The phone numbers found with a senior al-Qaeda operative captured six months after the 9/11 attack suggest ‘indirect’ links to a US-based company associated with Saudi prince Bandar Bin Sultan.

Pakistani anti-terror forces captured Aby Zubaydah a nom de guerre for Zayn al-Abidin Muhammed Hussein, in an overnight raid. Aby Zubaydah was a recruiter for the terror group and one of Osama Bin Laden’s top aides.

14 years after Zubaydah was apprehended, newly declassified information from a 2002 congressional report on the 9/11 attacks, dubbed the “28 pages,” reveals an indirect link previously hidden from the American public between the alleged al Qaeda operative and a company associated with a key member of the Saudi royal family, former Saudi Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan.

Ever since 19 men — 15 of them Saudi nationals — hijacked four airplanes and changed the course of American history, the possibility of official Saudi involvement has hung over the relationship between the two countries.

The connection to Bandar was made through Zubaydah’s phone book, retrieved during the Pakistani raid in which he was taken. In it, the FBI found numbers linked to the United States, including an unlisted number for a company that managed Bandar’s estate in Aspen, Colorado. An unlisted number was also found for a bodyguard who worked at the Saudi Embassy in Washington.

We already know about Saudi and ISrael involvement. Question is, what will the US do? NOTHING. It is too scandalous and will cost too much money and oil deals and economical losses and a possible 3rd world war if Israel and Saudi Arabia were alienated from the US. Why you think Israel openly demolish palestinian houses, Israeli soldiers kill people and bully children and old people in wheelchairs, and IDF killed masses of them last summer 2014 without the US doing a single f*****g thing?

“Ever since 19 men — 15 of them Saudi nationals — hijacked four airplanes and changed the course of American history, the possibility of official Saudi involvement has hung over the relationship between the two countries.” This is worthy of the Cartoon News Network reporting. The wild tale of people taking lessons in flying Cessnas hijacking airliners ( and passengers talking on cell phones in midair before that utility was enabled ) identified quickly and positively from burned and exploded wreckage that was never forensically examined included another little fly in the ointment. I’ll let Len Hart tell that tale… Read more »

You forgot something : the goal of ANY mudjahishit is world domination and in fact, you won’t be quiet until you submit ot finish them. Let it be clear : they HATE everything that is not their belief and even other muslim sects so a sunni islamist wil be wanting to eradicate the shias as a shia islamist will want to eradicate sunnis. The quotes of s**t-Laden are pure Taqqiya : he was in Sayeed Qutb nasty writting. Nasser should have hanged Qutb much sooner… In fact, we shall support anyone the mudjashits hate and whoever is willing to strongly… Read more »
