The Biden administration has declassified a 16-page FBI report tying 9/11 hijackers to Saudi nationals living in the United States…
While the Commission was largely unable to tie the Saudi men to the hijackers, the FBI document describes multiple connections and phone calls.
BTW @SenFeinstein headed the commission

Years ago, the Commission wrote that when it came to the Saudi diplomat Fahad al-Thumairy, "We have not found evidence that Thumairy provided assistance to the two hijackers."

A decade later, it appears FBI agents came to a different
conclusion. The report says Thumairy "tasked" an associate to help the hijackers when they arrived in Los Angeles, and told the associate the hijackers were "two very significant people," more than a year before the attacks.…
The report also casts new light on the meeting of a Saudi government employee with the hijackers in a restaurant. What was once portrayed as a chance meeting is now painted as a preplanned, well orchestrated event.
The 2004 9/11 Commission had described the Saudi employee, Omar al-Bayoumi, as "gregarious." Investigators wrote that they found him "to be an unlikely candidate for clandestine involvement with Islamic extremists."
New report says a witness to the meeting saw Bayoumi waiting by the window for the hijackers to arrive rather than running into them by chance, and engaged in a lengthy conversation with them. Bayoumi was often saying…
the Islamic community "needs to take action," and
that the community was "at jihad."

Bayoumi was in "almost daily contact" with a man with ties to the mastermind of the WTC attack, and spent the night in a hotel with another man connected to one of Bin Laden's sr lieutenants
Thumairy's phone, meanwhile, was linked to people associated with the "Millennium Plot Bomber," who was convicted in a plot to bomb the Los Angeles airport on New Years Eve 2000.
While the report does not draw any direct links between hijackers and the Saudi Arabian government as a whole, Jim Kreindler, who represents many of the families suing Saudi Arabia, said the report validates the arguments they have made in the case.

The first call was prompted by Milley’s review of intel sug the Chinese believed the US was preparing to attack. That belief was based on tensions over military exercises in the South China Sea, and deepened by Trump’s belligerent rhetoric toward China.…
Milley went so far as to pledge he would alert his counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack, stressing the rapport they’d established through a backchannel.

I think he might be in trouble if true

Milley, chosen by Trump in 2018, believed the president had suffered a mental
decline after the election, the authors write, a view he communicated to House Speaker Pelosi in a phone call on Jan. 8. He agreed with her evaluation that Trump was unstable, according to a call transcript.

Believing that China could lash out if it felt at risk from an
