On the eve of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, activists from around the world prepare to come to NYC to continue seeking answers about who funded the attacks and what caused the buildings to fall at near free-fall speed – but do the American people even care?
On Friday July 15, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) published the newly declassified 28 pages of the 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001. The 28 pages were classified by former President George W. Bush shortly after the report was released in 2002.
The long-classified pages make up the bulk of a section titled “Part 4: Finding, Discussion and Narrative Regarding Certain Sensitive National Security Matters.” Former Senator Bob Graham, a previous chair for the House Intelligence Committee who has been extensively involved in the fight to release the pages, told CNN that he was “very pleased” by the announcement.
“It is going to increase the questioning of the Saudis’ role supporting the hijackers,” Graham told CNN. “I think of this almost as the 28 pages are sort of the cork in the wine bottle. And once it’s out, hopefully the rest of the wine itself will start to pour out.”
The report states:
While in the United States, some of the September 11 hijackers were in contact with, and received support or assistance from, individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government. There is information, primarily from FBI sources, that at least two of those individuals were alleged by some to be Saudi intelligence officers.
“The report also reveals that the suspected Saudi intelligence officers worked for companies that had ties to both the Saudi government, and Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden,” Tony Cartalucci recently reported. “It is very clear that Saudi Arabia played a role in the 9/11 attacks, as well as in terrorism of all kinds around the world before and after the attacks.”
Cartalucci continues, “Those who spirited Saudi agents and officials out of the country, protecting them from further investigation regarding their role in 9/11, are likely linked to those Americans who helped their Saudi counterparts organize and carry out the attacks.”
In spite of the clear connection between officials connected to the Saudi government and the alleged hijackers, the Saudi government and kingdom declared the release of the 28 pages a victory, claiming that it vindicates their nation.
“Now we know for sure that the conspiracy theorists were wrong: There is no smoking gun in the 28 pages. All they contain is a list of questions and possible leads for exploration in later investigations,” Abdullah Al-Saud, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, wrote in an op-ed for the L.A. Times.
Unfortunately, if unsurprisingly, the conspiracy theorists are still not satisfied. They point out that portions of the 28 pages remain classified and insist that the American government must be hiding something nefarious from the people.

Indeed, Al-Saud is correct, many Americans and researchers of the 9/11 attacks are not prepared to concede just yet. Despite what the Saudi government claims, the documents show clear ties to Saudi Arabia. Still, many in the 9/11 Truth movement are cautious of the 28 pages, with some calling the whole fiasco a psychological operation being conducted on the American people. What is the purpose of the PsyOp? The idea would be that “the powers that wish they were” allow a controlled release of the low hanging fruit (28 pages) and focus attention on Saudi Arabia rather than possible connections to the U.S. government, Pakistan, or Israel.
This allows the public (and some 9/11 researchers) to feel like there has been a victory and now we can all go back to normal life. Also, this keeps the conversation on the 28 pages and not on the other anomalies which occurred on September 11, 2001. There is also the fact that it has been public record for many years that the majority of the alleged hijackers had ties to Saudi Arabia.
The fact that these pages would be released at all should be celebrated, but it should not cause the 9/11 Truth Movement to rest for a single moment. With the 15th anniversary approaching in less than 2 months this a grand opportunity to have conversations about the many, many questions surrounding the attacks. After all, even if the Saudis were involved, it does not explain how the buildings could fall at near free-fall speed or how or why World Trade Center 7 fell despite not being hit by a plane.
Regardless of whether or not you believe the 28 pages are the end of the 9/11 Truth search or just another distraction, the American people are tired of being lied to by their government. There is a growing discontent in the nation right now and many of the crimes perpetuated by the government against the people have been allowed in the name of keeping people safe from terror attacks. Simply put, exposing 9/11 destroys the whole Police and Surveillance State.
For 15 years architects, engineers, actors, scientists, pilots, firefighters, activists, and family members of the victims have raised a wide range of questions related to the funding of the attacks, the physics of the buildings’ collapse, the possibility of controlled demolition or other exotic weapon used to bring the buildings down, and much, much more.
For the 15th anniversary, the collective “9/11 Truth” movement will descend on New York City to protest and rally in the streets. If you have questions about 9/11 please come to New York City or organize in your city. Activists with We Are Change NYC will rally at Ground Zero and other important sites throughout the city on Saturday September 10 and Sunday September 11.
