Former Senator Says Huge Breakthrough Is Coming with Classified 9/11 Information

For related articles and information, please visit OCA's Politics and Democracy page.

Almost 12 years after it was published, 28 pages of a 9/11 intelligence report are still classified, but some congressional members are pushing for declassification. 
According to former Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.), who has seen the entire document, the classified pages expose "a larger effort to cover up Saudi activity in 9/11." 
Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) also says the pages deal with Saudi connections, and believes "it was the influence of the Bush administration to classify those pages." 
Litigation from 9/11 victims' families against the Saudi government has been held up, but a federal appellate court recently overturned the Saudi defense of sovereign immunity. 
Eighty thousand pages of information on a Saudi family that disappeared days before the 9/11 attacks have been turned over to the courts through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Three years after the attacks, everything those agencies uncovered was thought to be included in what came to be known as the 9/11 Commission Report. When the 9/11 Commission published its exhaustive report - on how the hijackers perpetrated the attacks and what happened that day - the surviving family members of the victims and Americans at large hoped for a thorough analysis of all the intelligence surrounding this tragic event.
