INTELWIRE Releases FBI Documents Given To The 9/11 Commission

By J.M. Berger
INTELWIRE.com


INTELWIRE has obtained more than 1,700 pages of FBI documents cited in the end notes of the Final Report of the 9/11 Commission.

They reveal a wealth of new details about the hijacker's movements, possible links between the hijackers and the government of Saudi Arabia, and connections to extremist figures in the United States, including blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman.

The documents were obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. If you are reporting from these documents, please credit INTELWIRE.com and link to this page or preferably to the INTELWIRE.com home page (http://www.intelwire.com).

The package covers a wide variety of topics, including the movements of the hijackers over more than 10 years, people who associated with the hijackers in the U.S., FBI interviews with the victims, transcripts of phone calls to the hijacked flights, intelligence obtained by overseas agencies and much, much more.

Documents are listed here both chronologically and according to the chapter of the 9/11 Report in which they appeared. The package totals more than 1,700 pages and is the largest online repository of 9/11 source documents on the Web (and still growing).

Additional FOIA requests were posed to the State Department and CIA. The CIA refused the entire request, which is under appeal; the State Department is still processing documents. Those documents will also be published hereon receipt.

These documents will also be posted individually and chronologically at INTELFILES.com, with descriptive text, and additional comment and analysis as appropriate, over the next several months.

Researchers, authors and documentary producers wishing to license or commission specific research based on these documents can contact INTELWIRE's J.M. Berger through this site. A chronologically ordered package is available to researchers, including multiple copies of documents with different redactions, INTELWIRE analysis of redactions to verify the identities of specific individuals, and broad analysis of contents.

    ISIS: The State of Terror
    "Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

    "...a timely warning..."

    Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
    "At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
