Saudi Gov't May Have Funded 'Dry Run' 2 Years Prior to 9/11

The Saudi government may have funded a “dry run” of the 9/11 attacks, new evidence from a federal lawsuit against the Saudi Arabian government has revealed. The New York Post reports, the evidence allegedly shows two years before the attacks, the Saudi Embassy paid for two Saudi nationals posing as American students, to fly from Phoenix to Washington “in a dry run for the 9/11 attacks.”

Attorneys representing 9/11 victims said al Qaeda and the Saudi government had a close relationship and the Saudi government may have been funding the attacks from early on -- including testing cockpit security.

The new evidence also allegedly shows the two Saudis that carried out the “dry run” had trained at al Qaeda camps.
