The 28 blacked out pages from the 9/11 report need to be declassified
That is the only way we are ever going to find out who was really responsible for 9/11. And if we are preparing to try the wrong people in New York.

Bush refuses to declassify 9-11 report

By Mike Allen

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON President Bush rejected a personal appeal from Saudi Arabia's foreign minister yesterday to release a classified section of a congressional report that has fed accusations that the kingdom aided the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Foreign Minister Prince Saud Faisal called it "an outrage to any sense of fairness" that the 28 blacked-out pages were causing Saudi Arabia to be "wrongfully and morbidly accused of complicity in the tragic terrorist attacks."

"This accusation is based on misguided speculation and is born of poorly disguised malicious intent," he said after a hastily arranged White House meeting.

Saud said his nation is being "indicted by insinuation" and cannot reply to blank pages. "We have nothing to hide," he said. "We do not seek, nor do we need, to be shielded."

The formal request was contained in a letter from Crown Prince Abdullah, who has developed a bond with Bush.

2. how is bush in a position to classify or declassify anything?
and I really don't believe much of the 9/11 report, redacted or not. let's see, bush/cheney didn't even want an investigation, did everything in their power to prevent one, didn't co-operate-- sorry, can't take most of the report seriously.

3. Not a good idea at all
Declassification would jeopardize national security*. As the GOP knows full well, transparency threatens our security. An informed public is simply not worth the risk.

*There is no way in the world that any politicians would support classification based on a false premise such as concealing corruption. That is an absurd notion.
