Poll Context: The 9/11 report is available for anyone to read except for the still-censored “28 pages”; which allegedly implicates the Saudi government in the 9/11 attacks. The recent “60 Minutes” broadcast stated that the Saudi role in the attacks has been “soft-pedaled” to protect America’s delicate alliance with the oil-rich kingdom.
Now people are accusing the government of a total cover up which they say goes beyond locking up 28 pages of the Saudi report in a vault in the US Capitol basement. They say that investigations were throttled and co-conspirators were let off the hook.
According to Paul Sperry of the NYPost,
Case agents I’ve interviewed at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Washington and San Diego, the forward operating base for some of the Saudi hijackers, as well as detectives at the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department who also investigated several 9/11 leads, say virtually every road led back to the Saudi Embassy in Washington, as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles.
Yet time and time again, they were called off from pursuing leads. A common excuse was “diplomatic immunity.”
Those sources say the pages missing from the 9/11 congressional inquiry report — which comprise the entire final chapter dealing with “foreign support for the September 11 hijackers” — details “incontrovertible evidence” gathered from both CIA and FBI case files of official Saudi assistance for at least two of the Saudi hijackers who settled in San Diego.
So do you believe the government hid Saudi Arabia’s involvement in and support for the 9/11 attacks to protect its relationship and interests with the kingdom?
