The lead author of the Senate’s 9/11 report is not giving up his fight to reveal the 28 redacted pages.
Watch Jesse talk to Rep. Walter Jones, one of the key politicians pushing the U.S. government to reveal the hidden 28 pages of the 9/11 report.
Can you believe we're STILL having this conversation??
Those 28 pages from the 9/11 report are STILL missing, but thankfully a few vigilant politicians are STILL fighting for transparency... and they say its in the name of national security.
Government officials stick to the same argument whenever they want to hide their tracks. "Its in the interest of national security! We can't tell you! The terrorists will win!" Well, the man who chaired the Senate Select Committee that issued the 9/11 report in 2002 disagrees. Former Senator Bob Graham says the real "threat to national security is non-disclosure."
Graham, along with Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) held a press conference last Wednesday to build bipartisan support for House Resolution 428, which says declassification of the 28 pages is necessary to provide the American public with the full truth surrounding the 9/11 attacks. Now, this is a good step but "full truth" will require more than revealing whats in these 28 pages.
Interesting tidbit from the article here:
Any member with a security clearance is able to read the redacted chapter in a closed room, albeit under supervision and with no note taking and no staff.It’s a cumbersome process, and most members haven’t bothered. The relatively few who have read the pages come away with varying levels of shock and surprise. Lynch said he was so blown away that the information was being kept from the public that he told the two room monitors he would be filing legislation. HR 428 had 27 co-sponsors in the last Congress.
