Video: CIA Veteran Ray McGovern on the 28 Pages and HRes 428

At a November 22 speaking engagement hosted by the Schiller Institute in New York City, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern endorsed House Resolution 428 and discussed the secret, 28-page finding on foreign government involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

In remarks spanning more than 20 minutes, McGovern—who helped launch Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)—puts the 28 pages in the context of the intelligence community’s advance awareness of the presence of 9/11 hijackers and its withholding of that knowledge from the FBI. He also shares interesting insights into the constraints placed on both the joint House/Senate intelligence inquiry that produced the 28 pages and the 9/11 Commission as well.

He concludes by summarizing the significance of the 28 pages this way: “There are so many things that need to be put together. And I think those 28 pages are going to start the unraveling just like a mummy. If you take off that little first linen, you’re going to unravel the whole thing.”
