An instance where we need further investigation, and have names of individuals that should have been held accountable, but weren’t.

The 9/11 Families Wanted To See Accountability In Government

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.

Former 9/11 commission member calls for release of 28 pages in report

Former 9/11 commission member calls for release of 28 pages in report
CNN - Nicole Gaouette Tue May 24, 2016

Washington (CNN) — A former member of the 9/11 Commission called Tuesday for the public release of 28 classified pages pertaining to the attacks.

"I am strongly in favor of declassifying this information as quickly as possible," Tim Roemer told a House committee. "The 9/11 families deserve it, the American people deserve it, and justice deserves it. We have the right to transparency and sunlight -- not the darkness."

The hearing, titled "The U.S.-Saudi Arabia Counterterrorism Relationship," comes amid increasing scrutiny in Washington about Saudi Arabia's possible role in the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and a push in Congress to allow victims of terrorism to sue foreign governments linked to terror attacks on U.S. soil.

That has fueled calls for the release of 28 classified pages on the report into the attacks. The pages indicate that a network of Saudis, some in official positions, supported al Qaeda operatives in the run up to the attacks, according to some of those who have seen the documents and are pushing for their release, including former Navy Secretary John Lehman and former Senator Bob Graham.

At Tuesday's hearing, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle criticized the Saudi Arabian government for funding the spread of Wahabi Islam, a fundamentalist interpretation of the ancient religion that "teaches that apostates should be persecuted and in some cases killed," said Texas Rep. Ted Poe, the Republican chairman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on terrorism.

Poe noted that some analysts say that followers of Wahabi Islam might be more disposed to feel sympathetic to terrorist groups. And he echoed Roemer's call.

Government Minders And The 9/11 Commission

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.

Philip Zelikow, You Don't Have The Right!

He should be arrested and investigated for the part that he had to play in the cover-ups of 9/11.
