The head of the Central intelligence Agency (CIA) John Brennan spoke out against the publication of the secret report on the terrorist attack of 11 September 2001. The statements of Brennan aired on NBC in the 5th anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden.
According to the head of the CIA, an investigation of the Congress was only a “preliminary report”. Subsequently, the issues raised were “thoroughly investigated and examined” by the Commission for the investigation of 9/11.
“They [members] made a very clear judgment that there was no evidence that would indicate that the Saudi government as a whole or Saudi officials individually, has provided financial support to al-Qaeda,” said Brennan.
“I think some people can grasp unconfirmed, unverified information <…>, to indicate the involvement of Saudi Arabia, which I believe is very, very erroneous,” he said.
Brennan described the attitude of the United States with Saudi Arabia as “very healthy”. “There are a few differences in opinions about how to address some of the regional problems,” he said, adding that “it’s just very useful”.
Report on the investigation into the attacks was published in 2002. One part by volume of 28 pages have remained closed to the public decision of President George W. Bush. In the American media leaked information about the contents of this part from people who were familiar with her. According to unconfirmed reports, it was said about the possible involvement of certain individuals and legal entities of Saudi Arabia to these attacks.
Earlier in April, the FoxNews channel, citing former Senator Bob Graham, who was part of the Commission of inquiry, said that President Obama could remove a signature stamp “top secret” with those 28 pages of the report on the investigation of the terrorist attacks.
