There are exactly 28 pages, buried deep within an investigative governmental report, on the findings of 9/11 heavily redacted from the American people that is causing quite a stir. Rumored to be hidden within these pages are a series of lesser known facts that will be sure to, “anger, frustrate and embarrass,” the American people regarding their current understanding of 9/11 and the events both leading up to and during that day.
As we’ve reported earlier, Congressmen have been made available the opportunity to travel to the Capitol in order to read these pages still being withheld from the American people, and those that have, are nothing short of shocked. Lastly, Kentucky Republican Congressman Thomas Massie has read the document and is now not only demanding fellow Congressmen read the documents, but that they be released to the American people as they too have the right to know.
Appearing on The Glenn Beck Program, Massie described of the, “anger, frustration and embarrassment,” the American people would surely feel after reading these 28 pages. He furthermore detailed how he himself had to reconsider everything he had known as “truth” as the document revealed otherwise.
According to Massie, “It is sort of shocking when you read it. As I read it, we all had our own experience. I had to stop every couple of pages and absorb and try to rearrange my understanding of history for the past 13 years and the years leading up to that. It challenges you to rethink everything.”
Explaining as much as he possible could, speaking within the legal means of classified material, Massie vaguely described:
“Based on my reading of the documents, I am confident that making these 28 pages public would not damage our national security. I challenge all of my colleagues in Congress to read the 28 pages on behalf of their constituents and to cosponsor this bill. Understanding what enabled this tragedy to occur is fundamental to drafting a strategy for avoiding another tragic event.
He concluded by saying, “If we’re going to use 9/11 as a motivation to get involved in these civil wars in the Middle East,” that both the American people and Congressional legislators, “need to read these pages and understand what truly caused 9/11 and who our friends are and who our enemies are.”
So what do you guys think – being “the American people,” do we have the right to know what is contained in these 28 pages? Do you believe we would be as shocked as Massie describes we will be to learn the hidden truths? Feel free to let us know your thoughts by leaving us a comment below.
