Congressional 9/11 Report

Dec. 4, 2013 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee.

The following statement was issued by Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) on Dec. 3, calling upon President Obama to declassify the censored 28-page section of the report of the Joint Congressional Inquiry on the 9/11 attacks. According to the Boston Globe, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) has issued a similar statement.

Jones Introduces Resolution
To Declassify 9/11 Report

Dec 3, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, Congressmen Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and Stephen Lynch (MA-8) introduced H. Res. 428, a resolution to make public 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001 that were initially classified by President George W. Bush and have remained classified under President Barack Obama. The resolution states that declassification of the pages is necessary to provide the American public with the full truth surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001, particularly relating to the involvement of foreign governments.

"Twelve years after the United States suffered a horrendous attack on our own soil, the families of the victims deserve to know all the facts concerning that tragic day," said Congressman Jones. "Furthermore, the information contained in the redacted pages is critical to our foreign policy moving forward and should thus be available to the American public. If the 9/11 hijackers had outside help — particularly from one or more foreign governments — the press and the public have a right to know what our government has or has not done to bring justice to all of the perpetrators."
