    New House Resolution Calls for Declassifying Secret Portion of 9/11 Report

    Why would they want to keep this secret? As is clear, it's not for fear of offending the Saudis so it must be protecting another entity:



    H. Res. 428

    RESOLUTION

    Urging the president to release information regarding the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks upon the United States.

    Whereas President George W. Bush classified 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001;

    Whereas the contents of the redacted pages are necessary for a full public understanding of the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, attacks upon the United States;

    Whereas the Executive Branch’s decision to maintain the classified status of these pages prevents the people of the United States from having access to information about the involvement of certain foreign governments in the terrorist attacks of September 2001; and

    Whereas the people of the United States and the families of the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks deserve full and public disclosure of the results of the Joint Inquiry: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that–

    (1) the President should declassify the 28-page section of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001; and

    (2) the families of the victims and the people of the United States deserve answers about the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, attacks upon the United States.

    We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq.

    Another attempt for President Obama to either prove or disprove his own words that his administration is the most transparent in history.

    I certainly would not mind knowing... whoever was involved should be identified. I cannot really envision a good or legitimate reason why we should not be informed.

    They're covering up for somebody that's for sure.

    Everyone is jumping to conclusions because of their vast knowledge and experience dealing with classified information.

    Constitutionalists should be advocates for transparency. Most people with their heads in the open already know that there's small truth to the "official" 9/11 story and would welcome additional information.

    Its been 12 years... can you give a plausible scenario in which this material still needs to remain classified? Declassify and if there is nothing there, it will give us, perhaps, a little more faith in government... which is sorely lacking...

    You don't know what is classified and why.

    Lol. Which is why he asked you to present a 'plausible scenario' for why it remains classified after twelve years.

    That is determined by the classifying activity. The classification guide may have required it.
