White House Soon to Reveal Secret Pages From The 9/11 Al-Qaeda Attack

It was reported on Sunday that the US government will soon reveal some parts of the 28-page secret chapter from a congressional inquiry into the September 11 terrorist attack that could explain on the likely connections of Saudi to the attackers.
The said document was kept in the secured room of the Capitol basement which contain details from the joint congressional inquiry into "specific sources of foreign support for some of the 9/11 hijackers while they were in the United States."
Bob Graham, bipartisan panel co-chairman and others stated that the documents point suspicion at the Saudis, reports Bloomberg.
"I hope that decision is to honor the American people and make it available," Graham told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "The most important unanswered question of 9/11 is, did these 19 people conduct this very sophisticated plot alone, or were they supported?"
Even with the information provided in the presently secret 28-page document, the 9/11 Commission discovered "no evidence" of "Saudi government involvement at the highest level of the 9/11 attacks." Although there is no evidence of involvement found, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist as mentioned by Tim Roemer, a member of both joint congressional inquiry and 9/11 Commission, based on a report from Inquisitr.
Saudi government "welcomes" the declassification of the 28-pages indicating that they have been "wrongly and morbidly" accused of financing and complacency in the assault. They stated that the revelation of the documents will do them more good than harm. They also prefer the public release of the document for them to "respond openly to allegations in a clear and credible manner."
The issue had shadowed President Barack Obama's recent visit to Riyadh, with the Saudis threatening to sell off almost $750 billion of American assets if the Congress passes the bill. The classified pages are in a titled file called "Finding, Discussion and Narrative Regarding Certain Sensitive Narrative Matters", never published from the Joint Congressional Inquiry findings into the attacks that took 3,000 lives and injured 6,000 more, according to the Independent report.
The malfeasance of Saudi involvement in the attacks comes against a background to the ultra-conservative Kingdom's financing extreme Islamist groups, frequently with the motivation and support of the West.
