28 pages on alleged Saudi ties to 9/11 to be released as soon as today

The long-classified pages detailing alleged ties of the Saudi Arabian government to the 9/11 hijackers will be released by Congress as early as Friday, sources told CNN Thursday.

Known as the “28 pages,” the secret document was part of a 2002 congressional investigation of the Sept. 11 attacks and has been classified since the report’s completion. It turns out there are actually 29 pages, sources said.

Sources said there are still some procedural steps that need to be taken before the release, which members of both parties in Congress and family members of victims have been seeking for years.

“This is great news,” said Jerry Goldman, a lawyer who represents families of victims in a class-action suit, seeking to sue Saudi Arabia. “The families are happy just as the American people should be happy that information that has been kept hidden for well over a decade is finally coming to light.”

Former Senator Bob Graham, who chaired the committee that carried out the investigation and has been pushing the White House to release the pages, said Thursday he was “very pleased” by the news.

    Most likely the really important information will all be black out! I have little doubt that Saudi Arabia was and is still, heavily involved in and heavily financing the liberal news media and Obama’s planned destruction of America!

    Everyone involved with the 9/11 terrorist attacks needs to be exposed along with their role in the attacks. It isn’t fair to Americans to cover up the involvement of some people/groups in this hideous event.

    If the Saudi government played a role in the attacks we need to know. I’m tired of our country supporting those who seek to harm us.
