9/11 Families ask DOJ Inspector General to probe FBI mishandling of key evidence; ‘Innocent explanation is not believable’ – Florida Bulldog

A missing videotape of two 9/11 al Qaeda hijackers partying in Southern California with a suspected undercover Saudi agent. Records of interviews with key witnesses and phone records among 9/11 co-conspirators that have vanished from FBI files. An unredacted copy of a joint FBI-CIA Intelligence Report about Saudi Arabia’s 9/11 involvement that’s nowhere to be found.

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Inspector General has been asked to investigate the FBI’s apparent mishandling of such critical 9/11 evidence by more than 3,500 victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

“The Inspector General should examine whether one or more FBI officials committed willful misconduct with intent to destroy or secrete evidence to avoid its disclosure,” says the complaint, filed by James Kreindler, a lead lawyer for the 9/11 Families who are suing Saudi Arabia in federal court in New York. “Given the importance of the missing evidence at issue to the 9/11 investigation, as well as the repeated mishandling by the FBI of that evidence, an innocent explanation is not believable.

“It appears that the motive for these acts was to hinder review of the FBI’s 9/11 investigation and avoid embarrassment of the FBI for its failure to pursue cases against the terror co-conspirators who provided critical support for the 9/11 hijackers. In 2004, the FBI provided Congress with incorrect testimony concerning the support network for the 9/11 hijackers. Rather than fix that record and face the consequences, one or more FBI officials chose to impede production of the evidence that would reveal the agency’s mistakes,” the complaint says.

According to the seven-page complaint addressed to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the FBI “lost, hid or destroyed” a videotape that showed “Saudi agent, Omar al-Bayoumi, hosting a party in San Diego for two 9/11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar shortly after their arrival in the U.S.” in January 2000.

The hijackers stayed at Bayoumi’s apartment for several days as Baymoui assisted them with banking and living arrangements. He also introduced them to Anwar Al Aulaqi, a San Diego imam, radical jihadist and alleged al Qaeda recruiter.
