There is reportedly, a document – or I should say 28 pages of a document – deemed classified by the Bush administration that is fully redacted. Only three Congressmen have read this document in its entirety, and each has come out shell shocked.
The most recent reader, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY, has even gone so far as to co-sponsor a bill demanding its declassification as well as demand Obama uphold the responsibility he has to the American people.
The two former readers, Reps. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., and Stephen Lynch, D-Mass started the now snowballing efforts, by taking a peek at the documents and although were sworn to secrecy, described the absolute need of making them available to the American people.
“I was absolutely shocked by what I read,” Jones said. “What was so surprising was that those whom we thought we could trust really disappointed me. I cannot go into it any more than that. I had to sign an oath that what I read had to remain confidential. But the information I read disappointed me greatly.”
There is a certain amount of responsibility held upon the shoulders of the government to be honest with the American people in such a way to ensure the maximum amount of accountability. Whatever is in these documents is being withheld for a very specific reason and its unacceptable that only some of our elected officials have come forward demanding the documents be released.
Although it’s unclear, the document is rumored to contain incriminating evidence on Saudia Arabia regarding their role in the attacks. Despite them claiming they had nothing to do with it, many have remained skeptical on their place in all this, the document may just shed some definitive light on the matter.
Now that yet another elected official has come forward to explain the responsibility they have and the absolute necessity of declassifying these documents, what do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below.
