Allen West posted an article on his website on Friday about the growing demand to release the twenty-eight pages of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 that remains classified. Representative Thomas Massie (R, KY-4) has added his name to H.Res.14, which was introduced by Congressmen Walter Jones (R, NC-3), Stephen Lynch (D, MA-8).
This is the resolution:
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
January 6, 2015
Mr. JONES (for himself, Mr. LYNCH, and Mr. MASSIE) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Select Committee on Intelligence (Permanent Select)
Urging the president to release information regarding the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks upon the United States.
Whereas the contents of the redacted pages are necessary for a full public understanding of the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, attacks upon the United States;
Whereas the executive branch’s decision to maintain the classified status of these pages prevents the people of the United States from having access to information about the involvement of certain foreign governments in the terrorist attacks of September 2001; and
Whereas the people of the United States and the families of the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks deserve full and public disclosure of the results of the Joint Inquiry: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that–
(1) the President should declassify the 28-page section of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001; and
(2) the families of the victims and the people of the United States deserve answers about the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, attacks upon the United States.
So far there are 19 co-sponsors of the resolution. Senator Rand Paul introduced a nearly identical resolution in the Senate to have the 28 pages declassified.
