The U.S. government is continuing to protect Saudi oil gazillionaires by hiding information about their role in financing 9/11.
Click here to tell Congress members and the President to release 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission report on the Saudi role.
Saudi Arabia is the source of much funding for ISIS. Saudi Arabia is bombing civilians in Yemen with U.S. weapons. Saudi Arabia has executed over 100 people already this year. Why must the U.S. government go to such lengths to protect the Saudi government?
One possible answer is found in this recent Newsweek headline: "FBI Agent: The CIA Could Have Stopped 9/11." If true, shouldn't we know it?
There is now legislation in the Senate as well as the House to make the 28 pages public.
Click here to add to the pressure on Congress and the White House.
President George W. Bush ordered the 28 pages classified in December 2002. Senate Intelligence Committee former chair Bob Graham has ever since called Saudi Arabia "a co-conspirator in 9/11" while insisting that these pages back up that claim and should be made public.
Philip Zelikow, chair of the 9/11 Commission, has noted the "likelihood that charities with significant Saudi government sponsorship diverted funds to Al Qaeda."
Zacarias Moussaoui, a former al Qaeda member, has claimed that prominent members of Saudi Arabia's royal family were major donors to al Qaeda in the late 1990s and that he discussed a plan to shoot down Air Force One using a Stinger missile with a staff member at the Saudi Embassy in Washington.
Al Qaeda donors, according to Moussaoui, included Prince Turki al-Faisal, then the Saudi intelligence chief; Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, the longtime Saudi ambassador to the United States; Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, a prominent billionaire investor; and many of the country's leading clerics.
Click here to demand that we be allowed, these many years later, to see the 28 pages that have been denied to the public.
