The 28 pages are very lightly redacted and list the names of people who are known to have helped the hijackers and if there is any evidence they knew what they were up to. There seems to be no consensus on how valuable the 28 pages are.
House intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes:
“It’s important to note that this section does not put forward vetted conclusions, but rather unverified leads that were later fully investigated by the intelligence community.”
Former Florida Sen. Bob Graham claims the documents point out who the financiers of 9/11 were.
The newly declassified document , with light redactions, names people the hijackers associated with before they carried out the attacks, killing nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and on a plane that crashed in Pennsylvania. It identifies individuals who helped the hijackers get apartments, open bank accounts, attend local mosques and get flight lessons. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals and several were not fluent in English and had little experience living in the West.
