There were two articles in the NYT about those classified pages of the 9-11 report. It looks like some or all of them might be reclassified and released. We might finally know what the bush boy and cheney were hiding from America all this time.




Claims Against Saudis Cast New Light on Secret Pages of 9/11 Report

A still-classified section of the investigation by congressional intelligence committees into the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks has taken on an almost mythic quality over the past 13 years — 28 pages that examine crucial support given the hijackers and that by all accounts implicate prominent Saudis in financing terrorism.

Now new claims by Zacarias Moussaoui, a convicted former member of Al Qaeda, that he had high-level contact with officials of the Saudi Arabian government in the prelude to Sept. 11 have brought renewed attention to the inquiry’s withheld findings, which lawmakers and relatives of those killed in the attacks have tried unsuccessfully to declassify.

“I think it is the right thing to do,” said Representative Stephen F. Lynch, Democrat of Massachusetts and an author of a bipartisan resolution encouraging President Obama to declassify the section. “Let’s put it out there.”

-Snip-
“This administration, in response to a congressional request, last year asked the intelligence community to conduct a classification review of this material,” said Edward C. Price, a spokesman for the National Security Council. “We did so in keeping with the standard procedure for determining whether classified information can be publicly released without jeopardizing national security. That process is ongoing.” http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/05/us/claims-against-saudis-cast-new-light-on-secret-pages-of-9-11-report.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=a-lede-package-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0

Pre-9/11 Ties Haunt Saudis as New Accusations Surface

During the 1980s and ’90s, the historic alliance between the wealthy monarchy of Saudi Arabia and the country’s powerful clerics emerged as the major financier of international jihad, channeling tens of millions of dollars to Muslim fighters in Afghanistan, Bosnia and elsewhere. Among the project’s major patrons was Prince Salman Bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, who last month became Saudi Arabia’s king.

Some of those fighters later formed Al Qaeda, which declared war on the United States and later mounted major attacks inside Saudi Arabia as well. In the past decade, according to officials of both the George W. Bush and Obama administrations, the Saudi government has become a valuable partner against terrorism, battling Al Qaeda at home and last year joining the American-led coalition against the extremists of the Islamic State.

Yet Saudi Arabia continues to be haunted by what some suspect was a tacit alliance with Al Qaeda in the years before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Those suspicions burst out in the open again this week with the disclosure of a prison deposition of a former Qaeda operative, Zacarias Moussaoui, who claimed that more than a dozen prominent Saudi figures were donors to the terror group and that a Saudi diplomat in Washington discussed with him a plot to shoot down Air Force One.

Saudi officials have staunchly denied those claims, noting that Mr. Moussaoui was a convicted terrorist with a history of mental troubles and little to lose by spreading lies about Saudi officials. On Wednesday, experts on the kingdom also expressed strong doubts about Mr. Moussaoui’s claims. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/05/world/middleeast/pre-9-11-ties-haunt-saudis-as-new-accusations-surface.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=b-lede-package-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

It seems ironic the Saudi's would plot against us after we saved their oil fields from Saddam in Desert Storm. Abdullah invited us in...infidels on Saudi soil...it was more than bin-Laden could tolerate. The same bin-Laden CLINTON refused to take into custody from Sudan; the same bin-Laden he let bomb the WTC the first time, our African embassies, and the Cole without response.

So whatever Bush and Cheney might have known about the Saudi funding of radical madrassas wasn't news.,,,,can Moussaoui be trusted? Of course not, although with the muslim coward in the WH maybe he'll be released for "time served".

We have a more pressing issue with the Saudis right now...today. They're trying to drive our frackers under and having some success in terms of new fields being opened. But they can't win that fight this time as they are finding out. So bring out the report....embarrass the shit out of them and maybe they'll move against ISIS in a real coalition this time with other arab states.

Brian Williams, Dan Rather and the New York Times. The most trusted names in news.





What's that supposed to mean?
They all are LIARS!!! Means the report is at best unbelievable.



So all those news outlets are lying about this?
They are all known liars. But libtards love liars.


What's your evidence or proof that they're lying about this?

Are you saying all of it's a lie? That there's no 9-11 report and that the bush boy didn't prevent America from knowing what's in something like 28 pages of it?

Because if you are, then you really aren't in touch with reality. Or you just like to lie. Or both.
