Kristen Breitweiser’s husband was killed in the twin towers on 9/11. She is one of the 4 women, “The Jersey Girls,” who have wanted a clear accounting of the events of 9/11 while the government of the USA seems to have very little interest in understanding what happened.
Breitweiser appears to be strongly convinced that the Saudi’s were behind 9/11. (She is not mentioning the Israeli connections. Recall that a good deception, just like a good spy novel, must have multiple layers.)
She points out the hypocracy of several US officials expressing outrage against Saudi Crown Prince Saudi Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) at this time while previously being unwilling to investigate her husband’s death on 9/11 citing the risk of unintended harm to the USA-KSA relationship.
She points out that it was the Obama White House who supported arms sales to KSA and seemed to have little concern for hundreds of thousands of Yemeni citizens killed by US made and KSA delived bombs over the last 3 years. Yet suddenly, key US government insiders have found moral outrage.
She also talks about Khashoggi as MUCH MORE than a “journalist.” He was a personal friend of Osama bin Ladenand lived with him for several years.
To start, a person should read the Chicago Tribune article from 2004 that talks about Jamal Khashoggi being recruited by Adel Batterjee historycommons.org/entity.jsp?entity=adel_abdul_jalil_batterjee in the 1980’s to get the “scoop of a lifetime.” That assignment was to go with Batterjee to Afghanistan and hang-out with the CIA/Saudi mujahideen fighting against the Soviets. The article is long and very well-researched. I highly suggest you take the time to read it because it details very clearly and specifically why and how Jamal Khashoggi knew so much about al Qaeda, the CIA, the Saudis, and much of the financing, funding, and organizing of Bin Laden that led to the 9/11 attacks. www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-0402220496feb22-story.html
Next, I would encourage you to read some of Jamal Khashoggi’s opinion pieces from the Daily Star.
Khashoggi writes about financing of terrorism networks.

Also, please note that in one of the leading books written about the 9/11 attacks, Lawrence Wright’s, “The Looming Tower,” Jamal Khashoggi is portrayed by Wright as a “friend” of Bin Laden. Khashoggi is not a “journalist” who reports on bin Laden. Rather he is described as Osama Bin Laden’s friend. And the Bin Laden/Khashoggi friendship apparently spans more than a decade—from Afghanistan, to Pakistan, to the Sudan.
He was also friends with the head of Saudi Intelligence for 20 years….
…. Jamal Khashoggi was closely connected to Prince Turki al Faisal. Prince Turki was the head of Saudi intelligence for more than 20 years. Interestingly, he resigned from his post 10 days before 9/11. Probably more interestingly, Turki is the man who allegedly brokered the deal with Bin Laden back in 1998 where, in exchange for money and support, Bin Laden would not attack the Saudi Royal Family.
…the timing of Khashoggi’s disappearance when taken in connection with the 9/11 Families’ litigation. Last Friday, something very notable happened in the 9/11 litigation against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. For the first time ever, the Department of Justice stood on the side of the 9/11 Families and publicly committed to finally releasing three large tranches of formerly secret documents that we believe connect the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the 9/11 attacks. This is the biggest development we have had in our over 16 years of litigation.
And she wonders
Why would Jamal Khashoggi willingly go to the Saudi Consulate in Turkey—especially given his alleged sour relationship with Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman? What would inspire him to go there?
