You may have heard of the 28 redacted pages from the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11. They have been redacted for years, and the 9/11 families and others have been fighting for their release since the day it was announced they were redacted. According to people like former Senator Bob Graham, those pages talk about alleged Saudi Government support for the hijackers.
Recently, there was a short segment on 60 Minutes about the pages. This resulted in a much needed push for the release of the 28 redacted pages. When Obama first came into office, it was reported that he told 9/11 Family Member Kristen Breitweiser “that he was willing to make the pages public.” A few years later, according to 9/11 Family Member Bill Doyle, Obama told him “Bill, I will get them released.”
Many times throughout Obama’s Presidency, we have seen him protect the Saudis against the 9/11 Families who want their day in court. Right now, he is threatening to veto a bill called JASTA that would finally give the families that day in court.
The 28 pages were originally classified by the Bush Administration “for reasons of national security.” Obama said that “Jim Clapper, our director of national intelligence, has been going through to make sure that whatever it is that is released is not gonna compromise some major national security interest of the United States.”
We have heard from many people who have read them say that there is nothing in those pages that would affect national security. Rep. Walter Jones said “there's nothing in it about national security.” Former Sen. Bob Graham has said “they do not affect national security.”
Put them on the stand, under oath, with the idea that they will be held accountable for any lies.
For the record, Showtime's documentary was pure propaganda in my opinion designed to make them appear more human than the criminals that they are.

This brought me to tears.
Enjoy. Many thanks to the different artists.

I'm going to keep this really simple.
In response to your comment that you could personally "plead guilty" to not having imagined terrorists would use passenger aircraft as weapons→please stop lying.
As proof, I provide the "Iron Man" documents from the Asymmetrical Threats Division of Joint Forces Intelligence Command (JFIC), also known as DO5, whose task it was to track UBL from mid 1998-mid 2001.
I would first note that you were National Security Advisor to the President of the United States -- that means that you had pretty much access to anything and everything available regarding terrorist threats from groups like Al Qaeda.
Fourteen years later, everyone now knows about the summer of 2001 and the more than one dozen intelligence reports blinking red about an impending Al Qaeda terrorist attack. There was the August 6 PDB, FAA reports, CIA reports, DoD reports, and FBI reports -- all indicating and discussing terrorist cells inside the US planning attacks inside the US.
What most people don't know about is the smoking gun report from JFIC, DO5.

A new front has just opened in the campaign to declassify 28 pages on foreign government funding of the 9/11 hijackers: A White House petition, timed to correspond with increased media coverage of the issue around the upcoming anniversary of the attacks.
Its been a year since the White House directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to review the 28 pages for possible declassification. That means the review of just 28 pages of material has already taken longer than the broad-ranging and unprecedented joint congressional inquiry that produced the 28 pages in the first place. Enough is enough.
He should be arrested and investigated for the part that he had to play in the cover-ups of 9/11.
Yesterday, an attorney representing Saudi Arabia told the judge that Saudi Arabia had nothing to do with 9/11, and asked that they be dismissed as a defendant in lawsuits brought by victims' families.
Maybe if the 28 redacted pages were released, the families would have evidence enough to stop this from happening.
Demand Obama release those pages immediately.

In 2006, I had my first correspondence with Noam Chomsky about 9/11.
Almost 9 years later, I've had another correspondence. Here it is. I've done my best, and I've failed.
Hello. I'm writing to ask if your schedule has cleared up, and whether or not you're available for an interview on my show "We Were Lied To About 9/11." Again, I'm not going to talk to you about theories. I want to primarily talk about how important it is to acknowledge that we were lied to about 9/11, and how important it is for those with a voice to do their best to inform the public of that. The way it would work is, I would write out questions for you ahead of time so you can either familiarize yourself with the material or tell me you're not comfortable with a particular question and I would do away with it. Please consider. I think this would be a very important interview.

He is an award-winning former investigative reporter for The Miami Herald and Daily Business Review, and one of South Florida’s most experienced reporters. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in political science from the University of Miami.
Dan’s stories about Broward Sheriff Ken Jenne’s private business dealings sparked a federal corruption investigation that landed Jenne in prison in 2007. His stories about hidden and falsified court records in Broward, Miami-Dade and elsewhere in Florida for The Miami Herald in 2006 led to a pair of unanimous Florida Supreme Court decisions in 2007 and 2010 outlawing those practices.
