If anyone knows where the skeletons are buried contradicting the
official 9/11 narrative then it's none other than alleged terror
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
Journal and others report that he's ready to spill the beans on
Saudi Arabia's involvement in the worst terror attack to ever take
place on American soil as part of a victims' lawsuit seeking damages
from the kingdom as a state sponsor.
A letter filed in the US District Court in Manhattan disclosed an

As Al Jazeera
noted, however, it's as yet,
"unclear if US
President Donald Trump, who is close to the leaders of Saudi
Arabia, would allow a plea deal for Mohammed to give evidence."
Fein, former US associate deputy attorney general, explained of
the high stakes that,
"If the plaintiffs
win in this case, it could be hundreds of billions of dollars."
"You have over 3,000
plaintiffs, compensatory plus punitive damages and a jury very
hostile to Saudi Arabia, it could virtually bankrupt Saudi

The victims' lawsuit has
been slowly moving forward for years, especially after Congress in
2016 passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA),
allowing US citizens for the first time to sue a foreign state if

September 11 attacks, but which had
remained hidden from public view
since the report's completion and was the only section to deal with
the question of a state sponsor, was a huge milestone in further
uncovering Saudi complicity.
The missing 28 pages from the 9/11 report began as follows:
"While in the United

Sheikh Mohammed's crucial testimony could fill in key details
surrounding what Saudi Arabia knew of the plot beforehand, and in
what ways its intelligence facilitated it.
Or his testimony could
also open up entirely new avenues previously undiscovered.

notes, we could still be a long way out from
According to the
letter, the plaintiffs’ lawyers have been in contact with
lawyers for five witnesses in federal custody about their
availability for depositions.
The lawyers said three, including Mohammed, are housed at the
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba detention camp, where they face capital
charges, while two are at the “Supermax” maximum security prison
in Florence, Colorado.
According to the letter, Mohammed would not agree “at the
present time” to be deposed, but that could change.
Ultimately, a lot of
delicate issues, not the least of which is the
administration's approval of a plea deal to spare the death penalty,
would have to fall in line before Mohammed starts testifying.
One person familiar with
the case, but who remained unnamed, cited in the WSJ report said the
families hope to gain the alleged terror mastermind's
