Bob Graham hopes '60 Minutes' report will help get secret 9/11 records released
Former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham hopes that Sunday’s 60 Minutes report will help in a prolonged battle to declassify sensitive records on Saudi Arabian officials who helped hijackers plot to fly airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
The former Florida governor appeared on the CBS program to talk about 28 pages of a congressional report on 9/11 that has remained secret for 13 years. Graham was chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and co-chairman of a joint congressional commission that investigated the attacks and wrote the full 838-page report. He and several other commission members are pushing for release of the 28 pages that were classified.
“People would be surprised by the information,” Graham said.
