Former Senator Gets Call from White House on Secret “28 Pages” About Possible Saudi Role in 9/11

HeadlineApr 14, 2016

Former Florida Senator Bob Graham says he received a call from the White House this week over the 28 secret pages of a report on the 9/11 terror attacks. Graham has campaigned for years to have the documents declassified, saying they contain key details about Saudi Arabia’s role in the attacks. Graham told the Tampa Bay Times a presidential adviser informed him the declassification review of the documents would soon be completed. The call came after 60 Minutes ran an episode on the 28 pages Sunday. Graham spoke to host Steve Kroft.

Steve Kroft: “You believe that support came from Saudi Arabia?”

Bob Graham: “Substantially.”

Steve Kroft: “And when we say 'the Saudis,' you mean the government, rich people in the country, charities?”

Bob Graham: “All of the above.”
