“Now that the Senate has unanimously passed the Justice Against Support of Terrorism Act (JASTA), that now obliges the Obama administration to release the information it has about Saudi involvement including the 28 pages” stated Barry Kissin, a 28 Pages Coalition spokesperson.
In 2003, 50 senators signed a letter to G.W.Bush, including Hillary Clinton and John Kerry (both Obama’s secretaries of state) urging him “to declassify the 28-page section that deals with foreign sources of support for the 9-11 hijackers.”
Recently, 40 members of Congress co-sponsored bills to declassify these redacted pages: H.R.14 and S-1471. Former chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee, Bob Graham has called the redaction of the 28 pages part of “an aggressive deception.”
We will hold placards saying: “Obama: Open the 28 Pages!”, “Obama’s 8-year cover-up is a crime!”, “Obama: what are you hiding?”, “Obama Hides Bush lies!”, “Obama, come Clean: Open the 28 Pages”, and “Obama, You Promised: Open the 28 Pages!”
Other placards will say: “Royal Threats Show Saudi Guilt”, “Tail Wags Dog?”, “Diplomatic Immunity for Royal Terrorists is not National Security”, “9/11 Families say ‘Open 28 Pages’” and “Support HR-14 and S-1471.”
The demonstration is endorsed by Code Pink and Popular Resistance.
