Despite repeated Bush administration claims that it had no inkling prior to 9/11 that terrorists might use airplanes in suicide missions on American soil, the New York Times reported that the FAA received 52 intelligence reports referencing Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda in the months before September 11. What’s more, the FAA warnings were documented in detail by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission almost six months ago — well before the November election. Over the objection of the Commission, the Bush administration classified this particular report and delayed its release.

While the 9/11 Commission submitted its “complete” report on the events leading up to the 2001 attacks on August 26, 2004, crucial sections of the report were not declassified and made available to the public until January 28, 2005 — less than 48 hours after Condoleezza Rice was confirmed as Secretary of State. (In sworn testimony before the Commission, Rice categorically dismissed the idea that the Bush administration received warnings that hijacked airplanes could be used to attack American targets.)

The bipartisan 9/11 Commission was created in the wake of our national tragedy to rise above partisan politics and tackle the tough questions vital to keeping our citizens safe from terrorist attack. The Congressional Committee on Government Reform should hold hearings to determine whether the Bush Administration improperly classified findings from the Commission to protect key administration officials from scrutiny and influence voters in an election year.

Call to action Urge your representative to call on the Committee on Government Reform and its chairman Rep. Tom Davis to hold hearings on whether the Bush administration delayed the release of findings by the 9/11 Commission in a cynical, election-year ploy.

Deadline: Ongoing

Letter:

I was alarmed to read that despite repeated Bush administration claims that it had no inkling prior to 9/11 that terrorists might use airplanes in suicide missions on American soil, the FAA received 52 intelligence reports referencing Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda in the months before September 11.

Even though this information was documented by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission over six months ago — well before the November election — the Bush administration classified this particular report and delayed its release until just two weeks ago.

Equally disturbing is the fact that the report calls into question the veracity Condoleezza Rice‘s sworn testimony before the Commission. Could it be a mere coincidence that the Bush administration’s declassification of the report came less than 48 hours after Rice was confirmed as Secretary of State?

The bipartisan 9/11 Commission was created in the wake of our national tragedy to rise above partisan politics and tackle the tough questions vital to keeping our citizens safe from terrorist attack.

I am writing to you to urge you to call on the Congressional Committee on Government Reform to hold hearings to determine whether the Bush administration improperly classified findings from the Commission to protect key administration officials from scrutiny and influence voters in an election year.

Please let me know how you intend to proceed on this issue.

Sincerely,
