Pete Hoekstra to Obama: Declassify the Full 9/11 Report


By    |   Friday, 22 Apr 2016 05:43 PM

Pete Hoekstra, the former chair of the House Intelligence Committee, believes the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 report that allegedly contain information linking Saudi Arabia to the 2011 terror attacks should be made public.

Hoekstra, who has read the documents, tells Newsmax TV's J.D. Hayworth on "Newsmax Prime" the American public deserves to know what they say.

"Many of us on the committee, part of that process, believe this information should have been made public at that time. The administration said no," says Hoekstra, an international terrorism expert. "I still believe, especially 14 years later, that this information needs to be made public. The families, the American people, we need to see what's in that information."

The 9/11 Commission Report was issued in July 2004 and all but 28 pages have been held back. The documents are kept under lock and key in a classified document facility. Only a small number of people have read what's in them.

President George W. Bush originally ordered those pages to remain classified, and President Barack Obama has done the same. More than 14 years after the attacks that killed almost 3,000 people, there are new calls for the documents to be made public.

"I can tell you that there's been a tremendous amount of speculation what's in these 28 pages and that's why it's actually doing more damage than good," Hoekstra says. "Put it out there. Could it be talking about Saudi? Could it be talking about Iran?

"Why would a Bush administration want to keep this information secret? Why would an Obama administration? You think that their reasons would be very, very different."
