New 9/11 document reveals no smoking gun of Saudi complicity
WASHINGTON - Saudi officials hope the release of top secret pages of an early congressional inquiry into 9/11 will end allegations about Saudi complicity in the attacks.
Those who pushed for Friday's release of the last chapter of the 2002 congressional report say it's only the beginning.
The document says the hijackers received help from individuals who "may be" connected to the Saudi government, but offers no definitive proof.
The foreign minister for Saudi Arabia, Adel al-Jubier, says the document should end suspicion about Saudi Arabia's role.
But the co-chairman of the congressional inquiry, former Florida Sen. Bob Graham, remains convinced that the hijackers had an extensive Saudi support system with links to government officials.
Graham also says he hopes the release will lead to the disclosure of more documents.
