Given the enormous stakes for lives and liberties around the world, every government claim and public assumption about the war on terror deserves questioning.
28Pages.org provides candid analysis of the war on terror to advance a more rational and honest approach to this longest of American wars.
The site was launched in July 2014 by freelance writer Brian McGlinchey as an information and activism hub for the nonpartisan movement to declassify 28 pages on Saudi links to 9/11. 28Pages.org pursued that goal by enlightening the public, facilitating activism, and serving as a resource to journalists.
The pages were partially declassified on July 15, 2016, and confirmed that, at the very same time the U.S. government was manufacturing bogus links between Iraq and 9/11, it was suppressing 28 pages of bona fide investigative leads pointing to supposed U.S. ally Saudi Arabia. Those leads, according to members of the 9/11 Commission, were never fully investigated.
Though 28Pages.org is now expanding beyond Saudi-9/11 links, the site’s name is an enduring reminder that the U.S. government’s execution of the war on terror is often characterized by dishonesty, hypocrisy and a purposeful lack of transparency.
