Wyden Statement on Declassification of 28 Pages
Washington, D.C. –Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., issued the following statement on the declassification of 28 pages of the congressional Joint Inquiry into the September 11 attacks:
“There is no excuse for keeping these 28 pages secret for more than a decade, so this release is welcome and long overdue,” Wyden said. “It helps illuminate additional details about a major event in our country’s history. The FBI believes that they investigated all of these leads in the years after 9/11. But the best way to make that case to the public is to do it as transparently as possible.”
Wyden, one of the longest serving members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, served on the congressional Joint Inquiry into the September 11 attacks, and is the cosponsor of a bill calling for the release of the 28-page redacted section of the Joint Inquiry’s final report.
