Release of 28 Pages a Strategic Victory; Now a New Investigation

July 15, 2016 (EIRNS)—The Obama Administration waited until the final hours of the Congressional session before a six-week recess to release the slightly redacted 28-page chapter from the original 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11. Despite the timing, the release was a tremendous victory, that now puts the entire Anglo-Saudi Empire in the cross-hairs for their now-documented role in the worst terrorist atrocity on U.S. soil. Furthermore, a careful reading of the partially redacted 28 pages makes clear that Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) was absolutely correct when he said last year that the 28 pages force a total rethinking of everything that has happened over the past 15 years.

The level of evidence of Saudi Monarchy involvement in the 9/11 attacks is far beyond what was previously publicly known. Scores of Saudi officials and members of the Royal family were intimately involved with al-Qaeda, and many had close links to the hijackers directly. U.S. agencies had evidence of deep Saudi sponsorship of al-Qaeda years before the 9/11 attacks, but any serious crackdown was suppressed and investigators were fired or transferred for asking too many of the right questions.

What is now urgently needed is a new top-down investigation, that starts with the Anglo-Saudi hand behind 9/11, but which extends far beyond those events of 15 years ago, to look into all of the subsequent terrorist atrocities and events like the Iraq and Libyan invasions, the ongoing regime-change efforts against the Assad regime in Syria and much more.

Lyndon LaRouche emphasized today that the momentum must be maintained for a new investigation that explores the depths of the Anglo-Saudi complex. Nothing short of that will root out the terror disease.

The release of the 28 pages, coming just days after the release of the Chilcot Commission Report in Britain, is a deadly one-two punch to the heart of the British Empire and its Saudi partners.

On the release of the 28 pages, Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), who led the Congressional fight, extended his thanks and congratulations to the LaRouche Movement for our pivotal role in forcing the release. He vowed to now move to the next level of investigation and not stop until the full truth is out for all to see.
