Sarasota Saudi Family Hosts 9/11 Attackers, then Disappears

This home at 4224 Escondito Circle in Sarasota apparently hosted the 9/11 attackers, and was abandoned two weeks before the attacks.
TAMPA (2011-9-8) -

Almost ten years later, a new link has been discovered between Florida and the 9/11 attackers.

Two of the hijackers, including mastermind Mohammed Atta, appear to have visited the home of a Saudi family in Sarasota. And phone records link people in the house to several terrorism suspects.

Just two weeks before the attacks, that family abruptly abandoned their luxury home, according to reporter Dan Christensen of the Broward Bulldog.

"There was a new car in the driveway, there was food in the fridge, like they were still there, but nobody was physically there anymore," he said.

"The safe was open, empty of whatever had been in it, and the people simply had vanished."

Christensen says he hasn’t been able to contact the family, but sources tell him they flew back to Saudi Arabia before the attacks.

Former Florida Senator Bob Graham is upset that he was never told about the Saudi connection. Graham led a Congressional investigation into the attacks, and says the Bush Administration has suppressed information about Saudi Arabia’s role.
