A secret section of the 9/11 Commission Report that reportedly details Saudi Arabian funding for the attacks contains “uncorroborated, un-vetted” information and should not be released, the director of the CIA has said.
John Brennan, who runs the intelligence agency, voiced his support for keeping the notoriously redacted ’28 pages’ in the 2004 text from the public domain for fear of fuelling unfounded rumours.
He insisted the section was “thoroughly investigated and reviewed” by the official inquiry into 9/11.
Mr Brennan also maintained America had a “very strong” relationship with Saudi Arabia, a country from which 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers hailed.
“This chapter was kept out [of the public domain] because of concerns about sensitive methods [and] investigative actions,” he said on NBC’s Meet The Press.
