Here is some more hand wringing over the 28 pages:
The recently released “28 pages” are a snapshot in time. They came at the conclusion of the joint House-Senate Intelligence Committees' inquiry and before the 9/11 Commission started its work in 2003. Those pages and many others previously released posed questions for further investigation, based on the committees’ review of raw intelligence and FBI reports. The 9/11 Commission took the baton and followed up on most of those leads, but not all.
Among those dangling strands of the investigation, two stand out. The first, the subject of these 28 pages, is what role Saudi government officials played in supporting al-Qaeda and the 9/11 plot.
The second question, with which the 9/11 Commission struggled but was unable to answer, is why the CIA failed to tell the FBI and the White House when the agency knew about al-Qaeda terrorists in the United States.
I believe that the two questions may be linked and that a major element of the 9/11 tragedy may remain unrevealed: a possible failed CIA-Saudi spy mission on U.S. soil that went bad and eventually allowed 9/11 to proceed unimpeded.
You can read the rest @
Fifteen years, and that's the best you can do? This is bullshit.
Here are two of the obvious things everyone is ignoring:
1. CIA can't legally spy on US soil. So a "CIA-Saudi" spy mission here would have been anathema, wouldn't it?
2. The Saudis would not have operated here without US approval. If Saudis supported the 9/11 attackers, then the US government WAS involved in the 9/11 attacks. Saudis did not schedule the drills for that day, and Saudis did not shut down our air defense systems.
Folks, you either can let the CIA continue to run wild and wreck your country, or you can rein them in and shut them down. Criminal acts by the CIA DO NOT enhance our safety or security.
