Congress Is Finally Pushing For 9/11 Truth

(ANTIMEDIA) WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressmen Stephen F. Lynch and Walter B. Jones and former Senator Bob Graham were joined by families of 9/11 victims as they announced the introduction of a new House Resolution which calls on President Obama to declassify 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001.  Although the final report amounts to over 800 pages, the 28 pages were classified by former President George W. Bush shortly after the report was released.

The Representatives introduced a similar resolution in 2013 and received bipartisan support. Now Jones, Lynch, and Kentucky Representative Thomas Massie have introduced House Resolution 14 which states that “declassification of the pages is necessary to provide the American public with the full truth surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001, particularly relating to the involvement of foreign governments.”

Jones said he chose to introduce the resolution “because the families deserve peace, the American people deserve the truth, and the release of these pages will not harm our national security.” He encouraged the Senate to introduce a companion resolution. Congressman Lynch said “enough time has passed that we can digest the information they contain without worrying about the visceral passions and security implications that existed in the days immediately following September 11th, 2001.”

Upon seeing the 28 pages Rep. Jones said the 28 pages would embarrass the Obama administration. Rep. Massie said while reading the documents he “had to stop every couple of pages and absorb and try to rearrange my understanding of history for the past 13 years and the years leading up to that. It challenges you to rethink everything.”

Former Senator Bob Graham spoke of the “denial of truth” coming from government officials. Graham asked, “Did these 19 hijackers act alone or did they have support?”. He said the 28-pages “point a strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier” of the attacks. When asked if he was speaking about the Saudi government or independent elements, he stated that he was referring to the Saudi Kingdom.

Graham called the refusal of the Bush or Obama Administrations to release the documents a “pervasive pattern of covering up the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 by all of the agencies of the federal government which have access to information that might illuminate Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11.”

Terry Strada, co-chair of 9/11 Families United for Justice Against Terrorism and widow of Tom Strada, said “Private citizens and Congress must take action against those who are responsible for aiding and abetting the 19 hijackers that murdered nearly 3,000 innocent people on American soil no matter who they may be, no matter what government they are, no matter what country they come from.”

Strada emphasized the families call for three things: Accountability, Justice, and the truth. She also called for support from Congress for the passing of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which would hold countries who fund terrorism accountable and give power to Congress to prosecute countries who fund terrorism.

Also in attendance were  Sylvia Carver, sister of Sharon Ann Carver (Pentagon victim); and Abraham Scott, widower of Janice Scott (Pentagon victim).

Carver personally requested President Obama release the 28-pages, stating that “The families have a right to know the full story, we have a right to justice, and to closure.”  Abraham Scott, retired Army Officer, said “I stand before you in full support of the initiative of declassifying the 28 pages as well as passing JASTA.”

Support for the resolution and declassification of the pages has gained in popularity in recent months and years. Last summer, 9/11 Commission Chairman Thomas Kean and Vice Chairman Lee Hamilton also came out in support of declassification. “I’m embarrassed that they’re not declassified,” Hamilton said to the New York Post.

BenSwann.com reported that “former Secretary of State and potential U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, ISIS has received funding from the Saudis.

Eight years after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Clinton, wrote in a cable leaked by WikiLeaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaeda, the Taliban, LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan) and other terrorist groups.”

  1. '…15 of 19 Hijackers…' which have nevcer hijacked any Plane and never was any Plane hitting the Twin Towers, WTC 7, the Pentagon or elsewhere brought down. Why do you pple, take over blatant lies in your headline? Despite the fact that some of them not even knew that they was dead since some weeks or month ago and was presenting themself doing their jobs in very healthy and good conditions…

  2. Honestly though it's a start, the more we get declassified and the more the public who have had these false details hammered into their brains realize the story they were given wasn't true, the more they will question other facts that they have held as truths for over a decade now.
    These 28 pages will no doubt cast a lot of questions on Cheney and Bush, the more information that gets released, the more the official story falls apart and we have evidence to go further down the rabbit hole,

  3. Matt Kelly yo – your right. I'm only losing my patience when i see pple. talking in a circle around the main Issue. The time for diplomatic way of discovering is already expired and its embarassing to hear about f******* appeals to the president! Nobody have to appeal for his Human Rights. If you puzzle all the facts together you burn this 'NIST-Report', which is another big LIE in a row of lies in the american History and expose the true story and the real culprits. Based on these lies the US is murdering millions of people worldwide until today – so its not only an Issue for the people of the USA, but you're the only ones who can break up this dreadful structure which is terrorizing the whole World! – Peace bro -

  4. Angelo Sackbauer I know I've had the same feeling many times, the 911 Commission is another group that completely changed facts to fit the official story, and buried others that contradicted it, every person in that commission should be tried for conspiracy to mislead the public and other treasonous laws, the fact people pushing for truth still have to say a jumbo jet went through a 5 meter wide hole in the side of the Pentagon is just telling of how deeply imbedded the official story is in most peoples heads, they hold on to what they were told on TV that day and the days following.

    Until we break down the least complicated and most accepted parts of the claims made by the government to explain the events of that day, we will never be able to carry forward with the larger arguments that the people need to hear, once we strike doubt in the basic lies, we are on the road to having the support of the majority to find the answers to the big lies, in order to make the truth digestible for the public, we must drip feed them the truth, as has been seen way to many times in the past, if you hit the public with a wealth of knowledge that is contradictory to their initial beliefs, they will reject it, this is something therapists have known for centuries, and it's one of the techniques used by government controlled media, to embed information that if questioned will immediately cause the subject to hold on to the first information they learned and reject all new information.

    Just remember we still have a lot of people to wake up, and like many false flags in the past 9/11 will be known as a government sponsored terror attack by the majority sooner than I think has been the case in the past.

  6. Ok…Most of the Hijackers were Saudis, right? Then why did we just ignore saudi Arabia and go all out on Afghanistan and Iraq? Not saying those 2 countries are innocent but wouldn't Saudia make sense? I'm not saying we should have invaded damn Saudia, but if we didn't see fit to invade Saudia, then we shouldn't have so IMMEDIATLEY and SUDDENLY jump on the other 2 countries. Why were they afraid to say anything that makes Saudia Arabia look bad? Because we're in bed with them? Because they're allies with Israel? Huh?
    Love, a veteran.

  7. Kev Christy For God's sake, as much as I HATE to admit it…..I think I might actually consider agreeing with that statement.

  8. Iraq got nothing to do with 9/11, the invasion of Iraq was about the petrodollar. Saddam started to sell his oil in Euro$ in 2000 which can threat the status of the US $ as the main reserve currency of the world and cause it to devalue quickly. So they stick bunch of accusations to invade Iraq. It was a war of aggression, a wrong war. Look at Iraq now it's a failed state.
