Several members of Congress have been trying to get the mysterious “28 pages” of the 9/11 Joint Inquiry Report declassified and released to We the People ever since the report was published in December of 2002. Currently, two Republican and two Democrat congressmen are co-sponsoring House Resolution 428, which demands the release of the 28 pages.
These 28 pages comprise an entire chapter of the initial 9/11 report. Countless relatives of victims have been protesting and petitioning government to learn what the report contains, but the federal government feels obligated to continue hiding the truth from the people who supposedly rule this republic.
Speculation and conjecture have filled in the blanks that the government has drawn. Conspiracy theorists have run wild with this official censorship. Some have claimed the report proves that Marvin Bush (George’s brother) was head of security of the WTC complex in the years leading up to the attacks, and he shut down key areas of the towers in the weeks leading up to the attack so that black ops teams could paint super thermate explosives onto the steel support beams.
Others have claimed that the missing 28 pages expose the reasoning behind the multiple drills that sent dozens of fighter jets that could have been used to intercept the hijacked planes out of the area.
Perhaps the most prevalent speculation, and the chatter that I had come to believe, was that the missing 28 pages documented our government’s ties to Saudi Arabia. Senator Bob Graham even wrote in an op-ed that he was convinced “there was a direct line between at least some of the terrorists who carried out the September 11th attacks and the government of Saudi Arabia.” It showed that we stood down when our government located suspicious Saudi citizens. Due to the close friendship the Bush family had with the Bin Laden family and the Saudi royals, the orders went down the chain of command and 15 of the 19 hijackers were allowed to move and plan and plot and communicate, unobstructed.
On the eve of 9/11, Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer, a top insider who was called “a rock star” of black ops during his days in the military, spoke about various issues in an interview with radio host Alex Jones. Colonel Shaffer confirmed that the missing 28 pages indeed do refer to the Saudi connection. Shaffer said that the revelations that would come from the release of the material would be “deeply embarrassing.” Others who have read the pages insist that the release of the chapter would bring down the entire anti-terror, spy-grid, dystopic, nightmare, homeland security, panopticon system.
The thinking is simple. What good will these unbelievably expensive, corrupt, and personally invasive programs do to prevent terrorism when we welcome terrorists from allied countries to ramble about unmolested? And what good will the nightmare panopticon system do when we allow anyone and everyone to pass freely from Mexico into the United States?
Our borders are wide open. Journalists are crossing the border dressed as Bin Laden or ISIS terrorists with fake heads, bags of biological and chemical weapons, giant swords, and black masks. But we need TSA to pat down our babies’ diapers to see if Bin Laden is hiding inside. Meanwhile, George HW Bush ate breakfast with Osama’s brother as the planes slammed into the towers. So the 28 pages would dismantle the ruse of imagined necessity by highlighting the real cause for our security failures that day.
The 28 pages would prove that the homeland spy grid was created from the excuse of security failures stemming from inadequate funding, when the funds were already higher than the next eight countries combined. We found all of the Saudi terrorists. We knew who they were. We knew they were dangerous. But Bush stood down because the Saudi King told him to.
After 9/11, we did not attack Saudi Arabia, who supplied 15 of the 19 hijackers, funded the entire operation through the Bin Laden family, and collaborated with US government officials to ensure the success of the program. No. We attacked Iraq – their arch enemy.
Here we are now, 13 years after the Saudis attacked us. Last summer, Obama signaled he planned to attack Assad in Syria. Rand Paul said we shouldn’t be “Al Qaida’s air-force,” the military rebelled, 92% of the public disapproved, so he backed off. Not even a year later, on the eve of 9/11, Obama gave a speech announcing our intent to attack Assad’s enemies. Another 9/11, another invasion, another death knell sounding for our decrepit, dilapidated, crumbling vestige of a free society.
