Reports say the Obama administration and intelligence officials are now weighing whether to declassify the rmaining 28 pages of the congressional report on 9/11.
A number of US
lawmakers are calling on the White House to declassify documents that shed light on Saudi Arabia’s possible complicity in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The former congressmen say the 28-page classified document proves two Saudi nationals who were behind the 9/11 attacks received support and assistance from Riyadh while in the United States
Former US senator and governor of Florida, Bob Graham, said in an interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Tuesday that the US should declassify the redacted pages, which could implicate Saudi Arabia in the attacks and prove that there existed “some support from within the United States
Former US Representative and American ambassador to India Tim Roemer told “60 Minutes” the two Saudi nationals found a way to gain access to housing and flight lessons upon their arrival despite “extremely limited language skills and no experience with Western culture.”
Former US Senator Bob Kerrey who was a member of the 9/11 Commission, has read the redacted 28 pages and says he and “a solid majority of former 9/11 commissioners” believes they should be declassified.
“We all have dealt for our careers in highly classified and compartmentalized in every aspect of security,” Kerrey said. “We know when something shouldn’t be declassified…those 28 pages in no way fall into that category.”
In response to the 60 Minutes report, The Saudi embassy in Washington issued a statement dismissing the CBS News
report as a “compilation of myths and erroneous charges.”

The 28-page report is part of a larger Congressional report on 9/11 intelligence released in 2002 called the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities conducted by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
Reports say the Obama administration and intelligence officials are now weighing whether to declassify the remaining 28 pages.
US officials assert that the attacks, which killed almost 3,000 people and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage, were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists but many analysts say it was a false-flag operation and that Osama bin Laden was just a scapegoat for the US military-industrial complex.
Many analysts believe rogue elements within the US government orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to boost the US economy and advance the Zionist agenda.
