At a conference sponsored by the Florida Bulldog Thursday night in Davie, Florida, the audience heard a chilling account of the terrorist attack on the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001—and the coverup of those events— from Sharon Premoli, who worked on the 80th floor of the World Trade Center North Tower on the day of the attack and who barely survived that day; from Sen. Bob Graham, the Chairman, in 2002, of the Joint Congressional Committee that investigated the 9/11 attacks; from Sean Carter, one of the attorneys representing the 9/11 families suing the government of Saudi Arabia and others involved in the attack; from Bulldog founder Dan Christensen, and from Tom Julin, the attorney for the Bulldog who is litigating the groundbreaking Freedom of Information Act suit that could lead to the disclosure of some 80,000 pages of government documents about the investigation of hijackers and their supporters in Sarasota, FL. The panel was the first time that such a group gathered in one place. Among the points made was the necessity for Congress to pass immediately, the JASTA bill that would allow the 9/11 families to sue the government of Saudi Arabia.
The Bulldog is the independent investigative news agency that conducted a breakthrough investigation of the Saudi hijackers who lived in Sarasota prior to 9/11, and who had connections to a Saudi couple who suddenly fled the United States two weeks after the attacks. The panel discussed how the FBI withheld thousands of pages of documents relating to the hijackers and the mystery Saudi couple, and how the FBI never even informed the official Congressional Committee investigation of the existence of these documents. Graham, the Senator and former Governor of Florida disclosed how he was ordered by a high level FBI official to never call a Florida FBI who he was trying to question about the hijackers activities. Graham spoke at a Washington, D.C. forum just several weeks ago, urging the passage of JASTA so that the families could pursue the Saudi role in court, as is their right under U.S. law.
The compelling presentation by Ms. Premoli, who is a leading activist for the 9/11 families, was delivered by voice recording, reported the Miami Herald, which wrote: “She detailed how she escaped from the building and how a police officer gave her his oxygen mask. ‘The ground rocked and the roar from the clouds was indescribable. My lungs were packed with dust. My legs were rubber when I realized I was on top of a bloody body. I don’t know the name of the police officer or fire fighter but I owe them my life.'”
