Obama Could Stop Terrorism: Release the 28 Pages
Were Obama not a tool of the British Empire with their current bent on global thermonuclear confrontation, he might have gone on TV Sunday night with an anti-terror speech that would have genuinely assuaged the fear that is now building up in the souls of most Americans. That speech would start with a simple declaration:
"I hereby declare that I will release the redacted 28 pages of the 9/11 Joint Congressional Inquiry report, pages which were redacted to protect the complicity of our Saudi allies in those atrocities."
Writing in anticipation of Obama's Sunday prime time performance, Consortium News editor and noted investigative reporter Robert Parry effectively said just that, in a piece titled "Obama's Credibility Crisis." Americans no longer trust their own government, Parry says, because they've been lied to so many times. From Bush's WMD, to Obama's TPP and NSA, and now to the Syria war, America (and the world) has built up a "white rage," of resentment against the perpetrators. In fact, a recent State Department study of the effectiveness of U.S. government "anti-ISIS" internet propaganda showed that, in a direct comparison, even the "creepy head-choppers of ISIS" came out as more credible!
So, in what Parry calls the "Impossible Speech," Obama would first, announce the release of the 28 pages, and
"also could release other U.S. intelligence analyses on the role of the Saudis, Qataris and Turks in supporting al-Qaeda and ISIS. He could toss in what U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded about the 2013 sarin gas attack in Syria and about the 2014 shoot-down of MH-17 in Ukraine." As history showed, such a speech was not to be.
Another demand for release of the 28 pages Monday morning, came from (Obama impeachment advocator) Dave Lindorff. Writing in Counterpunch, Lindorff begins by noting the vastly differing responses to what he calls "left wing" (Muslim) terror, versus "right wing" (Christian) terror, e.g. the Oklahoma City bombing, or the more recent slaughter at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, or at an abortion clinic in Colorado Springs. The difference, he says, seems to boil down to the fact that "Muslims" killed 3,000 people on 9/11, so, in response, "Christians" get a free pass.
"Okay," Lindorff says in response, "that's the story line. But if we Americans really cared about that particularly heinous act of terrorism, we'd want to know how the hell it happened. Certainly we would be demanding that the U.S. government release those sealed 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission's official report [sic] which deal with the role of America's ally in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, which is known to have funded many of the alleged hijackers of the four planes involved. We haven't done that. It's still blacked out....
"We would also be demanding to know why the FBI lied at that commission hearing claiming that the black boxes of the two planes that hit the two towers were 'never recovered'....
If Obama continues the cover-up of the Saudi, Turkish, British and American hand in supporting the global terror apparatus blowing up the world today, he must be impeached. That would bring peace on Earth and good will toward all men.
The 28 pages were not redacted from the 9/11 Commission Report, but from the 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry—ed.
