Walter Jones’s Message to Schiller Institute Conference:
Americans Need the Truth about 9/11
The following video-recorded message was sent to the Schiller Institute Conference by Rep. Walter Jones, Republican of North Carolina.
I’m Walter Jones. I represent the Third Congressional District of North Carolina, in the United States House of Representatives. I’m pleased today to share some thoughts with you who are attending the Schiller Institute 30th Anniversary Conference, and I cannot think of a better title to be discussing than “It Is Time To Create a World Without War.”
So thank all of you who are in attendance, and let me share a few thoughts with you.
I have joined Steven Lynch and Thomas Massie. Steven Lynch, a Congressman from Massachusetts, and Thomas Massie from Kentucky, and myself, have joined in a letter to President Obama, written on April 10, [2014,] and I’ll read the first sentence to you. Let’s just make it short.
“We write today to urge you to declassify the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities before and after the terrorist attack on September of 2001.”
How can you have a democracy, or a republic, and not have sunshine in your government? And I, quite frankly, have read the 28 pages. So have Steven Lynch and Thomas Massie; and a few other Members of Congress in both parties have taken the time to read the 28 pages.
We had a news conference several months ago, and we brought the families in who had lost loved ones [on 9/11]. If the President could just see the pain in the eyes and the words of those family members, then hopefully, he would declassify these 28 pages.
The 28 pages have nothing to do with national security. If it did, I wouldn’t be speaking to you today. It does not. It talks about relationships in the international world that we live in. And who we can trust and not trust. And I would encourage you today, as you leave the conference over the next couple days, to contact your Members of Congress and ask them to look seriously House Resolution 428, which was introduced by Congressman Steven Lynch [D], Congressman Walter Jones, and ask that Member of Congress to do what is right for the families of 9/11.
When you have people like Sen. Bob Graham, who for years, ever since he left the Senate, have been calling on the President, and all the Presidents, and the Senators, and the House members, to declassify these 28 pages, the families deserve to know what’s in the 28 pages, and the American people do as well.
There is no democracy, there is no republic, without the American people knowing the truth about 9/11. Thank you.
