Dem Rep Wants Obama Administration To Declassify Sept. 11 Documents

BOSTON (CBS DC/AP) — U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch is calling for the release of additional documents related to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The Massachusetts Democrat has teamed with North Carolina Republican Rep. Walter Jones to file a resolution urging the Obama administration to declassify 28 pages of a joint investigation by the House and Senate intelligence committees.

The 28 pages have remained classified since the findings were released in 2002.

Lynch said in a statement that he recently had the opportunity to review the classified section and believes the information should be made public.

Lynch said the 28 pages “contain information that is vital to a full understanding of the events and circumstances surrounding this tragedy” and that the family of the victims and the American people deserve a full accounting of the events.

More than 2,700 people died during the 9/11 terror attacks.
