On July 15, 2016, a victory for transparency: Read the declassified 28 pages
FACT: 28 pages documenting specific indications of Saudi government links to the 9/11 hijackers were hidden from the American people for 13 years.
Congressman Thomas Massie described the 28 pages as “shocking” and said, “I had to stop every couple pages and…try to rearrange my understanding of history. It challenges you to rethink everything.”
Concealing these 28 pages:
- Shielded sponsors of extremism from accountability—which encourages their continued sponsorship and endangers countless lives around the world
- Prevented the American people from making informed judgments about the nation’s counter-terror strategy and foreign policy—past, present and future
- Undermined 9/11 family members working to achieve courtroom justice against those who aided and abetted the deaths of their loved ones
