The Religious Freedom Coalition has reported almost from the day of the 9/11 jihad attack that Saudi Arabian interests were involved because of the racist, misogynistic and violently anti Western version of Islam that is financed by the royal families. On the one year anniversary of the attack I wrote a column that has since been published and reprinted by numerous outlets concerning events around the jihad attack. Numerous organizations, including this one, have worked for the release of the 28 pages of redacted material from the official report that most likely show the involvement of the Saudi regime. Finally a major news organization has revealed the probably extent of the Saudi involvement in 911.

For 13 years, the 28 pages have been locked away in a secret vault. Only a small group of people have ever seen them. Tonight, you will hear from some of the people who have read them and believe, along with the families of 9/11 victims that they should be declassified.
Bob Graham: I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many of whom didn’t have a high school education– could’ve carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States.
