Under tremendous pressure from the 9/11 victims families, a few courageous members of Congress and LaRouchePAC, who has championed this story since 2009, the House and Senate Intelligence Committees have finally made public a redacted version of the classified 28 pages of a Joint inquiry which detail Saudi involvement in the September 11, 2001 attacks. These pages, kept hidden from the American people for 15 years, must now be the beginning of a de novo, top-down investigation into the 9/11 attacks and subsequent cover-up. Let this victory be the beginning of a new paradigm of truth and accountability in the U.S. Ever onward! Become a member of LaRouchePAC today!
9/11: Ten Years Later
Declassify the 28 Pages
It’s not a secret that the Saudi Royal family is very close to the Bushes. In fact, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, former Saudi Ambassador to the U.S., whose role in 9/11 is highly questionable, is known to many as “Bandar Bush.” Perhaps the Bush Administration blocked the release of the 28 pages to defend the KSA, whom they view as a close family friend, a business partner, and political ally. There may be some truth to that. Why then, has the Obama Administration continued the cover-up? While campaigning for president in 2008, Obama promised 9/11 family members that he would finally declassify the 28 pages that dealt with who sponsored the attacks. Then again, in February 2009, when a delegation of 9/11 families visited the White House, Obama made a promise to Bill Doyle, whose son died in the WTC, that he would personally see that the 28 pages be declassified. However, just three months later, on May 29, 2009, Obama ordered Solicitor General Elena Kagan, later an Obama appointee to the U.S. Supreme Court, to file a brief urging the courts to prevent the 911 families from suing Saudi government officials or members of the Saudi royal family on the grounds that they enjoyed sovereign immunity. To this day, Saudi Arabia, the world’s leading financier of fundamentalist jihadi madrassases, is considered one of the United States’ closest allies.

“The connection is a direct one. Not only has Saudi Arabia been promoting this extreme form of religion, but it also has been the principal financier, first of Al Qaeda, then of the various Al Qaeda franchises around the world—specifically the ones in Somalia and Yemen— and now the support of ISIS…I believe that had the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 been disclosed by the release of the 28 pages, and by the declassification of other information as to the Saudi role and support of the 9/11 hijackers, that it would have made it much more difficult for Saudi Arabia to have continued that pattern of behavior, and I think [we] would have had a good chance of reining in the activity that today Canada, the United States and other countries either are or are considering going to war with.”
