eorge W. Bush has been silent on the “28 Pages” his administration classified during investigations into the events of September 11, 2001. After Bush left office in 2008, the new president Barack Obama promised to declassify the information, at the direct request of surviving family members of those who perished on that day. Barack Obama has yet to keep his promise, despite clear moral arguments that he do so.
The “28 Pages” have been the subject of discussions in America for years, only coming under much wider, global scrutiny after the popular CBS news magazine “60 Minutes” aired a segment on the controversial issue recently. One would have to talk directly to those at CBS with authority to air the segment to determine their intentions for giving it the go-ahead, but undoubtedly the Obama administration faces a situation most would find resembling “between a rock and a hard place”.
Mr. Obama’s predecessor George W. Bush finds himself in a “rock and a hard place” situation that is much more intense. With regard to the “28 Pages”, George W. Bush’s silence is part of the coverup over his inside knowledge of what happened on 9/11, and on the same level as his father George H.W. Bush’s stating he can’t remember where he was when John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas in November 1963.
Former Governor/U.S. Senator from Florida Bob Graham and many others are right to urge a new investigation into September 11, 2001. Any good, decent, moral man or woman on Earth wants the “28 Pages” declassified, an investigation that is 100% transparent with George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and others testifying under oath with cameras rolling, and the long-overdue arriving at the truth.
While George W. Bush has never explicitly called for the release of the “28 Pages” or a new investigation of 9/11, his statements while president could suggest he’d favor current efforts to arrive at the truth. One would have to speak to George W. Bush personally to find out his current views on this matter. It could also be the case that Mr. Bush is no longer passionate about the truth, but that his artistic endeavors have become the greater focus of his days since leaving public service.
Perhaps those lingering questions will become answered in the near future.
