- Why was the section of Congress' Joint Inquiry into 9/11 dealing with "sources of foreign support for some of the Sept. 11 hijackers" kept secret from the public on the orders of President Bush?
- Almost 27 full pages were blanked out — an amount equal to the entire U.S. Constitution. The section, which remains sealed, reportedly quotes from a CIA memo that concludes there's "incontrovertible evidence" that Saudi government officials supported the hijackers. Why the cover-up?
- And why were the first two hijackers who entered the country received by a Saudi government agent who secured and paid for their housing and arranged flight lessons? Was he acting on his own, or on official orders? Was he, as some investigators suspect, part of an advance team sent by the Saudi consulate to meet the hijackers as they arrived in Los Angeles?
- Was it coincidence or something more that the Saudi agent's salary was increased while settling the hijackers in San Diego? Or that he was able to tap into a $130,000 "welfare" account funded by the kingdom's ambassador to the U.S.? Was money funneled through official Saudi channels to the hijackers?
- Was another Saudi agent from New Jersey, who handled the hijackers on the East Coast, also tasked by the Saudi government?
- Who ordered the massive post-9/11 evacuation of Saudi VIPs — including two dozen bin Ladens, at least one of whom had an open terror file at the FBI — without proper investigations? Why was such a request granted, given the Saudi nationality of 15 hijackers?
- Did Saudi envoy Prince Bandar make the request while he and Bush shared cigars on the Truman Balcony of the White House on Sept. 13, 2001? Did Bush's father or James Baker, who on Sept. 10 had attended a Carlyle Group conference in Washington with bin Laden's brother, intervene? What about Bandar's old racquetball partner Secretary of State Colin Powell, whose wife once received a Jaguar as a Bandar gift?
- Similarly, why was the Saudi minister of mosques allowed to escape interrogation after feigning a heart attack when FBI agents learned he'd left his Washington hotel to check into the same budget hotel near Dulles airport as the hijackers the night before they attacked the Pentagon?
- Why was an arrest warrant for the hijackers' confidante, Anwar Awlaki — who'd worked for the Saudi Embassy as a lecturer and hajj tour guide — suddenly pulled back the day before he re-entered the U.S. on a Saudi airliner? Why was this dangerous al-Qaida recruiter allowed to leave the country for good?
- Why was the Pentagon attack staged out of a mosque built by the Saudi Embassy? The fax number to the D.C. mosque, where Awlaki preached and the hijackers worshiped, turned up in a key 9/11 planner's German flat.

Investors Business Daily asks some VERY pertinent questions on the involvement of the Saudi Arabian government in the hijackings of 911.
Why has the government kept this information secret? These questions are very pertinent to the Long War, or Great War on Terror. They are, at the very least troubling to those of us who have never seen them before. I think we need to get some answers NOW.
Just what connection does the Saudi government have here? Mr. Obama, at the very least, you owe us answers. Mr. Bush, if you have concealed the involvement of another government on acts of war against this country, you have questions to be answered as well.
