Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are trying to get Obama to declassify 28 pages of secret documents that detail the Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks. If a country that is allegedly our ally was involved in the worst terror attack ever on US soil, we might just want to do something about that. Ya think?
Some lawmakers have seen those pages. North Carolina GOP Rep. Walter Jones and Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch are two that have read the report and they say what they saw was shocking. As long as the documents are kept classified neither one can divulge what they read. That is why they are leading the way in the fight to get the documents unclassified, so that we know who we should be watching out for.
Retired Sen. Bob Graham, a former Senate Intelligence Committee chairman is speaking up in favor of declassifying the documents. He also knows the content of those 28 pages. Said Graham:
“The Saudis know what they did. We know what they did.”
We know that 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. What we need to know is who financed them and was the Saudi government complicit or did they at least turn a blind eye to the plot? This is all useful information.
Lynch and Jones just continue to push, knowing that the report could have a major effect on our policies and our relationship with Saudi Arabia. After all, would we want to sell fighter jets to a country that attacked us? The case has been made by both republicans and democrats that Saudi money also fights terrorism, so we don’t want to rock the boat. The Saudis supplied money to the Egyptian military to overthrow the Muslim Brotherhood. I say if they attacked us, we should just take their money and we can finance freedom out of that. (But not until Obama is gone)
