White House: No evidence of Saudi role in 9/11

Published: Updated:

US intelligence officials have finished reviewing 28 classified pages of the official report on the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States and they show no evidence of Saudi complicity, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Friday.

"It will confirm what we have been saying for quite some time," Earnest told reporter during a daily White House briefing.

The 28 pages that will be sent to the U.S. Congress on Friday contain no new evidence that Saudi Arabia played a role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Earnest said.

Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Abdullah al-Saud, said in a statement: “We hope the release of these pages will clear up, once and for all, any lingering questions or suspicions about Saudi Arabia's actions, intentions, or long-term friendship with the United States.”
