    An interesting report on Saudi involvement with 9-11.

    No doubt the 28 pages are nothing.

    Top secret "28 pages" may hold clues about Saudi support for 9/11 hijackers - CBS News
    Current and former members of Congress, U.S. officials, 9/11 Commissioners and the families of the attack's victims want 28 top-secret pages of a congressional report released. Bob Graham, the former Florida governor, Democratic U.S. Senator and onetime chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, says the key section of a top secret report he helped author should be declassified to shed light on possible Saudi support for some of the 9/11 hijackers. Graham was co-chair of Congress' bipartisan "Joint Inquiry" into intelligence failures surrounding the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, that issued the report in 2003. Graham speaks to SteveKroft for 60 Minutes report to be broadcast Sunday, April 10 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

    Q: What countries are implicated in the report?

    A: According to former Senator Bob Graham, “The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11 and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier.”

    It’s not clear if other countries are also implicated in the 28 pages. While the unclassified introduction to the 28 pages refers to plural “sources” of foreign support, it’s not clear if “sources” refers to multiple countries or instead to multiple individuals or entities within a single country. The language of H.Res.14 does include a reference to plural “governments.”

    I wonder how many references to G' Dubya' are in those 28 pages? Words of gratitude from the family of Saud in extricating members of the Saudi Royal Family from American soil in the immediate wake of the 9/11 terrorist actions?

    President George W. Bush meets with Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi Ambassador to the United States, on August 27, 2002, at Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

    “There’s nothing in it about national security,” Walter Jones, a Republican congressman from North Carolina who has read the missing pages, contends. “It’s about the Bush Administration and its relationship with the Saudis.” Stephen Lynch, a Massachusetts Democrat, told me that the document is “stunning in its clarity,” and that it offers direct evidence of complicity on the part of certain Saudi individuals and entities in Al Qaeda’s attack on America. “Those twenty-eight pages tell a story that has been completely removed from the 9/11 Report,” Lynch maintains. Another congressman who has read the document said that the evidence of Saudi government support for the 9/11 hijacking is “very disturbing,” and that “the real question is whether it was sanctioned at the royal-family level or beneath that, and whether these leads were followed through.” Now, in a rare example of bipartisanship, Jones and Lynch have co-sponsored a resolution requesting that the Obama Administration declassify the pages.
