Lawyers representing families of 1,400 of the 9/11 victims say Saudi Arabia may have funded a dry run for the terror attack.

The legal team claims the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C. paid for two undercover Saudis to fly from Phoenix to the capital as part of “a pattern of both financial and operational support.”

Using FBI documentation, the team claims Hamdan al-Shalawi and Mohammed al-Qudhaeein were Saudi agents operating on U.S. soil. Trained by al-Qaeda, the pair were in contact with one of the 9/11 hijackers.

During their flight from Phoenix on board an American West jet the pair is said to have tried on numerous occasions to enter the cockpit.

“After they boarded the plane in Phoenix, they began asking the flight attendants technical questions about the flight that the flight attendants found suspicious,” reads a summary of the FBI case files.
