President Obama is allegedly set to decide whether to declassify 28 pages of sealed documents which some Commentators suspect show a Saudi connection to the 9/11 attacks. The information comes from a former senator who co-chaired the 2002 joint congressional inquiry into the attacks.
Former Florida Senator Bob Graham told Fox News that the White House had informed him a decision would come from Obama in one to two months. Obama had come under pressure to release the documents ahead of a planned presidential trip to Saudi Arabia for a summit of Gulf leaders next week.
Graham has been pressing for the public release of the documents and is convinced that the terrorists were helped by the Saudi government: "The Saudis know what they did. We know what they did. There are a lot of rocks out there that have been purposefully tamped down, that if were they turned over, would give us a more expansive view of the Saudi role."
