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.

Once again, I posted without looking for intelligent comments first.  You hit it out of the park with this post.  Well done sir.

What people watched on 9/11 was a made for tv movie.  Every fucking channel had the EXACT same feed when the "plane hit."  And oh ya, let's not forget the nose cone coming out the other side of the building.  Same nosecones that birds can seriously damage or even knock off.  Cognitive Dissonance at its finest.

Shpedly's picture

So, the peope on those planes were abducted beforehand and murdered to facilitate this grand hoax? Or did they not ever exist in the first place and their lives and history were all fabricated? You people really are insane if you think so.

Shpedly's picture

So give me the real scoop, Mr down vote.


prymythirdeye's picture

God forbid you do your own research.  Fuck it, right?  It's much easier to just shoot your fucking mouth off about a topic you clearly know nothing about.

Shpedly's picture

Plenty of plane parts at the Ground Zero Memorial numbskull. There are also plenty of heart wrenching recordings of those passengers sending last messages to their families. So many so, that this hardened soul could not bear to listen to them for more than 10 minutes. You really think this enept goverment could pull off such a grand illusion? If so, you should perhaps contact one of the victims families and let them tell you their side of the event and their loss.

Sorry to give you the news, but all those cell phone calls were phoney because in 2001 cell phones wouldn't work in aircraft flying 500 mph above 10,000 ft. Even the FBI disavowed the phone calls.

No shit Sherlock. There was ample low elevation and slow speed for people to get their messages out.

Most scary sentences: "Bassnan also stated to an FBI asset that he heard that the U.S. Government had stopped approving visas for foreign students.  He considered such measures to be insufficient as there are already enough Muslims in the United States to destroy the United States and make it an Islamic state within ten to fifteen years."  (Page 428)

WHO GIVES A FUCK???????  If anyone honestly believes the Saudis are the missing link to 9/11, I got a bridge to sell ya.  All you fuckers so easily distracted.

edit:  There were no planes for the upteenth fucking time so how could there have been any hijackers?  Oh yeah, I know, they found a pristine passport in the rubble so there must have been hijackers.

so i was THERE on 9/11! blocks up near Canal and Church walking to my office. I watched, with my own two eyes, as a large very grey jumbo sized jet fly into the top of the WTC tower. it sounded like it had engine trouble.

there was at least 1 plane. i am unsure about a second one. i was up church street. i saw ONLY an explosion and we were told that the gas main breaks were exploding.

Shitloads of people saw the planes. Holograms makes even less sense that you likely already think.

The idea is deliberately absurd trolling.

Who said anything about holograms?  You're the fucking troll.  Nice name gov shill homo.  You one of those dumb, stupid military animals?

Fuck you, you did.  My best friend lived on the lower east side and was on her way downtown to go to work.  NO FUCKING PLANES, YOU FUCKING LIAR.

There's a common view among truthers that those claiming there were no planes are trolls setting out to make truthers look like nutcases.

Here is something that might explain the planes issue.

"Saudi Arabia has long called for the release of classified '28 Pages'..." >> LOL, I literally couldnt stop laughing, what a hypocrisy when only few weeks back they threatened actions if pages get released!


bunnyswanson's picture

City of London with henchmen in Israel and Saudi Arabia, and on US soil DBA The Bush Crime Family pulled off 911.

911 was the USA financial sector, military and government being fucked by 3 missiles (1 hit the PA hillside).

OK, so who's good at fill in the blank?

Plane hits the pentagon is grounds for termination of whoever is in charge of planes not hitting the pentagon.

Who the fuck lets a plane hit the pentagon?

I mean in any real war wouldn't it be like the FIRST FUCKING TARGET?

And wouldn't it have stuff to shoot down stuff ..... around it?

Stand down orders etc.

It is obvious and we don't need any nutty theories and we don't have to explain exactly HOW all we need to show is who benefited and the obvious inconsistencies in the official narrative.

Votes and elections are meaningless when all of the candidates are vile liars. There can be no such thing as a mandate for political actions when every candidate is a liar. The American People have no representation in government because the political parasites are all despicable liars.
