“File 17” offers glimpse into secret 28 pages about 9/11

Amid the clamor a year ago to release 28 still-secret pages of a congressional inquiry into the Sept. 11 attacks, the government quietly declassified a little-known report listing more than three dozen people who piqued the interest of investigators probing possible Saudi connections to the hijackers.

The document, known as “File 17,” offers clues to what might be in the missing pages of the bipartisan report about 9/11.

“Much of the information upon which File 17 was written was based on what’s in the 28 pages,” said former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham of Florida, co-chairman of the congressional inquiry. He believes the hijackers had an extensive Saudi support system while they were in the United States.

    The deepest darkest secrets of most governments usually involve mega embarrassment over dismissed warnings, plus mountains of money being wasted by gullible fools on insane projects that a child could unmask in 10 minutes.
