In a few days the U.S. will commemorate the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Unfortunately Washington and both parties refuse to tell the American people the full story of what happen on that day.
As Benswann.com reported, former Texas Republican Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul announced a campaign to raise support for House Resolution 428 which seeks to declassify 28 pages of the Senate report on the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Now CNN’s Jake Tapper is challenging President Obama to release the documents.

According to Tapper’s report, 9/11 family members say President Obama personally promised he would declassify those 28 pages, but now they say the White House does not even acknowledge them, or their requests.
Immediately after Tapper’s report aired, the National Security Council spokesperson Caitlin Hayden issued this response:
“Earlier this summer the White House requested that ODNI review the 28 pages from the joint inquiry for declassification. ODNI is currently coordinating the required interagency review and it is ongoing.”
Has the campaign to declassify the 28-pages gained any real traction? Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) is sponsoring a bill, H. Res 428 along with Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Steve Lynch (D-Mass.) in a bi-partisan attempt to release these documents. Unfortunately the resolution only has 10 sponsors so far.
“I do not think a nation like America will remain strong if the nation does not demand the truth,” said Rep. Walter Jones in a press conference earlier this year.
A grassroots organization has launched 28Pages.org to raise awareness of the documents and encourages other Congressmen to co-sponsor H. Res 428.
