The American public already knows that 15 of the 19 terrorists in the 9/11 attacks were from Saudi Arabia, the promoter worldwide of the radical Wahhabist interpretation of Islam.
But 28 pages of top-secret information was left out of “The 9/11 Commission Report” that, according to some informed Congress members, contain evidence the kingdom’s rulers were involved in the attacks.
The petition calls “on the Congress of the United States to pass a resolution urging the president to declassify the entire 28-page section on foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers produced by the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001.”
The calls for Barack Obama to release the section is growing.
Former Florida Democratic Sen. Bob Graham has pressed the documents to be made public, as both the George W. Bush and Obama administrations refused.
Administration officials claimed it would jeopardize national security.
But critics have contended that the secrecy is a “calculated move” to hide Saudi involvement in the mass murder.
On the other side, the New York Daily News reports, are CIA officials who say the documents should be kept secret , because they contain “inaccurate information.”
CIA chief John Brennan said: “This chapter was kept out because of concerns about sensitive source of methods, investigative actions. The investigation of 9/11 was still underway in late 2002.”
Sebastian Gorka, who wrote “Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War,” said in a Breitbart report that what probably will be found is at least “connections between two of the hijackers and the Saudi embassy in Washington.
“So there are potentially some very embarrassing things in those 28 pages,” he said.
The London Daily Mail said families of 9/11 victims are infuriated with their government “for ‘siding with Saudi Arabia’ over a congressional bill that could incriminate Saudi officials for the deadly attacks.”
The report quoted Mindy Kleinberg, whose husband died in the attacks, saying “it’s stunning to think that our government would back the Saudis over its own citizens.”
The petition states:
Whereas, the September 11, 2001, terror attacks constituted the worst attack on the American homeland in our history, killing almost 3,000 innocent people, traumatizing the nation, introducing millions to the evils of radical Islam, and defining America’s foreign policy for the coming generation;
Whereas, Saudi Arabia is known to have spent billions of dollars exporting its radical Wahhabist brand of Islam worldwide, including to the United States;
Whereas, a bill to release the top-secret 28 pages of the report of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001 was introduced last year by Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., and two other congressmen;
Whereas, Jones, after reading the redacted section, declared it contains clear evidence of Saudi government sponsorship of the 9/11 hijackers;
Whereas, the 9/11 Commission failed to carry out the final recommendation of the Joint Inquiry – headed by then-Sen. Bob Graham, D-Fla., and then-Rep. Porter Goss, R-Conn. – to further investigate the role of Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 attacks;
Whereas, Graham, former chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and co-author of the key section of the 28 pages, has been calling for the release of the information since 2011;
Whereas, Graham says the FBI failed to disclose reports that high-ranking Saudi Arabian officials provided “substantial” financial aid and other help to the 19 hijackers;
Whereas, Graham believes the 28 pages were classified to protect the U.S. relationship with ally Saudi Arabia;
Whereas, the joint intelligence committee inquiry states in finding No. 15 that the committee “heard testimony from U.S. government personnel that Saudi officials had been uncooperative and often did not act on information implicating Saudi nationals”;
Whereas, the staff director of the 9/11 Commission, Phil Zelikow, actively worked against thoroughly investigating Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks, according to a book by New York Time’s national security correspondent Philip Shenon, “The Commission”;
Whereas, more than a dozen relatives of 9/11 victims have argued in a letter to President Obama that it is “not acceptable” to “succumb to the demands of a foreign government” and “abandon principles of American justice while we pursue our diplomatic goals”;
Whereas, President Obama admitted in an interview with CBS News co-host Charlie Rose that he’s never read the 28-page chapter himself, despite making a record four trips to Saudi Arabia and bowing to the kingdom’s monarchs;
Whereas, anything less than the release of the full 28 pages will be regarded by the public as evidence of a U.S. government cover-up of Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks:
