Release the 28 pages!
: Well, it sounds as if even the Saudis agree that we should release the 28 pages of the 9/11 report about them:
Saudi Arabia has angrily rejected US allegations that the kingdom may have had a hand in the September 11 terror attacks.
The Saudi Ambassador to the United States called the claims, contained in a long-awaited Congressional report on the attacks, “blatantly false”.
Prince Bandar bin Sultan suggested in a statement released after the report was made public yesterday that sections of the document dealing with possible Saudi involvement had been blacked out because they could not be substantiated.
The White House has refused to declassify 28 pages of the report – a decision that drew sharp rebukes from numerous members of Congress, who called on the White House to allow the information to be made public.
The Ambassador said: “In a 900-page report, 28 blanked-out pages are being used by some to malign our country and our people.
“Rumours, innuendos and untruths have become, when it comes to the kingdom, the order of the day.”…
“Saudi Arabia has nothing to hide. We can deal with questions in public, but we cannot respond to blank pages.”
So let’s forget the rumors, innuendos, and untruths and release the 28 pages!
And by the way, Mr. Saudi, if you haven’t seen the 28 pages, how do you know they’re not true?
