President Obama to decide in 60 days whether to declassify report that could tie Saudi Arabia to 9/11 attack on America
This comes on the heels of a 60 Minutes news show Sunday where it came up.

Former Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Bob Graham, 78, a Florida Democrat, says he “will not relent until he forces the government to make public a secret section of a congressional review he helped write that implicates Saudi Arabian citizens in helping the hijackers.”
“I think its implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many didn’t have a high school education, could have carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States,” Graham told the 60 Minutes reporter.
Graham said information allegedly ties a Saudi family in Sarasota, Florida, to the 9/11 terrorists .He said the FBI is denying the information and practicing “aggressive deception.”
Graham says the “smoking gun” could be photos of the hijackers’ vehicles entering the Saudi family’s gated estate. The Florida Saudis are reported to have fled the U.S. just prior to 9/11, The hijackers reportedly trained near the Saudis’ home.
Currently a federal judge in Florida is reviewing 80,000 documents relating to this event in an effort to decide what to release.
U.S. President Barack Obama, who has refused to declassify the secret report along with President George W. Bush, in the past have cited national security reasons.
A White House official this week told Graham that Obama is considering the possibility.
Now with Obama slated to travel to Saudi Arabia for a summit with Gulf leaders next week, this decision might be put on the front burner. Ya think maybe?
Bernie Sanders addresses more than 28,000 at Washington Square Park Wednesday night with his campaign of “political revolution”
Greenwich Village, New York — A crowd of more than 28,000 persons turned out for a rally for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders tonight in Washington Square Park.
Sanders said it was a “pivotal moment in American history. Voters are asking themselves why should we accept more income and wealth inequality to be worse here in America than any time since 1928? Why should we accept a proliferation of millionaires and have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country in the world? These are the questions that millions of Americans are now asking themselves and what they are concluding is that establishment politics and establishment economics are not gonna address those crisis.”
Sanders described his campaign as one of “political revolution.” “It is not just about electing a President, it is about creating a government that creates a decent standard of living for every man, woman, and child. What this campaign is profoundly about is understanding that real change never comes from the top down, it is always from the bottom up”.
Sanders hit on several other issues, including corrupt campaign financing, before closing saying “This is a tough race for us.” But he said that when he looked out at the Washington Square Park crowd and “the thousands of more people we saw in Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester, I think we’ve got a surprise for the establishment. I think if we have a large voter turnout, on Tuesday, We’re gonna win this.”
