9/11 Terrorist: Saudi Prince Paid 9/11 Hijackers’ Flight Lessons

9-11 saudi prince


A terrorist serving a life sentence in prison on terror charges following the 9/11 attacks in the US said a member of the Saudi Arabian royal family helped finance the plot.

Zacarias Moussaoui, 46, has filed court documents in the US stating an unnamed Saudi Prince paid for himself and the 19 terrorists who hijacked planes in the September 11 attacks to take flying lessons prior to the attacks, The Daily Mail reported.

The Telegraph said that “Zacarias Moussaoui recently wrote to federal courts in New York and Oklahoma, claiming he can offer inside information about the inner workings of al-Qaida to boost legal claims that the government of Saudi Arabia and financial institutions supported terrorism.”

“The prince was assisting me in my terrorist activities … and was doing so knowingly for Osama bin Laden,” he said.

The Saudi regime has denied any involvement in 9/11 and Moussaoui’s credibility has been questioned.

His credibility also has been clouded by his record of changing his account of his involvement in the 9/11 plot and his erratic behavior in court.

Moussaoui is serving his life term without parole at a maximum security prison in Colorado.

“Some lawyers have taken him seriously enough to interview him at the Supermax federal prison in Colorado. But other observers are skeptical, saying it could be a desperate grab for leniency or relevancy,”The Telegraph reported.

“Even if he somehow got to the point where he could testify, there would be a credibility issue,” said Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law. “Would his testimony be valuable? That’s doubtful.
