Correction: The entry at www.historycommons.org says “Saudi Obstructionism,” not John O’Neill.
Hopefully you’ve heard about the partial release of the 28 redacted pages from the Joint Congressional Inquiry Into 9/11. There are still many redactions throughout the pages.
Here is an excerpt from the pages:
“A CIA report also indicates that Bassnan traveled to Houston in 2002 and met with an individual who was (redacted). The report states that during that trip a member of the Saudi Royal Family provided Bassnan with a significant amount of cash. FBI information indicates that Bassnan is an extremist and supporter of Usama Bin Laden, and has been connected to the Eritrean Islamic Jihad and the Blind Shayk;” - pg. 417
Another reason the 9/11 Commission is discredited.
Thanks to Walter Jones, Stephen Lynch, Thomas Massie, Terry Strada, and Kaitlyn Strada.
Amazing how that works.
How many people have we killed that had nothing to do with 9/11? Stop ALL of the wars NOW!!!
Newsweek article from 2002…
An instance where we need further investigation, and have names of individuals that should have been held accountable, but weren’t.
Why is it important to hold people accountable? So they don't make the same mistake again. So the next person thinks twice about repeating a mistake. Because maybe an individual will start to talk about others who need to be held accountable. If something you did contributed to the murder of 2,976 people, then you should be held accountable for your actions. Period. You should NOT be rewarded and promoted.

A collection of statements from the September Eleventh Advocates (“Jersey Girls”) since the time of the 9/11 Commission:
They have made many more.
There were so many warnings, and so many indications that this Government knew attacks were coming. We need access to Bush's PDBs among a multitude of other things.
What I believe to be an extremely important piece of information.
Kevin Fenton's article on the subject:
The 9/11 Family Steering Committee Website:
It should be noted that when al Thumairy was interviewed by the 9/11 Commission, there were Saudi Government Minders present. I don’t know if that’s true with the other Saudi interviews, but it most likely is. I wonder how intimidating they are.

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.
