The White House is mocking Congress, saying they are having a “classic case of rapid onset buyer’s remorse,” after House and Senate leaders admitted that there may be unintended consequences of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act — the day after Saudi Arabia warned of consequences.
In the days after 9/11, while Ground Zero continued to smoulder, millions heard Dan Rather and various media outlets repeat vague and unconfirmed reports of arrests that took place that day. These rumors held that Middle Eastern men, were only presumably Arabs.
During Tuesday’s hearing of the House Foreign Relations subcommittee, former 9/11 Commission-member Tim Roemer refused to rule out the possibility that the Saudi Royal family knew about the plot prior to the attack — and urged the chairman to read the 28 classified pages of the 9/11 report.
In a bold move, Senator Rand Paul has filed amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to compel the Senate to publicly release the 28 classified pages of the 2002 investigation into the 9-11 attacks.
