Movement to Declassify 9/11 Information Gathers Momentum

9/11 Commission Chairs, Congressmen and Intelligence Officers All Call for Declassification

The 9/11 Commission Co-Chairs – Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean – have called for the 28-page section of the 9/11 Commission Report which is classified to be declassified.

Kean said that 60-70% of what was classified shouldn’t have been classified in the first place:

Congressman Thomas Massie read the 28 classified pages of the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry into 9/11 (the joint Senate and House investigation into 9/11) and immediately called for them to be released to the public:

A bipartisan bill – introduced by congressmen Walter B. Jones (Republican from North Carolina) and Stephen Lynch (Democrat from Massachusetts) – would declassify the 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry which implicate the Saudi government.

Former Congressman Ron Paul is also demanding the 28 pages be declassified:

The Co-Chair of the congressional investigation into 9/11 – Bob Graham -  and 9/11 Commissioner and former Senator Bob Kerrey are calling for either a “permanent 9/11 commission” or a new 9/11 investigation to get to the bottom of it.

Senator Graham has lobbied Obama for years to release the 28 pages and to reopen the investigation, but Obama has refused. The former Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee and 9/11 investigator has even resorted to filing Freedom of Information requests to obtain information, but the Obama administration is still stonewalling:

Graham said that like the 28 pages in the 9/11 inquiry, the Sarasota case is being “covered up” by U.S. intelligence. Graham has been fighting to get the FBI to release the details of this investigation with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and litigation. But so far the bureau has stalled and stonewalled, he said.

And high-level former NSA official Thomas Drake provided testimony to the 9/11 investigations documenting that the “official story” of 9/11 makes little sense, as the intelligence agencies had all of the information they needed to stop it.  Drake’s testimony has – for no real reason – been classified.

Drake is seeking to declassify his testimony to the 9/11 Commission:

I would argue for declassification and release because the 9/11 Commission asked for it in the public interest, my testimony was given to Congress via testimony (oral and written) to investigators as a material witness and whistleblower, because of NSA’s coverup of its accountability for 9/11, and the coverup committed by NSA to obstruct official Congressional investigations, plus declassification is timely in terms of ongoing efforts to reform NSA by Congress and the President.

I do know that my testimony and evidence was fully suppressed and censored as a deep state secret – so secret that it was not included in the classified report of the 9/11 Joint Inquiry.

Indeed, the 9/11 Commission admits that it never got all of the facts … and many officials are eager to spill the beans about what they know.

Still Urgent Today

Ancient history, you say?

Graham notes:

Although it’s been more than a decade ago when this horrific event occurred, I think [the questions of who supported the attacks] have real consequences to U.S. actions today.

As Graham told PBS:

We need to have this information now because it’s relevant to the threat that the people of the United States are facing today.

Postscript: People may not remember now, but – at the time – the supposed Iraqi state sponsorship of 9/11 was at least as important a justification for the Iraq war as the alleged weapons of mass destruction. This claim that Iraq is linked to 9/11 has since been debunked by the 9/11 Commission, top government officials, and even – long after they alleged such a link – Bush and Cheney themselves.

But 70% of the American public believed it at the time, and 85% of U.S. troops believed the U.S. mission in Iraq was “to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the 9-11 attacks.”

Only last year, John Glaser noted:

Significant portions of Americans still believe that Saddam and al-Qaeda were in cahoots and cooperated in the 9/11 attacks. The reason is simple: the administration told them this lie.

An investigation by a committee in the House of Representatives in 2004 identified “237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice. These statements were made in 125 separate appearances, consisting of 40 speeches, 26 press conferences and briefings, 53 interviews, 4 written statements, and 2 congressional testimonies.” According to the committee, at least 61 separate statements “misrepresented Iraq’s ties to al-Qaeda.” A Senate investigation in 2006 also covered these lies.

Keeping this lie afloat took some work. The Bush administration, primarily Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld, “applied relentless pressure on interrogators to use harsh methods on detainees in part to find evidence of cooperation between al Qaida and the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s regime,” McClatchy reported in 2009.

According to Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of staff to Bush’s Secretary of State Powell, “the administration authorized harsh interrogation” in 2002, and “its principal priority for intelligence was not aimed at pre-empting another terrorist attack on the U.S. but discovering a smoking gun linking Iraq and al-Qa’ida.”

Wilkerson is right.

In other words, the failure to conduct a real 9/11 investigation contributed to the Iraq war, torture, and the failure to fix fundamental weaknesses in – and threats to – America’s national security.

    FDNY 9/11 Survivor Witness and Whistleblower: Speaks on WTC 7 May 25, 2014

    In this video Luke Rudkowski interviews FDNY member Rudy Dent who on the day of 9/11 was witness to the collapse of infamous World Trade Center 7. Rudy Dent – Vietnam War veteran, four year member of the NYPD and thirty-two year FDNY firefighter. As a firefighter on 9/11, he was at Ground Zero and was there when Building 7 came down. In this episode of 9/11 Free Fall, he relives his experience that day, recounting how he believes the buildings in New York were brought down in controlled demolitions.

    Jeffrey Berwick The Walls Are Crumbling Down Around 9/11 – Why? August 05, 2014

    An absolutely monumental shift is in process that most have not recognized yet. The truth, or at least some truth, is about to be shown to the American masses about 9/11. I say American masses because everywhere I’ve gone in the world outside of the US, with few exceptions, almost everyone knows that the US government conspiracy theory on 9/11 is for people with tinfoil hats that are either completely zombified or are under mass hypnosis. Most of the rest of the world looks on the US like “The Truman Show” and can’t believe how many people in the show don’t realize it’s not real.

    • par4

      Because the USG is the biggest monster. I know that fact is too psychologically painful for most Americans to acknowledge.

            Book sounds interesting…he challenged WWI as a capitalist plot and was charged with sedition I believe (like Eugene Debs) but had such an powerful defense team his case never came to trial and charges were eventually dropped…not for Debs though, he got ten years. Lets have a laugh…

            That was great!
            There are some great comments here.Does anyone ever feel Like “Truth is a

          • ICFubar

            I hear you…but what can you do? Once you’ve discovered the truth you can’t unlearn it and go back to being ignorant. I’ve lost the odd “friend” over the years but made more and better ones following justice which should lead a person to truth.

    No mention of Building 7; so who are they protecting? Also, not yet all documents have been released related to John F. Kennedy’s assassination …so, who are they protecting? Who needs a surveillance state, a police state to be protected? Why did Congress pass a law that grants them immunity for lying to the public? Why are elections conducted on electronic e-voting, e-scanning, e-tabulating machines owned by right wing politicians and corporations resulting in more right-wing primary and general election winners that protect all above?

    AA Exposes Bush’s ‘Big Lie’: Flight 11 DID NOT FLY on 911!

    by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy



    American Airlines is the source for information that AA Flights 11 (North Tower) and 77 (Pentagon) did not fly on 911. If neither flew on 911, the Bush ‘theory’ is a lie. If the Bush ‘theory’ is a lie, there remains only one explanation and that is: 911 was an inside job given a green-light by Bush himself. Moreover –only Pentagon employees were autopsied as a result of Flight 77 crashing the Pentagon. There are NO names of 
passengers on the list, which is, in fact, the only admissible evidence to survive Bush’s cover up and his obvious and felonious destruction of evidence (wreckage) at the Pentagon.



    These “holes” are fatal to the Bush government’s crumbling cover up! Conan Doyle, the brilliant
    creator of the character Sherlock Holmes, said:
“When you have eliminated the impossible whatever remains however implausible must be the truth!”



    Bush’s official conspiracy theory of 911 is not only impossible, it is absurd and insulting to intelligent people!

    

The Bush Conspiracy Theory is impossible; That’s why we know it is a lie!

    Road Trip to Ground Zero: Get on Board
    
by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy



    Anyone who would solve 911 must place the suspect at the scene of the crime. 


    Candidates not having method, motive, and opportunity must be eliminated. That applies to Bushco’s scapegoats–some 14 Arab hijackers who cannot be placed (at) the scene of the crime, specifically NONE of them can be placed on any hijacked flight at any time! Until the BBC tracked down some of the alleged hijackers and interviewed them AFTER they were said to have died on 911, I might have been inclined to believe that they had not even existed. But–in any case–a living hijacker in a post-911 world disproves the Bush theory.

    Hijack ‘suspects’ alive and well

    • ICFubar

      great post, so your time well spent.

  • Tsar Caustic

    Kean’s anecdote about getting a security clearance and then reading classified material that contained information that he already knew, left out an important aspect, which is one of the key benefits to the government: even though he already knew the information, now he can no longer talk about it without risking being charged with “leaking” classified information.

  • T. Matson

    The people Bush and Obama work for need to be put down. They are a threat to Humanity. 1 in 68 Children born in the USA today develop Autism by the age of 4. To say vaccinations along with the Non-Muslim rulers of Saudi Arabia are not a Clear and Present Danger to the US is naïve at best. Saudi Arabia is now spending nearing 100 billion a year on Defense. ISIS is clearly well trained and armed and RESUPPLIED(with a continuous supply of ammunition, food, water, gas, etc. all military campaigns come to end),but the media claims ISIS keeps getting stronger and stronger. SO who is resupplying them and why don’t we simply cut off their supply routes since the HOT desert would do the rest???? Or do they magically get resupplied??????

  • Gord Hicks

    Whatever the classified information reveals it’s a good bet none of it will be consequential.

    Anyone with a mind to think knows the establishment will not do anything to hurt its interests. None of it will be incriminating of any individual(s) in any position of power. “Best case” is some lower level minions eg congressmen, mid-level CIA/NSA/FBI etc, get burnt by this release, if it ever happens.

    The problem is we have allowed government to hold the monopoly on the means and the power to properly investigate these kinds of crimes and that’s really chilling since government and its corporate controllers are the ones with the means and the motive to carry out 9/11s. In other words we have allowed the fox to guard the chicken-house and investigate any break-ins to and thefts from the chicken-house.

    Oh, and to add insult to to this Orwellian injury – It’s all on our dime. We pay for their crimes and their investigations of their crimes with our taxes

    • T. Matson

      No, they can and will be brought to Justice.

    • T. Matson

      1 out of 68 children born in the US develops Autism–it does not matter your race or your income–when someone harms your child–they demand Justice–hence the reason the press does its best to keep a lid on the genocide that is occurring in the USA. GENOCIDE. They cannot keep the lid on 1 in 68 Children in this nation developing Autism.

    • owyhee cowboy

      Spot on!I Like how amazed and repulsed they act.They no the score thats why they were ask
      to chair the committee

  • ICFubar

    So it has taken the “Deep State” a decade and a bit to get their ducks in a row to set up a secondary obfuscation of the truth. Backstopping the original “inquiry”, with a side lining of investigation into blind alleys of facts Yet to be uncovered by investigation for the blame to fall on obvious patsies. Graham as a former CIA lackey should be aware that the web site “Who Done It” names him as one of the collaborators on the 9/11/01 event. The two tools for the deception of the public calling for the release should be aware that a large percentage of the public, and growing, will see them for what they are, actors hoping to get a bigger role if they pull this gig off and please their bosses.

    Remember, as well, that Vladimir Putin threatened in May of this year that he had evidence that 9/11 was an “inside job” and was going to release it after NATO and the US government staged a coup and false flag attack in the Ukraine.

    • Me Who

      Isn’t there a member of the UN who said it was an inside job?

  • Stacy Boudreaux

    Here’s the question. If the U. S. Congress (our voice in Washington) demands these documents be declassified, who has the authority to keep this information secret from We the People?

  • Dixie fan

    60-70% of what was originally classified should not have been classified. WTF!?! 100% of what was classified should not have been classified! Look, if 9/11 was an attack on innocent US citizens, then US citizens need to know why and how it happened. Why do we even debate percentages? If 9/11 was an intelligence failure, are we to believe these same intelligence agencies will prevent another attack by withholding their previous mistakes from public scrutiny?

  • Dutch

    The charade going on here is just as bad as the one going on in DC.

    STOP calling for truth and change, if you are going to continue voting the same status-qou liars back into office time and time again. Seems most Americans want the truth about 9/11, yet none are willing to abandon their deeply held illusions/loyalties to the fraudulent two party system to get them.

    As long as that’s the case you can save the bandwidth here and do your crying to the guy in the mirror. THESE LIARS ARE NEVER GOING TO GIVE YOU THE TRUTH. Get over the fantasy. All of these ‘truth-seekers’ are just playing election season politics. They will NEVER follow through. Either unemploy them all, or spend the rest of your life waiting for a truth that will never come. This is your only choice. Its time to grow up, leave your comfort zone and stand for what you believe using the most powerful tool you have available, your vote. Anything else is hot air and will only bring you more hot air. The only thing we’ve gotten for 13 years and counting.

  • MajorTom

    Plus 9/11 is still being cited by our president and security establishment to justify surveillance, drones warfare, and military interventionism in the Middle East. Obama made the 9/11 lie one of his central justifications to maintain ubiquitous telephony surveillance in a January surveillance reform press conference. The lie was dutifully regurgitated ad nauseum by the establishment press.
