US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The FBI accidentally revealed the identity of an employee of the Saudi embassy in Washington, who is suspected of involvement in the September 11 attacks.
Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI passed the names of a suspected Saudi official to the families of those killed in the attacks. The name of the official was contained in the 2012 report. It was pointed out that the name was transferred privately and would not be publicly disclosed.
According to Yahoo News, this is an employee of the Saudi Arabian Islamic Affairs Department and the Imam of the Los Angeles mosque, Fahad al-Umayri and Omar al-Bayumi, who are suspected of organizing terrorist attacks.
The third person who instructed them to help the hijackers was Saudi diplomat Mussaed Ahmed al-Jarrah. He worked at the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington in 1999-2000, and then at the embassies in Malaysia and Morocco.
After Yahoo News reporters pointed out the mistake, the Justice Ministry notified the court and removed the statement from public access.
All information from the FBI about Jarrah and his possible involvement is classified. The representative of the association of victims of the September 11 attack, Brett Eagleson, said that intelligence agencies are trying to hide the involvement of Saudi Arabia. The Saudi authorities deny any connection with the terrorists.
On September 11, 2001, two planes captured by terrorists crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Another plane crashed into the west wing of the Pentagon. The fourth airliner crashed near Pittsburgh. According to official figures, almost 3 thousand people became victims of terrorist attacks.
