Declassifying the 28 pages from the 9/11 Commission report would be a mistake as they contain inaccurate information which may be used to link Saudi Arabia to the terror attacks, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director John Brennan said.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last week, Congressman Walter Jones told Sputnik that US lawmakers were to meet with Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper to discuss the declassification of 28 pages of the joint congressional report on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
"I think there's a combination of things that are accurate and inaccurate [in the report]… I think the 9/11 Commission took that joint inquiry and those 28 pages or so and followed through on the investigation and then came out with a very clear judgment that there was no evidence that… Saudi government as an institution or Saudi officials or individuals had provided financial support to al Qaeda," Brennan said on Sunday as quoted by The Hill portal.
On September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda suicide bombers hijacked four passenger planes in the United States, crashing two into New York's World Trade Center towers, another into the Pentagon and the fourth was sent in the direction of Washington D.C., presumably to attack the White House or the Capitol.
After the attacks, a joint congressional committee issued an investigative report published in 2002, with the exception of a 28-page chapter reportedly dealing with foreign financing of the terrorist attacks.
