(ANTIMEDIA) WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressmen Stephen F. Lynch and Walter B. Jones and former Senator Bob Graham were joined by families of 9/11 victims as they announced the introduction of a new House Resolution which calls on President Obama to declassify 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001. Although the final report amounts to over 800 pages, the 28 pages were classified by former President George W. Bush shortly after the report was released.
The Representatives introduced a similar resolution in 2013 and received bipartisan support. Now Jones, Lynch, and Kentucky Representative Thomas Massie have introduced House Resolution 14 which states that “declassification of the pages is necessary to provide the American public with the full truth surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001, particularly relating to the involvement of foreign governments.”
Jones said he chose to introduce the resolution “because the families deserve peace, the American people deserve the truth, and the release of these pages will not harm our national security.” He encouraged the Senate to introduce a companion resolution. Congressman Lynch said “enough time has passed that we can digest the information they contain without worrying about the visceral passions and security implications that existed in the days immediately following September 11th, 2001.”
Upon seeing the 28 pages Rep. Jones said the 28 pages would embarrass the Obama administration. Rep. Massie said while reading the documents he “had to stop every couple of pages and absorb and try to rearrange my understanding of history for the past 13 years and the years leading up to that. It challenges you to rethink everything.”
Former Senator Bob Graham spoke of the “denial of truth” coming from government officials. Graham asked, “Did these 19 hijackers act alone or did they have support?”. He said the 28-pages “point a strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier” of the attacks. When asked if he was speaking about the Saudi government or independent elements, he stated that he was referring to the Saudi Kingdom.
Graham called the refusal of the Bush or Obama Administrations to release the documents a “pervasive pattern of covering up the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 by all of the agencies of the federal government which have access to information that might illuminate Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11.”
Strada emphasized the families call for three things: Accountability, Justice, and the truth. She also called for support from Congress for the passing of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which would hold countries who fund terrorism accountable and give power to Congress to prosecute countries who fund terrorism.
Also in attendance were Sylvia Carver, sister of Sharon Ann Carver (Pentagon victim); and Abraham Scott, widower of Janice Scott (Pentagon victim).
Carver personally requested President Obama release the 28-pages, stating that “The families have a right to know the full story, we have a right to justice, and to closure.” Abraham Scott, retired Army Officer, said “I stand before you in full support of the initiative of declassifying the 28 pages as well as passing JASTA.”
BenSwann.com reported that “former Secretary of State and potential U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, ISIS has received funding from the Saudis.
Eight years after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Clinton, wrote in a cable leaked by WikiLeaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaeda, the Taliban, LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan) and other terrorist groups.”

Way past ridiculous. The same people involved in 911 are still in power over this country and have been for all those years since then. The #911 never ended in 2001! That’s why Obama and no one else in the govt will release the REAL truth. Its only obvious thugs in our country too, where not only involved back then, but still are involved even today!. How else can you explain the current funding of Islamic terrorist groups with American tax payers money? Wake up people and quit dishonoring all the lives lost in 2001, and all the lives lost to the same exact thing since 911! Their lives mattered just as much as anyone else’s does.
