Families of 9/11 victims are suing the Saudi government but the US government is withholding some details because “some of the records involve equities of other government agencies or foreign governments where coordination is required for those outside of the FBI” according to Assistant US Attorney Sarah Normand, speaking in a court hearing in May.  In other words, the US government knows that Saudi officials helped some of the 9/11 hijackers but is afraid to roil US-Saudi relations by revealing the facts.  This was reported in the Washington Post today by Devlin Barrett.
