CIA Chief ‘Expects’ 28 Pages To Be Released Soon; Fallback Coverup Is Planned
June 12, 2016 (EIRNS)—CIA Director John Brennan said yesterday that he "believes" that the classified 28 pages of the Congressional Joint Inquiry on 9/11 will be released soon, and "that is good," in an interview on Al Arabiya TV, which is owned by Saudi broadcaster Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC). Brennan’s interview was covered by CNN-TV and RT in Russia. This is the first-ever interview with Arab media by the CIA.
Brennan’s announcement represents the Obama Administration’s realization that the demands by American citizens for the release of the pages, pointing to Saudi funding of 9/11 which killed 2,986 people in Manhattan, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, could no longer be stonewalled.
Brennan interview reports that Obama will now fall back to the 2004 9/11 Commission Report to discredit the 2002 Report of Congress. Brennan told Al Arabiya:
“These so-called ‘28 pages’ were part of the Joint Inquiry which were published in 2002, which was just a year after 9/11, and was a very preliminary review—just trying to piece together bits and pieces of who was responsible for 9/11. Subsequently, the 9/11 Commission looked very thoroughly at the allegations of Saudi involvement—and their finding, their conclusion, was there was no evidence that the Saudi goverNment as an institution, or Saudi officials individually, had supported the attacks.
“So, these ‘28 pages,’ I believe they are going to come out; I believe they should come out, but people shouldn’t take them as evidence of Saudi complicity in the attack. Indeed, I think subsequent reviews and assessments that have been done show that it was very, very unfortunate, but that it was indeed the work of al-Qaeda, bin Laden, Zawahiri, and others of that ilk.”
Former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, co-chair of the Congressional investigation which produced the Congressional Joint Report on 9/11, said in CBS News’ "60 Minutes" on May 10 that it is impossible that 15 Saudis who did not speak English, or have experience living in the West, could maintain themselves and take flying lessons without a network of support. This network was funded substantially by the Saudis.
This news service has learned that more than 100 Congressmen have read the 28 pages and know what they contain. In addition, H.Res.14, calling for release of the 28 pages, introduced by Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), has 69 co-sponsors, and Senate Bill 1471 is its companion bill in the U.S. Senate.
