"I Was Absolutely Shocked At What I Read," Congressman Calls For Release Of Secret 9/11 Documents

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Late last year, I published a post titled: Two Congressmen Push for Release of 28-Page Document Showing Saudi Involvement in 9/11. Here’s an excerpt from the piece:

Since terrorists attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, victims’ loved ones, injured survivors, and members of the media have all tried without much success to discover the true nature of the relationship between the 19 hijackers – 15 of them Saudi nationals – and the Saudi Arabian government. Many news organizations reported that some of the terrorists were linked to the Saudi royals and that they even may have received financial support from them as well as from several mysterious, moneyed Saudi men living in San Diego.


Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied any connection, and neither President George W. Bush nor President Obama has been forthcoming on this issue.


But earlier this year, Reps. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., and Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., were given access to the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry (JICI) of 9/11 issued in late 2002, which have been thought to hold some answers about the Saudi connection to the attack.


“I was absolutely shocked by what I read,” Jones told International Business Times. “What was so surprising was that those whom we thought we could trust really disappointed me. I cannot go into it any more than that. I had to sign an oath that what I read had to remain confidential. But the information I read disappointed me greatly.”


The public may soon also get to see these secret documents. Last week, Jones and Lynch introduced a resolution that urges President Obama to declassify the 28 pages, which were originally classified by President George W. Bush. It has never been fully explained why the pages were blacked out, but President Bush stated in 2003 that releasing the pages would violate national security.

Naturally, the so-called “most transparent Administration in history” hasn’t declassified anything, but that didn’t stop Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY from reading them. What he saw was so incredibly disturbing he called a press conference to talk about it. This is what he had to say:

That’s three members of Congress that I know of who have come out shell-shocked upon reading this document. So why can’t the American public see it?

“neither President George W. Bush nor President Obama has been forthcoming on this issue.”

At least we know how forthcoming they have been about the domestic surveillance of the NSA.

Why would this be any different?

vegan's picture

When this comes out, everyone will know that domestic surveillance, among other ways the US has been "fighting terrorism", is a sham. As long as these 28 pages stay secret, the "war on terror" is justified.

Do you need any more evidence that 'They' do not work for 'The People'?

It's SO ridiculuous to think that our gov't would ever lie or hide anything.

We know MSM will never touch it and these guys political carreers... nay... lives... are in danger the longer we wait.

Grow a pair and tell us, Congressman!

ZerOhead's picture

That's not a bad idea either.

God help (not really) Obama and Dick... errr sorry.. Eric Holder if they try to throw him in jail to shut him up.

He'll be a national hero overnight with all the attention it will garner.

And then the rats will scurry for cover while the fingers start to point...

Fisrt he'll have to fly to China, then he catches a flight to Russia where he stays at the airport a while...

Another element of the proof that this is a nation of men, not of laws.

We're still waiting for the truth behind Pearl Harbour to be released.  IOW, not in our lifetime.

I was in New York on a business trip from Sept. 3rd through Sept. 7, 2001 and I stayed at the Millenium Hilton, which was located next to the World Trade Center Complex. On Thursday Sept 6, early evening I decided to walk across the street and go up to the observation deck at WTC2. The usual operating hours were 9:30am until 9:30pm and I felt it would be nice to see the city before heading out for the evening.

When I arrived at the lobby of WTC2, I was stopped by security and informed that the observatory was closed due to contruction repair work being completed. I replied that I understood, and walked over to WTC1 thinking I would go up to Windows on the World and have a drink, and see the city from there. Again I was stopped by security in the WTC1 lobby and told that Windows was closed due to a private function. Many people were being turned away. It was obvious on that evening no one was being allowed to the upper floors. I had been to Windows many times and never had I seen it closed for a private party. I thought the whole incident unusual and just left.

When 9/11 unfolded as I watched on TV from my office in Florida I remembered the old axiom, there are no coincidences.

Windows: Gosh I loved that place.  We used to head up there for drinks after work every other week to see and be seen. One night Sandy Weill and his entourage arrived and decided they wanted our tables next to the windows, and I told the management that Mr. Weill was welcome to join us.  Gosh I loved that place.

I blame 9/11 on Jesse Ventura.  He's such a bastard.  Bitchez.

Obama will not release the redacted pages since he's nothing by a mole for the House of Saud himself... Check-Mate...

I'm sure Congress will get to the bottom of this any day now.

When 9-11 happened the FBI was investigating hookers in New Orleans and the CIA was fucking prostitutes in Eastern Europe.  Tax dollars at work.

Saudi Arabia was funding Al Qaeda at the request of their secret best friend Israel hoping to get something like this to happen.  Israel to draw US ground forces into the shit hole and the Saudis to get the price of oil high.

Both got their wish.

Did I miss anything?  Government incompetent, played like a banjo, and the American peasants pay with blood and money for the fuck up.

One of these days the American peasant is going to figure this shit out.

Keyser's picture

The only thing you missed was the sectarian slant to the story... The House of Saud, being Sunni, had a hard-on for Sadaam, Iraq and their Sunni-Shia theocracy... This is the same reason that Iran today does not want Iraq to fall to ISIS as it will go Sunni... Strange befellows indeed, with Mossad and Saudi Arabia orchestrating 9/11, with the Bush's and the Carlyle group profitting from a manufacturered crisis to draw the US into a ME war under false pretenses... Fuckers should pay, all of them... If or when this comes out, the sheeple will just nod and it will be buried on page 27 if printed at all... The MSM are nothing but whores for the globalists as we all know...

So is there any leaked info on what might be in those pages?  I fucking demand to know.


economics9698's picture

Most likely the report details the incompetence of the FBI and CIA.  I doubt it has much about Israel but it may show Saudi financing.  I would think Israel and Saudi information would be sensitive compartmented information and not included in the report.  Most likely it is a mea culpa report about incompetence in the investigation of terrorism before 9-11.

Anyone remember this little 9/10/2001 gem from our pal Don (Rummy) Rumsfeld?


BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

To be frank, unless the redacted pages implicate Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, CIA, FBI or Mossad directly who really gives a fuck what the 28 pages say. So the House of Saud was involved, would that really surprise anybody?

crazyjsmith's picture

How about when Lloyd's of London sued Saudi Arabia in 2011 as the cause for them losing hundreds of millions over 9/11 claims. Anderson Cooper, care to ask some questions?

StormShadow's picture

If you've never heard of Rick Rescorla, please read up on him. Rick was not well known until History Channel did a documentary on him after 9/11, and even then many have never heard his story. You will be fascinated. My Dad was a career guy at Dean Witter/Morgan Stanley; Rick was head of security for many years and a hell of a guy. Rick saved a lot of people during the '93 bombing and thousands more on 9/11. I used to intern in the summers at 2 WTC, got to know a lot of good folks there, including Rick, and have made it my mission to get Rick's story out to folks. He was a true hero and a man among men. RIP, Rick.

This thread style doesn't work very well for this many replies. I have no idea who many of you are replying to. I wish it was more like Reddit with the ability to click and collapse.

I'll bet it has something to do with the re-alignment of the petro-dollar in the era of the New American Century, or at least that aspect figures in prominently.

If these congresscritters are worth their oath to support and defend the Constitution that secures the rights of the We the People, and We the People have a right to know what is and was being done in our name, then I don't care what ancillary oath they took to get access to the papers: their paramount oath is to We, the People.  And I want to know what the fuck is in those documents and I want to know right fucking now god damn it.

I am Chumbawamba.

We live in a country that claims to be free - where the truth is Confidential?
Where we have to beg our masters to tell us the truth.
Can we finally cut with the bullshit?

When we are sedated and passive enough, only then will we get the truth.
30 years maybe.

Al-Qaeda despise the royal Saud familiy because of it's cooperation with the US and because of it's the corrupt behavior and lavish lifestyle. The Sauds would rather like to frame them than fund them.

redd_green's picture

Who said Al Qaeda had anything to do with 09/11?  

GeorgeWKush's picture

Misunderstand me right. I wasn't saying that Al Qeada had anything to do with this, I was responding to economics9698 who seems to suggest that Saudi sponspred Al Qeada at the time of 9/11 when in fact it was more than a decade since bin Laden broke with the royal douchebags of Saudi Arabia.

Folks, a secret report is not required to comprehend the government is lying here.  All you need are two things...

1. Orwellian crimestop free honesty

2. A basic understanding of Newtonian physics

All the information you need is provided by a high school physics teacher who possesses #1 and #2 and didn't get high enough in the system to become a corrupt and spineless sycophant.


Start with NIST Finally Admits Freefall (after lying about it!)

~"I'm sure Congress will get to the bottom of this any day now."~

You know what is most galling, Gaius, (and you don't know just how long I've been waiting to say that!), is the idea that there is knowledge our government doesn't believe we can handle or should know about this atrocity.

Can we at least end the myth of a "War on Terror" and begin to call it the "Islamic War on the West"? When can we admit that the problem IS Islam? When does our government, instead of keeping information from us, starts seeking out those within our country who are advocates for this Islamic War on the West and a) deport them, (if foreign nationals) and/or b) deport them and strip them of American citizenship if they are citizens unless the renounce once and for all any affiliation or support for the cult of the pedophile-mass murderer pirate.

If you do find some who renounce, deport and strip them of their citizenship anyway, because of Taqiyya. Serves their arses right. Ship them straight to Mecca. They can get a pilgrimage in while they are at it.

You guys are missing the point here. Sure we all know about 9/11 but this press conference is proof that at least one congressman has not been diddling little boys and filling his NSA file with the recordings. That surprises me.

Yes, well I guess his days are numbered....

It’s not too late for him to become a team player and start diddling little boys, junior staff or interns.

And Bush, on whose watch this big event, that enabled the shredding of the US constitution, occurred, allowed members of the bin Laden family to escape? or, the Dancing Israelis?

Very few people are close to seeing the Big Picture.

Alaric, I personally know firefighters who were there (FDNY). Having served as a chief myself I agree with you as do they. There is much more to this and the perps came through my jurisdiction in a nearby state. The event was reported to the proper authorities who didn't follow up on it until a year later. I had a few choice words with the agency as to their lack of response and wondered why a woman of ME descent was involved. I "retired" shortly thereafter. Trust me that FDNY has questions and what we reported is still on the record.
