The controversy surrounding 28 still-classified pages of the 9/11 Commission Report just got more complicated during a new interview with the chairman of the 9/11 Commission. Former Senator Bob Graham revealed far more to NPR than he did in a previous interview with “60 Minutes,” and this bombshell could rock the nation, and possibly the world, to its core.
NPR asked Graham whether he thought consecutive administrations have actively protected the Saudi royal family over U.S. interests. Graham’s reply to that is shocking, to say the least:
“Yes. And I think it’s been more than a cover up. I think it’s been what I call aggressive deception. There are instances in which the FBI has publicly released statements which I know from personal experience were untrue. They stated that in this Sarasota situation – that they had completed the investigation, that the investigation determined that there were no connections between the hijackers and the prominent Saudi family, and that they had turned over all of this information to both the congressional inquiry and the 9/11 Citizens Commission. I know for a fact that none of those three statements are true.”
When pressed further on that, he went on to say:
“It’s more than a cover-up. The FBI misstated what is in their own records relative to the situation in Sarasota.”
So, basically, we have a tangled web of lies relating to the 9/11 investigation that pushed an agenda for the Bush family, and has, sadly, continued under Obama.
Graham and others said before that one of the biggest reasons these 28 pages are still classified is because they could be very embarrassing for the Bush family, due to its deep connection to the Saudis. The families of the 9/11 victims want these pages released, though, and President Obama has promised to release these papers soon.
Graham is calling for a new investigation into 9/11 – one that’s honest, and tells the whole truth, even if it makes a whole lot of people, including Saudi Arabia, look really bad.
