File 17 is glimpse into still-secret 28 pages about 9/11

    There’s been much clamor about releasing 28 still-secret pages of a congressional inquiry into the Sept. 11 attacks.

    But drawing less notice is the fact that the government quietly declassified a report listing more than three dozen individuals who piqued the interest of investigators probing possible Saudi connections to the hijackers.

    That report was written by two investigators who worked on the congressional inquiry.

    Former Sen. Bob Graham was co-chairman of that review, and he believes the hijackers had an extensive Saudi support system while they were in the United States. Graham says much of what’s in the declassified file is based on what’s in the 28 pages. He’s hoping the 28 pages will come out this summer or fall.

    Saudi officials say allegations of Saudi complicity are baseless.
