Bob Graham Interviewed About 9/11 and Saudi Arabia (Videos from 2013)
As both mimi and wendy davis have pointed out, the videos linked below are replays of interviews done several years ago. That fact was not clearly posted in the title of the videos nor in the information drop down box with each video. However, as the author of this essay, it should have been up to me to have discovered this information before posting this essay. I apologize if this essay has mislead anyone here. It was not my intention.
Below you will find the first two installments of the interview that Paul Jay of Reality Asserts Itself had with former Florida Governor and former U.S. Senator Bob Graham in 2013. The focus of the interview is the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11.
Some background first. From a personal perspective, I have long been a fan of Bob Graham whom I first met when he was a state senator. I always felt Graham was a politician with a conscience. While Graham is considered a political centrist, as governor, he was responsible for the strongest environmental legislation ever implemented in Florida. Rick Scott subsequently gutted most of the provisions of that legislation.
Graham is famous for the little notebooks he always carried with him and wrote in. Basically those notebooks were a sort of tickler file for Graham in which he would jot down appointments and meetings as well as other daily items. His notebooks are now housed at Bob Graham Center for Public Service at the University of Florida. I met Graham on several occasions and never saw him without one of his notebooks. His notebook entries once even allowed him to successfully rebut a claim made by the CIA.
Well, it turns out that Bob Graham was also supposed to have been briefed on these topics, and the CIA forwarded to him the dates of the meetings he supposedly attended. But the CIA records were inaccurate, according to his own personal records. Such was the respect for Graham’s notebooks, that this line of attack was closed within 48 hours.
Perhaps, more than any other Senator, Bob Graham had the knowledge and background into the involvement of Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 attacks. Graham was also one of the strongest voices in Congress against the Iraq invasion.
He told his fellow senators that if they didn't recognize that going to war with Iraq without first taking out the actual terrorists would endanger Americans, "then, frankly, my friends — to use a blunt term — the blood's going to be on your hands."
While Graham is still prohibited from talking about some specifics regarding Saudi Arabia's involvement in 9/11, I found these first two installments of Paul Jay's interview with him worthy of posting here. Graham has been trying for years to keep this story alive.
