On September 5, 2012, Broward Bulldog filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit in federal court in Fort Lauderdale against the Department of Justice and the FBI.
The 25-page FOIA complaint seeks records of an FBI investigation involving a Saudi family, former residents of Sarasota, who may have provided aid or assistance to the 9/11 hijackers.
Broward Bulldog Editor Dan Christensen and 9/11 authors Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan are also pursuing what’s known as a Mandatory Classification Review of 28 pages that were censored from the report to the nation by Congress’s Joint Inquiry into the terrorist attacks. Those pages involve “specific sources of foreign sources of support” for the hijackers while they were in the U.S.
Key documents from the Mandatory Declassification Review and FOIA cases are below.
