Currently the resolution to declassify the 28 pages of the report was referred to the House Committee on Intelligence on Dec. 2nd, but will it gain support from other members in the House?
I asked Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC): “Will you support H. Res. 428 that declassifies the 28 pages in the 9/11 report?”
“There are a lot of classified documents in our government regarding war and those things should remain classified” said Duncan.
Many Americans, however, want to know what the government knows regarding 9/11. One mother on Facebook writes, “I’ve been fighting for 12 years to get these pages and both Congressman have told us they were “just shocked” to see what was in those pages. I want to see those pages. My son was murdered and I want to know what happened and what the government knows.”
Joan, one of the members of the 9/11 families told me, “We need these 28 pages to help us pass Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (S. 1535), which was introduced in the Senate on Sep 19, 2013. We believe these 28 pages will say what we have been saying all along.”
“9/11 families are not going away no matter what Congress thinks or what people think. My son’s death certificate says homicide on it, they all do. This was definitely funded. These hijackers were sponsored,” said Joan.
“My son was a fireman who died in the towers. He was only 32 years old and my only son. He left behind a 2 year old daughter and a 21 day old son. And I miss him every day. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss him. Not an hour goes by that I don’t think about him.”
Rep. Jones states, “Twelve years after the United States suffered a horrendous attack on our own soil, the families of the victims deserve to know all the facts concerning that tragic day,” said Congressman Jones. “Furthermore, the information contained in the redacted pages is critical to our foreign policy moving forward and should thus be available to the American public.
Foreign State Involvement Behind Attacks
If al Qaeda had support from foreign governments during 9/11, should the public know about it? Many Americans are demanding it, especially those who lost loved ones. Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) said they were “absolutely shocked” at the level of foreign state involvement in the attacks after reading the classified section of the 9/11 report.
Rep. Jones and Rep Lynch introduced H. Res. 428 this month that asks President Obama to declassify the entire 2002 report, “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001.”
The New York Post published an article this week stating that some information from this report already has leaked from the classified section, which is based on both CIA and FBI documents, and points back to Saudi Arabia, a presumed ally.
Paul Sperry states, “The Saudis deny any role in 9/11, but the CIA in one memo reportedly found “incontrovertible evidence” that Saudi government officials — not just wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and intelligence officers employed by the kingdom — helped the hijackers both financially and logistically. The intelligence files cited in the report directly implicate the Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks, making 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war.”
"persona of having a PhD in a science field"
Rodentess, what were your dead husband's degrees? You know, the guy you claimed discover the cure for cancer...but also told us he died of cancer.
Rodentess, who earlier today told me gravity is unproven, now tells me: "I recommend you drop the false persona of having a PhD in a science field. If it is so obvious to me who you claim lacks a GED, how do you think you appear to those who are educated?"
Rodentess, what keeps the planets orbiting the Sun?
I recommend you hold off taking the GED test.
I recommend you drop the false persona of having a PhD in a science field. If it is so obvious to me who you claim lacks a GED, how do you think you appear to those who are educated?
pathetic try retardo. Why would Obama's view on democracy be different for the Middle East than OUTSIDE the middle east? Are you now accusing him of Islamphobia or being anti-semitic?
"And nobody has mentioned the results of the recent study on second-hand-smoke (a LARGE study group that concluded what most smart people already knew...NO links to cancer from passive smoke)."
There have been studies after studies showing secondhand smoke does cause lung cancer and other cancers. Even the tobacco industry admitted they were lying all along. For some reason you have decided to focus on some freak study (if the study even exists) that supposedly gives a different result.
So tell me why you consider the freak study valid, and all the other ones invalid.
Today's close has to be a "high" for MO I think.
And nobody has mentioned the results of the recent study on second-hand-smoke (a LARGE study group that concluded what most smart people already knew...NO links to cancer from passive smoke).
So in conclusion, if you want to discuss MO, look elsewhere. This board is controlled by residents of a "happy-home" in Medical Lake WA. Apparently it is part of their therapy. They are not a well-balanced group of people.
Now if you want to stay around here, they have rules: DO NOT use the term "trannie". And never say anything bad about our clown in chief (Obama). And when "Sweet Pilo" asks about whether you are sexually attracted to it (refer to my first point above), use your judgement. Best to just say no but your call.
I did not say Afghanistan was part of the middle east
But Obama and Kroft were TALKING about democracy in the Middle East. So how is Obama's view on democracy in the Middle East in any way relevant to what is going on OUTSIDE the Middle East? It made no sense to bring in Afghanistan. If you say, "Obama is bad on oil policy," it would make no sense for me to say, "nuh-uh, he is GOOD on health policy."
Thanks for your non-sequiturs!
"Gravity for example, is an accepted theory because it always occurs on Earth in normal conditions. It remains however, unproven"
Rodentess, gravity has been observed in all sorts of astrophysical situations outside of the Earth. It is qualitatively just as well proven outside the Earth as on the Earth.
BTW, what do you think causes the planets to orbit the Sun?
"Yes it would be a logical conclusion, but not PROOOF. "
I recommend you hold off taking the GED test.
"Oh vermit, always lying, and always wrong. Sorry but even a 100% statistical response would not PROVE a cause"
Rodentess. I did not say a "100 percent statistical response" (fortunately as a rodentologist I ws able to decode her gibberish expression) would necessarily prov3e causality. Sometimes it would and sometimes it would not. In the situation I described earlier where 100 percent of people having their nose fall off, it would inply causality. Even if 5 percent had their nose fall off it would imply causality. On the other hand, if the historical record was that every time the National League team won the World Series Miami got hit by a severe hurricane' despite the fact that there was a "100 percent statistical response" [sic], causality would not be very plausible.
Nowhere did I imply that Obama was "right" about the Middle East -- indeed I called his views "naïve." (Apparently she has no idea what that word means). But the correctness of his views is of course irrelevant. The ONLY issue at hand was whether his comments related to Benghazi specifically, and of course they didn't. Indeed, she cites a whole litany of countries (Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel) that Obama might have been referring to (as well as one -- Afghanistan -- that he clearly wasn't), further proving the only point I was trying to make -- which is that his comments were about the Middle East in general, and not about the Benghazi killings in particular.
Well I stand corrected retardo. For help with your own reading comprehension, I did not say Afghanistan was part of the middle east. My failing was in assuming that Obama believed in democracy in all countries, not simply the middle east. Thanks for clarifying that he is in fact, the dictator in chief.
Rodentess, I never said correlation proves causation. What happened was that Statistics Rodent (and perhaps you) claimed correlation NEVER proves causation. What I said was that there are certain instances where correlation proves causation, and some instances when it does not. For example, if 100 people were given an experimental drug, and within 10 minutes, all of their noses turned purple and fell off (while no such thing happened to a good control group) the only reasonable thing to conclude was that the nose problem was caused by what they were given. That does not mean that in *all* circumstances correlation implies causation.
Oh vermit, always lying, and always wrong. Sorry but even a 100% statistical response would not PROVE a cause. If you were a real PhD, you would know that. Yes, it does imply, Yes it would be a logical conclusion, but not PROOOF. Gravity for example, is an accepted theory because it always occurs on Earth in normal conditions. It remains however, unproven.
