Several US Government officials as well as families of victims from the 9/11 attacks are urging that 28 redacted pages of a congressional report concerning the September 11 attacks be released- pages which may point to Saudi Arabia supporting the hijackers who carried out the attacks.

According to CBS News, Former US Senator Bob Graham claims that twenty-eight pages of a report he helped author should be declassified as to shed light on potential Saudi support for the 9/11 attacks.

Graham and former CIA director Porter Goss say the 28 pages were removed from the report by the Bush Administration in the interest of “national security”, though Graham feels the reason they were classified was to maintain relations with Saudi Arabia. Though Graham remained true to not discussing classified information, he says the pages outline a network of potential supporters who may have helped the hijackers- with substantial help by Saudi Arabian citizens, charities and even the Saudi government.

“I think it’s implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many didn’t have a high school education, could have carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States,” said Graham.

Former Indiana Democratic Representative Tim Roemer said that it is time to release the information.

“Look, the Saudis have even said they’re for declassifying it. We should declassify it,” Roemer said. “Is it sensitive…a bit of a can of worms or some snakes crawling out of there? Yes.”

The “28 pages” movement is nothing new, with multiple organizations, officials and even an entire activism blog dedicated to the subject.
