US Government Releases Redacted "28 Pages" Missing From 9/11 Report

Tyler Durden's picture

Unleash the revisionist history. Congress released on Friday a long-classified report exploring the alleged ties of the Saudi Arabian government to the 9/11 hijackers.

The missing 28 pages from the 9/11 report begins as follows:

"While in the United States, some of the September 11 hijackers were in contact with, and received support from, individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government..."

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. As CNN reports, former Sen. 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" that the documents would be released.

The pages, sent to Congress by the Obama administration, have been the subject of much speculation over what they might reveal about the Saudi government's involvement in the attacks masterminded by terrorist Osama bin Laden when he led al-Qaeda.The pages were used by the 9/11 Commission as part of its investigation into the intelligence failures leading up to the attacks.

A telephone number found in the phone book of al-Qaeda operative Abu Zubaida, who was captured in Pakistan in March 2002, was for an Aspen, Colo., corporation that managed the "affairs of the Colorado residence of the Saudi Ambassador Bandar," the documents show.

Osama Bassnan, who the documents identify as a financial supporter of two of the 9/11 hijackers in San Diego, received money from Bandar, and Bassnan's wife also got money from Bandar's wife. "One at least one occasion," the documents show, "Bassnan received a check directly from Prince Bandar's account. According to the FBI, on May 14, 1998, Bassnan cashed a check from Bandar in the amount of $15,000. Bassnan's wife also received at least one check directly from Bandar."

The top two members of the House Intelligence Committee cautioned that much of the information in the newly released pages were not "vetted conclusions."

"It’s important to note that this section does not put forward vetted conclusions, but rather unverified leads that were later fully investigated by the Intelligence Community," said Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. and the committee chairman, in a statement. "Many of the Intelligence Community’s findings were included in the 9/11 Commission report as well as in a newly declassified executive summary of a CIA-FBI joint assessment that will soon be released by the Director of National Intelligence."

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the panel's senior Democrat, said he hopes the newly released pages will reduce the continued speculation over Saudi involvement. "I hope that the release of these pages, with appropriate redactions necessary to protect our nation’s intelligence sources and methods, will diminish speculation that they contain proof of official Saudi Government or senior Saudi official involvement in the 9/11 attacks," Schiff said in a statement. "The Intelligence Community and the 9/11 Commission...investigated the questions they raised and was never able to find sufficient evidence to support them.  I know that the release of these pages will not end debate over the issue, but it will quiet rumors over their contents — as is often the case, the reality is less damaging than the uncertainty."

Actually, a quick skim of the report indicates precisely the opposite.

The 9/11 Commission did not actually write the newly released pages. Instead, the pages were part of the material the panel reviewed. The commission's chairmen have described the pages in the past as information based almost entirely on raw, unvetted material received by the FBI and handed over to House and Senate intelligence committees in 2002 as part of an earlier investigation of 9/11.

Current and former members of Congress have been calling for the pages to be declassified and released for more than a decade.

The 9/11 Commission concluded in its report that senior Saudi officials did not knowingly support the terrorist plot to attack the United States. The panel also found "no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded" al-Qaeda.While the 9/11 Commission found no evidence that senior Saudi officials were involved in the 9/11 attack, the report did criticize the Saudi government for tolerating and sometimes fanning the flames of radical Islam by funding schools and mosques around the world that spread extreme ideology. The report also noted that some rich Saudis gave money to charities with terrorist links.

To be sure, what the report does provide is much circumstantial evidence that the Saudis were most certainly involved in 9/11, sufficient to convince any rational man, but perhaps not enough to launch a lawsuit against, say, the King.

The Saudi government itself has repeated called for the pages to be made public so that it can respond to any allegations, which it has long called unfounded.

"We've been saying since 2003 that the pages should be released," said Nail Al-Jubeir, director of communications for the Saudi Embassy, ahead of Friday's developments. "They will show everyone that there is no there there."

Moments after the release, Saudi Arabia has already issued its prepared press release:

Here are some real-time annotations of the report:

 

The infamous Prince Bandar is also named:

While we have yet to read the full document, one section caught our eye - the use of Saudi "charitable organizations" to finance terorrism:


And then this:

That names sounded familiar, and then we remembered this WMD article:

The lawmakers noted Huma Abedin “has three family members – her late father, mother and her brother – connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations. Her position affords her routine access to the secretary and to policymaking.” Last week, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner, who admitted he hadn’t read the letters, defended Abedin, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called the accusations “sinister” and “nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant.”

 

* * *

Now it has emerged that Huma [Abedin] served on the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs’s editorial board from 2002 to 2008. Documents obtained by author Walid Shoebat reveal that Naseef served on the board with Huma from at least December 2002 to December 2003.

 

Naseef’s sudden departure from the board in December 2003 coincides with the time at which various charities led by Naseef’s Muslim World League were declared illegal terrorism fronts worldwide, including by the U.S. and U.N.

 

The MWL, founded in Mecca in 1962, bills itself as one of the largest Islamic non-governmental organizations. But according to U.S. government documents and testimony from the charity’s own officials, it is heavily financed by the Saudi government.

 

The MWL has been accused of terrorist ties, as have its various offshoots, including the International Islamic Relief Organization, or IIRO, and Al Haramain, which was declared by the U.S. and U.N. as a terror financing front.

 

Indeed, the Treasury Department, in a September 2004 press release, alleged Al Haramain had “direct links” with Osama bin Laden. The group is now banned worldwide by United Nations Security Council Committee 1267.

 

The MWL in 1988 founded the Al Haramain Islamic Foundation, developing chapters in about 50 countries, including for a time in Oregon until it was designated a terrorist organization.

 

In the early 1990s, evidence began to grow that the foundation was funding Islamist militants in Somalia and Bosnia, and a 1996 CIA report detailed its Bosnian militant ties.

 

The U.S. Treasury designated Al Haramain’s offices in Kenya and Tanzania as sponsors of terrorism for their role in planning and funding the 1998 bombings of two American embassies in East Africa. The Comoros Islands office was also designated because it “was used as a staging area and exfiltration route for the perpetrators of the 1998 bombings.”

 

The New York Times reported in 2003 that Al Haramain had provided funds to the Indonesian terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah, which was responsible for the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people. The Indonesia office was later designated a terrorist entity by the Treasury.

 

In February 2004, the U.S. Treasury Department froze all Al Haramain’s financial assets pending an investigation, leading the Saudi government to disband the charity and fold it into another group, the Saudi National Commission for Relief and Charity Work Abroad.

 

In September 2004, the U.S. designated Al-Haramain a terrorist organization. In June 2008, the Treasury Department applied the terrorist designation to the entire Al-Haramain organization worldwide

In other words, the US government knew about this terrorist front all the way back in 2001, even as Hillary's right hand (wo)man was working for an affiliated entity for years later?

We hope to find out more after reading the full document shortly, although sadly we are convinced the important sections will be fully redacted.

perhaps the most important unanswered question. Why now?

AnonG-Man's picture

Why now, Citizen?  The answer to that is Classified for National Security Reasons.  Any other information has been burned, long since "lost," or will remain hidden for decades.

Like the so called investigation/report findings on JFK, RFK, MLK - the truth would be too much for children's (citizen's) eyes.

The top of the building never decelerated as it literally fell through an otherwise exploding building.

That's far worse than using a pool stick to strike a cue ball and not feel the contact on the pool stick.

It has never happened because it can't happen.

The same holds true for the "pile drive" theory - it is a 100% lie that is trivial to disprove applying Newton's Third Law.

Yeah but... all you twoofers are just tin foil hat wearing nut jobs who wanted to spoil Christmas by telling everybody Santa doesn't exist. ;)

Oh, I know Santa exists because he's brought me many presents in my life, and he even signed his name on the packages.

All Risk No Reward's picture

Well, Santa exists, but you didn't quite spell it right (the letters are right, though) he doesn't do what you were told he does...

And he inspired people to seize the Money Power to create a debt-money system that surreptitiously bankrupts entire planets, super empowers his minions, and enriches them so they can execute his agenda across the world during his age of influence.

This banking cartel with illicit relations to all nations , the one that few seem to know exists, appears to be depicted as a woman, which fornicates with all nations (illicit relations), riding a Roman Empire beast system (Nero's number is 666, Nero represents the empire) that doesn't tend to pay people who don't work according to their agenda (financial fraud, war mongering, etc...) such that it becomes difficult for its opposition to "buy or sell."

Truth is stranger than fiction - and it isn't even close.

Well, I think I have the perfect solution to this debate.

Lets just build another tower to the exact same specs and fly a plane into it, and just see what happens. .gov is just begging for things to piss away money on, the construction industry could use the work and it will be the ultimate lab experiment. Of course it could be some real trouble for those saying it was all rigged, if in fact the building did fall as we all saw. And it would be even MORE trouble for others if it did not....which is why it will never happen. As both buildings fell, we know it wasn't a fluke, so it should be a pretty good test....that will never happen.

This study may be as close as we can get in the near future to an empirical determination.

Oh they discovered that this was the first steel frame high rise in history to suffer from a fire related failure. Come on now, there has to be a first time for everything right?

The cognitive dissonance presented today can cause any thinking citizen's head to explode. Look how much B.S. we have to just "ignore" because we have no power to legally prevent those who lie, cheat and steal as members of the deep state. The state is indeed so powerful now, ruin awaits any ordinary citizen who stands against them. Even a simple game of Simon Says with your local law enforcement agency can mean death if you are too slow to respond.  Of course you deserved to die because you didn't move fast enough, sheesh..you might have had a gun, you might have killed me. 14 Nations already have laws on the book criminalizing holocaust deniers, except for that pesky 1st amendment, denying 9/11 would be criminal too. A heinous hate crime punishable by death, of course. 1984 too a few more years to implement, but they are just about there.

Do you waste time debating whether a cue ball can be hit with a pool stick without the person hitting the cue ball feeling the reaction in the pool stick?

Do you debate whether 2+2=4 or 5, Winston?

I don't think you comprehended the magnitude of the information contained in my original thread post.

The debate is truly over. The Debt-Money Monopolist narrative of collapse is provably false to 100% certainty.

Why do you think they manipulated the scope of the 911 investigation to the "initiation of collapse?" In order to avoid this inconvenient truth.

THEY KNOW!

I like the debunking explication of building 7. ( which surely did take some structural damage the fires were meaningless to collapse). Wherrin an off center alleged failed column ... Down in the middle of the building...caused the topmost portion to begin collapsing first (very easy to see on the video)... Into its own footprint, evenly, at near freefall.

I mean, thats why the government didnt even try to 'splain it.

The Mossadniks had wired it, and when the plane over PA that was supposed to hit building 7 crashed (shot down without any doubt at all - none) they had to pull it anyway.

If they took down 7 with explosives, they took down the others- all 3 being those owned (or leased) and controlled by Zio Silverstein and Zio Lowy (Lowy is a chief guy).

But the best evidence is the norad stand-down, in my book.

The same day exercises, the lack of response after the first tower, probable backdoor in the software used to create ghost planes (maybe... Why would you ever use Israeli tech ever??) the absences of key geberals, and inexplicable promotions later.

ry dawson does excellent work on it all on a shoestring budget. Chris Bollyn too.

Vatican_cameo's picture

There was no plane crash in PA, the building was wired with explosives from the beginning.  Building 7 was the most structurally sound building in NYC.  I was built for the Secret Service and was deem "Bulletproof & Bombproof".  It just took a lot of little bombs inside to destroy it.  If you look at the video of the plane crash in PA, the reporters showed up to a large furrow in the field.  They asked where the plane was, and they were told "It vaporized upon impact".  The only pieces recovered was an I.D. from a Flight attendant, a Hotel reservation card and a red bandana.  That's it.  They tested the ground and there was no trace of jet fuel at the sight.  They didn't even try with that one.

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

Nah they found debris a mile or so away... It was shot down and the jet fuel exploded/burned in seconds, the wreckage losing forward momentum and crashing to the ground. There were, I believe, some witnesses who reported seeing a plane fire a missile.

I agree that an intact plane could not have possibly hit that ground.

It was shot down likely because the hijackers were overpowered. Cant have them alive. building 7 too would have been wired ahead of time and seems plausible that a plane was supposed to hit it, too, likely to destroy what was contained therein... Zero way a plane makes it to the white house which is well protected air D wise.

Btw - funny how so much 'jet fuel' survived the initial explosions, no? Thats a neat trick... Must've been unicorn fuel

Oh, and what Debt-Money Monopolist (DMM) financed governments are allies with the Saudi Arabian government?

Isn't that all Western nations, but especially the DMM financed British government and intelligence services and the DMM financed American government and intelligence services?

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

Yeah, well, let me explain the missing piece of the puzzle to you.  Saudi Arabia and Israel are in fact great friends.  Buds.  Pals.

The House of Saud are reputed, in Iraqi military intelligence circles at least, to be Crypto-Jews.   Wahhabism is easily the most virulent form of Islam, and most closely associated with Saudi Arabia, not to mention financed and exported by Saudi Arabia.

So now you know why there is a 'civil war' within Islam, and why Saudi Arabia and Israel get along great!

All Risk No Reward's picture

Hi Herd, and WHO do you think finances and, therefore, CONTROLS Israel's government?

The Debt-Money Monopolists (DMM). The same people that control the British government, the US government, and the "You're-a-peon" government.

So, no, it isn't the Israeli's acting independently because their government is a vassal to the Debt-Money Monopolists that finance it.

If you learn one thing from the life of Napoleon, this is it...

“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”

Hello!?  Congress?  Lame-stream Presstitutes?

 

p.s. You know, it's a real shame and an unfortunate 'accident', that so many of DOD'S files and Finance staffers got destroyed/killed, with the 9/11 attack on the Accounting/Finance section of the Pentagram, and the free-fall collapse of WTC-7 (two buildings away from the Twin Towers, with the building in between remaining standing to this day), where all these records and people were located.

Please don't apply logic, reason and science in explaining the events of 9/11... the emporor's new clothes look fine and dandy and all the normal people agree.

Next you'll be questioning how WTC7 collapsed into it's own footprint in 6.5 seconds after some small, localised fires consuming carpet tiles, lever arch folders, plasqqtic in-trays full of paper, office furniture and silver Larry's favourite 'I love Jew York' coffe mug.

Of perhaps how the 20% at the top of WTC1&2 (the lightest part of the buildings and probably only 10-12% by mass) were able to symmetrically pulverise the many times stronger, and greater mass beneath it.

Seriously though... what are the long-term consequences of severe societal cognitive dissonance? It's got to have a severe psychological impact upon the psyche. I guess we just have to look at the USSA today and it's perpetual wars of terror across the globe... amongst it's many other ailments.

There is even more damning evidence of cover up...

This is absolute proof beyond all doubt the official narrative is a fraud... so damning that you probably have never seen it before... even from 911 conspiracy promoters.

When you strike a cue ball with a pool stick, you feel and equal and opposite force along the pool stick... you feel the hit as a deceleration in the motion of the pool stick. If it didn't decelerate, you wouldn't feel the strike.

Well, there was no deceleration as the top of the WTC fell right through an ALREADY IMPLODING lower building... so there was nothing structurally sound enough to resist the falling top portion of the building and decelerate it.

Unreasoned people will contend this isn't so, but they will NOT be able to rationally respond in kind because this is the physical truth based on Newton's Third Law.

+1... Heres another point: the building was designed such that lower floors could carry 3 times the load it had to carry.

As the building came down, floor by floor, top down, material was ejected hundreds of yards away some the large pieces weighing tons that hit building 7

Okay - thats an energy drain, right?

As the process continues, the collapse should slow - why? Because because there is less and less load ( due to ejected material no longer putting force on the floors below.

Meanwhile the lower floors that had no fires, no damage, built to handle 3 times the load, also collapse... Same speed as the pancaking above.

Why would intact lower floors collapse with less load above? And why would it be floor-by-floor since the the force on a floor above would also be on lower floors at the same time?

You have to remove resistance floor by floor. For that you need something to remove all resistance to the force above.

Happy to hear criticism, I am quite obviously not a phd in physics.
