FBI agent who worked on 9/11 investigation says two Saudi hijackers had US-based support

A former FBI agent who worked on an investigation into the 9/11 attacks says two of the hijackers likely had help in the US.

Danny Gonzalez was involved in the still-classified FBI investigation ‘Operation Encore,’ which looked into two of the hijackers living in San Diego before the attacks, and whether they had help.

He says he believes the attackers had relied on a US-based support network.

The revelation comes on the heels of an executive order signed Friday by President Joe Biden, directing the Department of Justice to declassify some documents related to the attacks at the behest of families and survivors affected by the tragedy on the eve of its 20th anniversary.

The families are suing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for what they believe was the country’s official involvement in the attacks, and say the documents could provide evidence in the suit.

The kingdom has denied it had anything to do with the attacks. Fifteen of the 19 September 11 hijackers were Saudi citizens.

Some of the records flagged for release include those pertaining to ‘Encore.’
