Ranking Democrat Tom Daschle received multiple phone calls from Cheney telling him not to investigate 9/11.

 

“It is true that the vice president has requested on several occasions that we not have an investigation into this issue.”

-Senator Tom Daschle (Press briefing, 17:30), May 16, 2002

 

 

Here’s what the investigation found, and was immediately censored by the Bush White House–for 14 years:

In reviewing FBI documents and the CIA memorandum, the Joint Inquiry Staff has examined information suggesting that:

  • One individual who provided assistance to Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar may be connected to the Saudi Government. A second indivicual who may have been in contact with al-Hazmi and Al-Mihdhar also has ties to the Saudi Government, including connections to the Saudi Ambassador to the United States. There is reporting in FBI files that persons have alleged that both of these individuals may be Saudi intelligence officers;
  • The September 11 hijackers may have been in contact with other Saudi Government officials in the United States prior to the September 11 attacks, and
  • Saudi Government officials in the United States may have ties to Usama Bin Ladin’s terrorist network.
