Read 28 Page 9/11 Classified Report about potential Saudi Arabia ties released

The U.S. government released a once classified section of the report about the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on Friday.

President George W. Bush had the chapter classified to protect intelligence sources and methods, the Associated Press reports.

The 28 pages were withheld from the 838-page report on the orders of President George W. Bush

The 28 pages of the report on the 2002 investigation focus on potential Saudi links to the 2001 aircraft attacks on the United States, in which nearly 3,000 people died.

President Barack Obama's administration sent a declassified version of the 28 pages, redacted to protect intelligence sources and methods, to Congress on Friday morning. The House intelligence panel released it a few hours later.

The House Intelligence Committee voted to release the pages, which are part of a larger 2002 investigation into the 9/11 attacks.

This newly released section questions the Saudi government’s involvement with the hijackers and those who orchestrated the attacks. Later investigations found no link between the Saudi Arabia and those who carried out the attack.

Fifteen of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers were Saudi citizens.

"According to various FBI documents and CIA memorandum, some of the September 11 hijackers, while in the United States, apparently had contacts with individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government," the report said, giving a catalog of alleged links.

They included reported contacts between Saudis in California and a statement that a man who was reportedly a Saudi Interior Ministry official stayed at the same Virginia hotel as one hijacker in September 2001.

Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, Abdullah al-Saud, said the country welcomed the release.

"We hope the release of these pages will clear up, once and for all, any lingering questions or suspicions about Saudi Arabia's actions, intentions, or long-term friendship with the United States," he said.
