m also saying these terrorists were speaking of global events that are still coming true to this day. That type of talk makes Nostradamus seem, tame to an extent. To say they weren’t tapped into the upcoming conscious of the world in a way that is biblical beyond the scope of reality to comprehend, is at best my reality. As intricate as DNA and more, their details of for example, who world leaders would be such as Trump into Biden, in 2001 tell me they were compelled in their sense of rational mind to do this to us as unavoidable, it had to be done, perhaps not entirely out of hatred of which they certainly had but of a rational that if they didn’t do this, the worlds future would be forever altered. Did they see greater good coming from tragedy? To put this in perspective, no pain, no gain, Not even my wife, who was in the bedroom laying bed was aware of this. If anything, she could hear me typing quickly all night long. Someone did manage to see my computer screen come dawn and even managed to take a photo of only the names including mine, of which wasn’t my real name at all. Shane Kelly waltzed in with a disposable camera and took several photos of myself and the computer. I’ve only seen via the Usenet, the computer monitor. The only proof that I am aware of that this conversation took place is due to Shane. I totally got rid of the hard drive and had wiped it completely at first. I cleaned the router/modem and memory too. For all intent purposes, M2 Technologies Inc. when they went to peer into my computer all they saw was a new installation of Windows XP and identified a new hard drive. As for the terrorists and their copies of the chat? What became of their computers, reports are the feds have them in some varying degrees so that leaves room for the possibility, they have what I got rid of. I almost do regret getting rid of that but I feel had I kept that, sure it could’ve put M2 Technologies Inc. on a map that would cement us as the bonafide go to’s in the intelligence world to say the least. It also meant that I’d be keeping Satan’s work entirely. Do the feds have this? I’m believing they do and I’m as about the only person your going to hear that from but I leave open the possibility, the terrorists made this known before they sealed their fate with Allah. In my mind, there is no doubt Richard Brown left his mark on me and for that, if you can believe this, I am entirely grateful and indebted. For the record, the hard drive sat in the closet for almost a month before being taken out in the trash and left to the incinerator. Do I remember the conversation? Yes I do and to say, at times, life is “been down this road before” meets Deja-vu is an apt description.
