Terror Attacks Renew Calls to Declassify Infamous ’28 Pages’ of 9/11 Report
Two US presidents have refused to declassify 28 pages of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into the 9/11 attacks on the grounds of national security. But some suspect the pages may point to Saudi involvement, and in the wake of recent terror attacks, a renewed interest in those hidden documents has emerged.
Five months after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the US Congress launched a thorough investigation into the incident. While much of the 832-page report can be read by the public, the Bush administration made the controversial decision to classify 28 pages, a decision that has been maintained by the Obama administration.
The pages are available, however, to members of Congress. While those individuals are sworn to secrecy, several have come forward saying that the American public deserves to see the 28 pages.
“It gave the names of individuals and entities that I believe were complicit in the attacks on September 11,” Massachusetts Representative Stephen Lynch told KUTV. “They were facilitators of those attacks and they are clearly identified. How people were financed, where they were housed, where the money was coming from, you know the conduits that were used and the connections between some of these individuals.”
