Missing ’28 Pages’ of the 9/11 Report Released into Blitzkrieg of World Events

Politics / Iraq War Jul 19, 2016 - 06:21 PM GMT

Politics

We have been massive and outspoken proponents that 9/11 was an inside job since our inception in 2010.  Five or more years ago that was a fairly extreme stance.  We’d often get people calling us “crazy,” but I’m used to it.

In the last few years, however, it appears that anyone who has a decent internet connection and has looked into the details of what happened on September 11, 2001, probably agrees with our stance.

For the last few years this has caused an outcry that the “missing 28 pages” from the 9/11 Report be released.  Eventually, as the pressure increased, we became confident the pages would be released and began to wonder about the timing.


We were right to do so. Just hours before the 28 pages were released there was reported to be a “terrorist attack” in Nice, France killing 84 (and already heavy signs of it being a false flag).  Just as the 28 pages were released a coup in Turkey encapsulated the front pages and TV screens of most American homes.  And, soon after, more police shootings in Baton Rouge further took attention away from the release.

This is very similar to how 9/11 itself was a diversion from the missing $2.3 trillion that Donald Rumsfeld announced they had lost on September 10, 2001.

The next day, the accounting department of the Pentagram was blown up and mainstream media programming never mentioned it again.

But, finally,the infamous “28 pages”from a congressional inquiry about potential Saudi Arabia ties were released. These pages were actually compiled before the creation of the 9/11 Commission and are based on “raw data” that was not at the time further evaluated.

Here’s how the Atlantic summarized the pages:

Former Senator Bob Graham of Florida, who chaired the Senate side of the congressional investigation … tried to get the pages released for years … While he hasn’t been able to discuss what is in the pages because they were classified, he had promised “a real smoking gun.” …

The pages that were released Friday appear to fall short of that promise—though they do raise questions about senior Saudi officials and their connections, sometimes tenuous, to some of the hijackers. The pages allege that while some of the hijackers were in the U.S., they were in contact with, and at times received assistance from, people in the Saudi government, including two Saudi intelligence officers. Officials in the Saudi government, including members of the royal family and embassy staff, at times provided large sums of money, fake passports, and information to people assisting the hijackers while they were in the U.S., the pages allege.

Reactions have been fairly predictable, with the Obama administration and officials in Saudi Arabia explaining that nothing in the pages contributes to raising further suspicions about Saudi involvement in 9/11. Of course, the hijackers, with one exception, were from Saudi Arabia. This has given rise to ongoing skepticism regarding the lack of Saudi involvement in the attacks. Lawmakers and relatives of the victims of the 9/11 attacks had wanted the 28 pages made available for some 13 years.

In publishing the pages, the administration anticipated criticism by making clear there was no direct link to Saudi Arabia. Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary: “This information does not change the assessment of the US government that there’s no evidence that the Saudi government or senior Saudi individuals funded al-Qaida. The number one takeaway from this should be that this administration is committed to transparency even when it comes to sensitive information related to national security.”

He added, “The intelligence community and the 9/11 commission, which followed the joint inquiry that produced these so-called 28 pages, investigated the questions they raised and was never able to find sufficient evidence to support them. I know that the release of these pages will not end debate over the issue, but it will quiet rumors over their contents – as is often the case, the reality is less damaging than the uncertainty.”

The most interesting information to emerge from the 28 pages may have to do with Osama Basnan, a man in contact with two of the 9/11 hijackers in California. He reportedly was sent a check from Prince Bandar, former Saudi ambassador to the US, for $15,000 and Basnan’s wife got one too. Basnan lived near the two hijackers – Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi – and admitted to the FBI that he helped the pair.

The scramble to position the pages within the context of the larger investigation took place immediately. Adam Schiff, ranking member of the House intelligence committee, said, “I hope that the release of these pages, with appropriate redactions necessary to protect our nation’s intelligence sources and methods, will diminish speculation that they contain proof of official Saudi government or senior Saudi official involvement in the 9/11 attacks.”

Diminish speculation?  It is proof of the Saudi government’s involvement!

But there are larger issues looming over this release. What the 28 pages will not do is quiet suspicion regarding the process of the commission itself. In fact, back in 2009, the Senior Counsel for the commission, John Farmer, published a book called “The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America’s Defense on 9/11.″ In it, he explained that the summary of the events provided to the commission was based on false testimony and therefore could not be trusted.

Farmer is currently Dean of Rutgers University’s School of Law. He is a former Attorney General of New Jersey and had the cooperation of other members of the commission when he published book, which says matter-of-factly that he and the others were lied to by the FBI, CIA, White House and NORAD. He has stated…“at some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened… I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. This is not spin.”

The 9/11 Commission head, Thomas Kean, Republican governor of New Jersey, has been quoted as saying the following: “We to this day don’t know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us, it was just so far from the truth. . . ”

Farmer doesn’t provide any answers in his book, but he rejects every part of the report that he and the others worked on. He is accusing Washington, in other words, of systematic perjury. Following Farmer’s book, which received significant coverage in the media, nothing else has been done. The false testimony has not been revisited. The lies remain standing.

The release of the 28 pages really does nothing to change the false conclusions or even shed any real light on what took place. The Saudi government, if honestly appraised, does little internationally that does not have the approval of the West, especially Britain and the US. So the 28 pages, at best, might have helped establish some sort of connection between Saudia Arabia, Washington, London and, maybe, Israel.

What is clear – and the release of additional documents makes no difference – is that at the very highest levels there is a coverup of what really happened. Chances are the reason for the coverup is because of substantial involvement of the US, Britain and Israel in 9/11 and complicity in murdering 3,000 US citizens. This is the reason the truth will never be told unless it is physically dragged out of people involved. Since that’s not going to happen anytime soon, we’ll simply have to live with the knowledge of this heinous cover-up… just as we have for nearly 15 years now.

The release of these 28 pages is just another distraction, a side show.  It does nothing to explain how two planes caused three buildings in New York to fall at free fall speeds, defying physics, as thousands of Architects and Engineers have risked their lives and livelihood to proclaim.

What you need to realize, if you have not already, is that your government is not your friend and is in fact willing to remove you if it benefits a handful of in-charge controllers pulling the strings in the shadows. If you have not internalized this, you need to. And then you need to take appropriate action (start by subscribing to The Dollar Vigilante newsletter where we give you the unvarnished truth of what is really going on and how to not only survive through it but also prosper).
