- Saudi Arabia(wink wink): “If we are exposed, we will return the favor and reveal interesting things about the CIA involvement, ur.. I mean in making cheese pies and liberty fries, of course (wink wink).”
- CIA Director John Brennan Believes The “28-Pages” Will Be Released & Quell Suspicion Of The Saudis
by Tyler Durden, www.zerohedge.com
The now infamous “28-Pages” is well known to most everyone – for those that forget, the final chapter of a Congressional investigative report was classified and left out of the documents handed over to the 9/11 commission, who ultimately produced the final report. What’s also well known is the fact that upon hearing that the US was opening back up this can of worms, the Saudis threatened to sell $750 billion worth of treasuries and other US assets.
Since those events, the US Senate has passed legislation that would allow 9/11 victims or surviving family members to sue Saudi Arabia, and numerous people have speculated on whether or not the 28-pages would be declassified and released for public consumption. Most recently, perhaps the most prominent figure to discuss the release of the 28-pages is none other than CIA Director John Brennan. One would imagine that Brennan would be in the know regarding the contents of those pages, and as Reuters reports, Brennan said on Sunday that he expects the pages will be released. Furthermore, Brennan said that people shouldn’t take them as evidence of Saudi Arabia being complicit in the attacks.
Whether or not Brennan was being sincere or whether this was a well timed interview that said the right things remains to be seen. However, it would be a significant step in the right direction to have the public actually be able to read and decipher the truth for themselves for once instead of the government dictating what the public can or can’t handle like small children.
Also, Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) has a different take on the 28-pages than Brennan, although he too wants the public to be able to read the documents for themselves. (tweet top of post)
And one more thing – if it’s all so harmless, why did the Saudis kick up an international storm over it?
