CIA director claims secret 9/11 report pages full of hearsay, inaccurate info

32

This is a ridiculous claim. If this material were inaccurate, why wouldn’t it have been corrected? Why classify and zealously guard inaccurate information? The Obama administration is yet again kowtowing to the Saudis. The American people need to get the truth.

“CIA director says secret 9/11 report pages full of hearsay, inaccurate info,” Fox News, May 2, 2016:

Why does CIA director want to keep 9/11 report pages secret?

CIA Director John Brennan said Sunday that 28 classified pages of a bipartisan commission’s report on the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks contains “uncorroborated, unvetted information” that some could seize upon to claim Saudi Arabian involvement in the attacks.

Brennan, speaking on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” said such claims would be “very, very inaccurate.”

The Obama administration may soon release at least part of the secret chapter, which some believe shows a Saudi connection to the Al Qaeda attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa.

A groundswell to declassify the documents began last month, when former Florida Sen. Bob Graham told CBS’ “60 Minutes” he believed the 19 hijackers “substantially” received support from officials in Saudi Arabia’s government and prominent members of society.

“There are a lot of rocks out there that have been purposefully tamped down, that if were they turned over, would give us a more expansive view of the Saudi role,” Graham said at the time.

The 28 pages were withheld from the 838-page report on the orders of then-President George W. Bush, who said the release could divulge intelligence sources and methods. In mid-April, the White House told Graham that it would decide whether to declassify the material within 60 days.

Brennan said Sunday that the pages were classified because “of concerns about sensitive methods, investigative actions, and the investigation of 9/11 was still under way in 2002.”

Brennan added that he believed the pages contain “a combination of things that are accurate and inaccurate.” He said the 9/11 Commission followed up on the preliminary information in the 28 pages and made “a very clear judgment” there was no evidence indicating “the Saudi government as an institution or Saudi officials individually” financially backed Al Qaeda.”…
