What is in the 28 classified pages from the 9/11 Commission Report that we have never seen? Did most of us even know that parts of the report were kept from the public? Why are some of Senators and Representatives like Florida Sen. Bob Graham and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. now calling for their release? Is this all politics or is it something else? Is it because if Saudi Arabia may be exposed as having been involved at the government levels? This would be an embarrassment to them and expose some lies in the administrations position. Lies are the normal in politics. America deserves the truth so that citizens might judge for themselves.

Obama to decide on declassifying 9/11 documents within 60 days
President Obama will decide whether to declassify 28 pages of sealed documents — which some suspect show a Saudi connection to the 9/11 attacks — within 60 days, according to a former senator who co-chaired the 2002 joint congressional inquiry into the attacks.
Former Florida Sen. Bob Graham told Fox News late Tuesday that the White House had informed him that a decision on whether to declassify the documents would be made in one to two months.
Graham, who has pressed for the documents to be made public, told Fox he was “pleased that after two years this matter is about to come to a decision by the president.”
Both the George W. Bush and Obama administrations have refused to unseal the documents, claiming it would jeopardize national security. Critics claim the reluctance is a calculated move to hide Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the attacks that killed almost 3,000 people.
Obama had come under renewed pressure to release the documents ahead of a planned presidential trip to Saudi Arabia for a summit of Gulf leaders next week.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. told CBS’ “60 Minutes” she believes the documents, which she has seen, should be made available to the family members of 9/11 victims.
