Secret Files Could Shed New Light On Sept. 11th Attacks

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration will likely soon release at least part of a 28-page secret chapter from a congressional inquiry into 9/11 that may shed light on possible Saudi connections to the attackers.

Those pages – now kept in a secure room in the basement of the Capitol – address specific sources of foreign support for some of the hijackers while they were in the United States.

Bob Graham, who was co-chairman of the bipartisan panel, and others say the documents point suspicion at the Saudis. They’ve denied allegations that they assisted in the attacks.

The former Democratic senator from Florida says an administration official told him that intelligence officials will decide in the next several weeks whether to release at least parts of the documents.
