HR 428 sponsors to increase pressure for release of 9/11 Commission’s 28 classified pages
The effort to declassify the 28 page section of the 9/11 Commission report will continue in 2015 as the bipartisan group who initially sponsored HR 428 will introduce the resolution to the new Congress. A press conference will be held next week to discuss the resolution’s current status.
JONES, LYNCH, AND GRAHAM TO HOST PRESS CONFERENCE ON RESOLUTION TO DECLASSIFY 9/11 REPORT
WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, January 7, Representatives Walter B. Jones (NC-3), Stephen Lynch (MA-8), and Senator Bob Graham (FL) will hold a bipartisan press conference on H. Res. 428, a resolution that calls on President Obama to declassify the 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001 that were initially classified by President George W. Bush and have remained classified under President Barack Obama. Senator Graham was the chair of the Select Committee on Intelligence when the Joint Inquiry was written and has repeatedly called for the 28 pages to be declassified. H. Res. 428 states that declassification of the pages is necessary to provide the American public with the full truth surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001, particularly relating to the involvement of foreign governments. Congressmen Jones, Lynch, and Massie will introduce H. Res. 428 into the 114th Congress.
Also attending the press conference will be representatives from 9/11 Families United for Justice Against Terrorism, and family members of victims killed in the 9/11 attacks.
Wednesday, January 7 at 9:30 AM:
Press conference on the status of H. Res. 428 in the new Congress
Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3)
Congressman Stephen Lynch (MA-8)
Senator Bob Graham (FL)
Representatives from 9/11 Families United for Justice Against Terrorism
