White House Continues to Dodge 28 Pages As Heat Intensifies

Jan. 25, 2015 (EIRNS)—Appearing on CNN on Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough once again dodged the question of releasing the 28 pages. The following exchange took place between CNN host Michael Smerconish and McDonough on Sunday morning:

SMERCONISH: One final foreign policy question. Does the passing of King Abdullah mean the administration now will release the 28 pages pertaining to the Saudis and September 11?

MCDONOUGH: Well, this is obviously an issue that you have been working on for some time. And this goes back across administrations. Were the president will be visiting Riyadh to express our condolences and to underscore the important issues that we have going on in the region. Im not going to get involved in the 28 pages now, Michael, any more than I did before.

Smerconish interviewed Terry Strada and Sen. Bob Graham several weeks ago, promoting release of the 28 pages.
