Why Were 28 Pages of the 9-11 Report Kept Hidden for so Long?

The Center for Security Policy has assessed the information found in the newly-released 28 pages from the congressional report on the attacks of September 11, 2001. Those pages had been redacted out of the public release, and were unavailable for almost fifteen years. Over the vigorous objections of the Saudi government, the 28 pages have finally been released (although still partially redacted).

Here’s the press release from CSP on those 28 pages:

Center Assesses ‘28 Pages’ Insights Into Saudi Double-Game Amidst Revelations of Clinton Role in Exacerbating its Threat Here

Washington, D.C.: Investigative reporter Paul Sperry revealed yesterday at CounterJihad.com the extent to which Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State reversed many of the measures put into place after 9/11 to protect the United States from additional Saudi jihadist attacks.

The necessity for such measures was underscored by the contents of the so-called “28 Pages,” a portion of the original congressional investigation conducted in the wake of the death and destruction caused by 15 Saudi nationals and four other Islamic supremacists on September 11, 2001. These pages had, until recently, been withheld from the American people and only were released last month in a redacted form.

The Center for Security Policy released today a white paper entitled “What’s in the 28 Pages?” providing valuable background information about this report and key highlights of its findings and offering recommendations as to a variety of changes with respect to U.S. policy towards Saudi Arabia and other enablers of and participants in the Global Jihad Movement.

Upon releasing this report, Center President Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. observed:

At a moment when Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy judgment and experience are properly the subject of intense scrutiny and debate, her role in undoing sensible measures aimed at protecting this country and its people from further Saudi treachery must be carefully considered. Such an analysis must, in turn, be informed by the insights about a specific and devastating example of such treachery: the 9/11 jihadist attacks on the United States.

The Center’s newest white paper illuminates the 28 Pages’ findings about the extent to which Saudi officials — including long-time ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar — were implicated along with various other nationals of their country, including of course, fifteen out of nineteen of the hijackers. The unmistakable implication is that the status Saudi Arabia enjoyed as a trusted ally prior to September 11, 2001 contributed to the execution of this murderous act of jihad. Similarly, it was eminently sensible after those attacks occurred to reduce dramatically Saudi student visas and to monitor more closely those Saudis coming to and inside the United States.

In light of what’s in the 28 Pages, America needs urgently to revisit decisions taken on Hillary Clinton’s watch that undid such sensible measures — and vigorously question those responsible.

  1. Perhaps one should also look for Saudi donations to a particular charitable foundation about the same time, or maybe a speaking assignment for a certain ex-president…..

  2. Sure we don’t want to embarrase of oil buddy. It’s well known that they belong to the same sect of islam; that thet print radical versians of the qu’ran ( that have injunctions to kill Jews in the margins). and that they throw around a lot of money in that area, for radical causes.

    • “radical versians of the qu’ran”
      There are NO “radical versions of the koran”- it is the perfect, clear and unchangeable Word of Allah. Please get that straight in your mind.
      EVERY koran is supposedly identical.

        • Injunctions to kill Jews increase in intensity as the verses go on…from live in peace to everyone else shall live in pieces.

  3. Perhaps every single member of the entire government should be asked, “Are you now accepting or have you ever accepted cash and other goodies from Saudis or the Muslim Brotherhood and their affiliates and sympathisers to promise to lie cheat and steal on their behalf? Are you being blackmailed now? Too big to fail? Just axing.

  4. …”her role must be … carefully considered.” ?? Frank Gaffney is as useless as the rest of them, if he is completely incapable of making a simple declarative sentence about Hillary’s treason.

  5. Will we ever revolt? I believe not.

    Obama (in concert with GOP Presidential nominee McCain) signed the NDAA on New Year’s Eve 2011. The Bill of Rights (and our Founders’ Republic) was dealt a fatal blow but patriots did nothing.

    Like the line in the Forest Gump movie, “And then one day it was over, just like that.” America RIP.

  6. Among Bush’s first actions on 9/11 was catering to key Saudis and getting them out of the country. I’ve understood the house of Saud sends its young men out into the world to wage jihad, a strategy that protects those in control of the house by simultatneously furthering its religious agenda and lowering the number of competing males in the dynasty by killing them off. The West has chosen to overlook this for decades because, oil. And not just the Saudis — remember when Bush tried to give control of our ports to Dubai (not Saud, but goes to his looking after the interests of allies over Americans). This is all much deeper than political parties, in my opinion and goes back decades. I’m not at all surprised Clinton continued the policies.
    What supposed safety measures were undone?

  7. Islam aims to win this religious war. They took half the Christian world from the 7th to the 17th century. They won’t settle for just half of what remains this time. Why should they?

  8. Would we have gotten 2008 if the 28 pages had been available? I’m still intrigued by that, and worry that it may never come to light.

  9. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again:

    Take a raving lunatic’s anti-semitic conspiracy theories, and change “Jews” to “Saudi Royal Family”, and you’ve probably got a pretty good starting point for theories as to what’s going on.

  10. Is this where I can remind readers of the absolute perfidy of former “Prez” Geo. W. Bush after the 11 September 2001 attack?

    I have kept these newspapers intact for years simply because the following seemed to disappear from the news after its initial report in the days following 9/11/01:

    George W. Bush ordered a private jet (prob. the Bush family jet) to collect members of Osama bin Laden’s huge and misbegotten family who were in the United States and FLY THEM TO SAUDI.

    Yes, here’s a report online: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bin-laden-family-evacuated/ . Because the “poor things” might become objects of attack….

    I always suspected the “missing 28 pages” were details of this “rear-end” kissing action by the prez. If they have anything otherwise, so much the better, I suppose. Every time I’ve heard about the “28 pages,”my memory of the chartered jet(s) destroys my rational mind and I become so infuriated that I simply forget to pursue the story.

    Yah. I got a few blind (blind rage, that is) spots.

  11. Sure the Saudis were in it up to their elbows but what about the Twin Towers vertical collapse, apparently caused by a military grade accelerant, a gas, detonated by a radio signal? It was as much a false flag as a terrorist incident.

    • Funny that nobody noticed the extensive presence of work crews necessary to prepare a building for demolition. I guess the Israelis, CIA, FBI, and JV did a pretty good job in covering it up.

  12. If there is blame should first of all pointed to that committee which looked to the crime of 9/11

    After 15 years or so theses hidden pages from public now in public domain, shod those committee members be in the court of divert rule of Justis and lining with terrorists?

    in other hand a shocking advice from Britain’s Home Office has said that high-profile Islamist operatives may be eligible for asylum in the United Kingdom given the group is now “persecuted” in opposition in Egypt.

    So again if in near future some terrorist acts by hardcore Islamist like Brotherhood group you should point the blame on who give immunity to get freely to the west with all crimes they done on their homeland.

  13. The headline of this article is somewhat misleading: “Why were 28 pages…kept hidden so long?” In fact, the question of why they were sealed so long is not addressed. The reason is obvious: both the Bush and Obama administration were thoroughly involved with Islamists and foreign agents.

    Perhaps the more important question is, why were the 28 pages released? They did give the 9-11 families more ammunition in their lawsuit against Saudi Arabia, but nobody ever accused the Obama administration of being motivated by US security or by the well-being of US citizens.

    Probably the reason the pages were released is to pay the Saudis back for open criticism of the Iran nuclear deal and for other Saudi irritants, including an open snub of President Obama when we visited Saudi Arabia.

    Being blunt, the release of the 28 pages didn’t really change anything. The indirect (and possibly direct) Saudi involvement with the 9/11 hijackers was already well-known. The Obama administration is not going to change any of the very lax security measures now in effect towards Saudi Arabia. The occasion is simply an opportunity by the Obama administration to cause a bit of trouble for the Saudi government that had the gall to show Obama in a bad light.
