New questions have been raised about Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks after it was revealed that an envelope from the Saudi embassy in Washington was found containing the flight certificate of an Al-Qaeda operative.
The flying certificate for Ghassan al-Sharbi, who reportedly took lessons alongside some of the 9/11 hijackers, was included in a cache of documents hidden by the operative in Pakistan. The certificate was kept inside an envelope from the Saudi embassy in Washington, DC.

The certificate and other documents buried by al-Sharbi were found when he was captured in Pakistan in 2002 and subsequently sent to Guantanamo Bay.

The discovery of the certificate was disclosed in a 47-page work report which was compiled for the FBI in 2003. It was written by two US investigators, Dana Lesemann and Michael Jacobson, examining the possible roles of foreign governments in the attacks.

“Why did Ghassan Al-Sharbi bury a cache of documents near where he was staying in Pakistan, including an envelope from the Saudi Embassy in Washington, DC, containing his flight certificate from Embry Riddle University in Phoenix?” the investigators wrote in the report.

Although the report was declassified by the US government in July 2015, it was only after activist Brian McGlinchey discovered the document and published its details online this week that it was brought to the public’s attention, The Mirror reported. McGlinchey dubbed it as ‘Document 17’.

“The envelope points to the fundamental question hanging over us today: to what extent was the 9/11 plot facilitated by individuals at the highest levels of the Saudi government?” McGlinchey said after discovering the report.
