Financing 9/11: “The 28 Pages That President Bush and the Deep State Did Not Want You to See” (2016)

The 28 pages refers to the final section of the December 2002 report of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities before and after the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, conducted by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. This section is titled “Part IV: Finding, Discussion and Narrative Regarding Certain Sensitive National Security Matters,” and summarizes investigative leads suggesting possible financial, logistical and other support provided to the hijackers and their associates by Saudi Arabian officials and others suspected of being Saudi agents. It was declassified on July 15, 2016.

The 28 pages state that some of the September 11 hijackers received financial support from individuals connected to the Saudi Government. FBI sources believed that at least two of those individuals were officers in the General Intelligence Presidency, the primary intelligence agency of Saudi Arabia. The U.S. Intelligence Community believed that individuals associated with the Saudi Government had ties to al-Qaeda.

Plaintiffs in a 9/11 civil suit against Saudi Arabia have alleged that a November 1999 attempt by two men with longstanding ties to the Saudi government—Mohammed al-Qudhaeein and Hamdan al-Shalawi—to get inside an America West Airlines plane’s cockpit was “a dry run for the 9/11 attacks.” The FBI reportedly confirmed that the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, D.C. paid for Qudhaeein and Shalawi’s tickets to board that flight. The 28 Pages quoted a document from the FBI’s Phoenix Field Office as stating: “Phoenix FBI now believes both men were specifically attempting to test the security procedures of America West Airlines in preparation for and in furtherance of UBL [Osama bin Laden]/Al Qaeda operations.”

Some leaked information from CIA and FBI documents allege that there is “incontrovertible evidence” that Saudi government officials, including from the Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles, gave the hijackers both financial and logistical aid. Among those named were then-Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar and Osama Bassnan, a Saudi agent, as well as American al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta, and Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of King Fahd.

In 2016, following a declassification review, the Obama Administration approved the declassification of the partially redacted 28 Pages, the Joint Inquiry’s only wholly classified section. The document was then sent to congressional leadership and on July 15, 2016, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence approved publication of the newly declassified section.

This declassification followed years of lobbying by families of those killed in the September 11 attacks, insurance companies and others. One influential figure in this effort was Bob Graham, who was a member of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities before and after the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 as a Senator from Florida. Among other things, he said, “the F.B.I. has gone beyond just covering up … into what I call aggressive deception.”

In addition to the events documented in “The 28 pages”, US federal government agencies seem to have had three other apparently independent sources of advance warning of the September 11 attacks that were not reported to the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities before and after the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001. One was a Saudi family in Sarasota, Fla., which was known by the FBI to have had multiple contacts with the hijackers-to-be training nearby, until the family fled just before the attacks. Another was the Able Danger data mining operation, which reportedly identified two of the three terrorist cells, who subsequently executed the September 11 attacks. A third was an Iranian expatriate, who had warned the FBI multiple times of the impending September 11 attacks. Sibel Edmonds was reportedly fired for insisting that the evidence they had not be suppressed as she says it was.

In April 2016, 60 Minutes aired a segment on the drive to declassify the 28 pages, featuring interviews with former Senator Graham, former Congressman and 9/11 Commission member Tim Roemer, and former 9/11 Commission member John Lehman, as well as attorneys representing 9/11 family members, survivors, and insurers. On the afternoon before the 60 Minutes segment aired, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement urging the release of the pages. The Saudi government voiced support for the declassification of the 28 pages, saying it would “allow us to respond to any allegations in a clear and credible manner”. Congressman Stephen Lynch said, “I think there may be some duplicity on the part of the Saudis in terms of them desiring this to be disclosed.”

  3. All Derivatives are derived from a "Root" thus the name
    Be that as it may, wonder how many so called Experts or even claiming as Educated has any inkling or iota of "Know How" & the "Correlation" between the Root & Derivatives
    To make things worse, when the Root is deliberately depleted and the resultant value of Derivatives
    Last but not the least, whether it is liked or not Gold is the only repeat only Universal Fungibile Asset thus all conceivable Assets are Directly or Indirectly gauged against Gold however one tries to distort or dilute the relationship period

  4. Portland,Oregon is connected to 911. Muhammad Otta took the red eye there the day before the event then flew back early Sept 11th. Look at Portland now! The buildings were blown up from the bottom up not from a plane hitting the 90th floor then destroying all the undamaged parts into the basements! BS!

  5. With actual “facts”, evidence of crimes of government against Americans, why? Why have there NOT been any actions to hold these criminals accountable? Not doing anything for this issue only empowers the criminals now to continue their actions against Americans!
    Get a sheriff, get a lawyer and get together with Jack Maxey and his plight and……… Do Something! It wasn’t funny and isn’t now!

  6. Thumbs up to you all who are standing up to the evils of war and the sadistic psychopathic warmongers.

  9. First, last and only time FAA/NORAD not in charge of "Drills". " On May 8, 2001 – four months prior to 9/11 – the president placed Dick Cheney in charge of "[A]ll federal programs dealing with weapons of mass destruction consequence management within the Departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Justice, and Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal agencies…" This included all "training and planning" which needed to be "seamlessly integrated, harmonious and comprehensive" in order to "maximize effectiveness." This mandate created the Office of National Preparedness in FEMA, overseen by Dick Cheney." Cheney was placed directly in charge of managing the seamless integration of all training exercises throughout the entire federal government and all military agencies. On 9/11 Cheney oversaw multiple war games and terror drills, including several exercises of NORAD, the Air Force agency whose mandate is to "watch the sky." Jet fuel does not burn hot enough to melt steel. Not enough Jet Fuel on 2 Planes(2nd one in had no passenger windows and a GPS/INS "Precision Strike remote control on where the fuselage and right wing meet. Presidents' May 8, 2001 directive: The press release was issued May 8, 2001, about a month prior to the change in NORAD’s intercept protocols. While a bit vague in some areas, it does establish certain things. Dick Cheney was charged to oversee the creation of an approach that was “seamlessly integrated and harmonious.” He was also placed in a supervisory management role over the activities of the entire effort, which were operational under FEMA’s supreme command. “Planning and training” were specifically addressed so this would automatically include war game exercises like Tripod II and all the NORAD/Joint Chiefs wargames of 9/11: Vigilant Guardian, Vigilant Warrior, Northern Vigilance, etc.

  10. Hmmm. All this seems to paint a picture to others off shore…
    Great work here. But, to imply it to push the thought it didn't have connections at the very highest levels of our gov.
    Lol. Please.
    Treason at the highest levels.
    But! They are all just puppets.

  11. I want to know who are the people behind this YouTube channel. Who are you and I only found it recently
    But why are you doing podcasts about all the stuff that past presidents did unlawfully and why is it so important for the general public need to know when we already know all the horrendous acts that past leaders did and in my opinion should all be in jail but they got away with a lot
    So what's your point
    Going over over and over the despicable history of the leaders in America
    In the end they got wealthy billionaires
    And no accountability at all.
    That's why America is fast or is already one of the most hated countries in the world
    The Americans were the only country that dropped atomic bombs in Japan. No other country in the world did this but the American can leaders
    Your legacy you have none. Liars corrupt fraud you name it
    Russia did not drop any news clear bomb n another country you the leaders of America
    We are sick your lies.

  12. Oh, Snap.. these cats are sponsored by THE RON PAUL INSTITUTE. So approach this content knowing these cats are affiliated with Ron Paul, and his foul mis-fire Rand. Rand, Proud Acme of the.. Paul..ehh dynasty.
