Former Chief of Counterterrorism Operations for the CIA Vincent Cannistraro said, regarding assistance from the Saudis in tracking the perpetrators of 9/11: ” ‘We’re getting zero cooperation now… There is a whole pile of Saudi businessmen who have been providing regular contributions to Al Qaeda.’ …Cannistraro said he believes the amount of money flowing from there to Al Qaeda is, ‘at a minimum, tens of millions a year. That’s a bare minimum… The amounts of money from Saudi businessmen going to the Al Qaeda organization accounts for much of the resources the Al Qaeda has.’ ”
