The 28 Pages: There Was No ‘There’ There. Now Let’s Get On With Fighting Terrorism

Abdullah Al-Saud Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the U.S.
The now-famous 28 pages redacted from the report of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, have been released, and their contents should put an end to suspicions that officials of the government of Saudi Arabia were involved or complicit in any way with the attack.

My government had called for the release of these pages from the moment that they were redacted, back in August 2002. We were convinced at the time that the suspicions were unjustified, but our hands were tied as long as they remained classified. We could neither lay the suspicions to rest in the public arena nor pursue any leads those pages might have contained and prosecute anyone who might have been involved.
