Rep. Gwen Graham and Rep. Walter Jones Demand Declassification of 28 Pages from House Floor

May 12, 2016 (EIRNS)—Congresswoman Gwen Graham, (D-Fla.), daughter of former Senator Bob Graham, and Congressman Walter Jones (R-N.C.) spoke today for one minute each on the floor of the Congress, demanding that the 28 pages of the 9/11 Joint Congressional Inquiry be declassified.

Graham said

"we need to know who was behind the attack on September 11, 2001. My father has been advocating this for twelve years. I have read them, my father has read them, and some of my colleagues have read them. We owe it to the people."

She quoted former Illinois governor Adlai Stevenson: "

As citizens of this democracy, you are the rulers and the ruled, the law-givers and the law-abiding, the beginning and the end."

No one has answered the question, "Why is it necessary to hide the truth from the American people?"

Congressman Jones then thanked Bob Graham for taking the lead to declassify the 28 pages. He said this is critical to the freedom of the American people. He cited his bill, H.Res. 14, and then addressed Obama directly.

"You have the authority, you promised the families. You must keep your promise and release the truth about 9/11."
