Congressman Massie: There Will Be ‘Anger, Frustration, and Embarrassment’ When Redacted Pages of 9/11 Report Come Out

Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) is one of a number of lawmakers urging the government to declassify 28 redacted pages of a report investigating the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Massie said at a press conference earlier this month that when he read the redacted pages of the report, titled “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001,” he had to stop “every couple pages” to try to rearrange his “understanding of history.”

“It challenges you to rethink everything,” he said.

Massie appeared on The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday to speak more on the subject and — though he couldn’t reveal any details — he said there will be “anger, frustration, and embarrassment when these 28 pages finally come out.”

“I was gravely disturbed by your description, where you said you had to stop and re-figure history,” Beck said. “Can you give us any other description other than that?”

Does it really make sense

for Congressman Massie to be thrown in a cage? He signs a contract. Certain people (i.e. Snowden) think that it is the morally correct thing to do to break that contract for the greater good, but the greater good would have to be served.

I don't think Massie would be serving the greater good by doing what you say. He is doing the greater good now by bringing light to this situation.

I didn't say throw him in a cage

I said that it looks like he is not honoring his primary oath, by honoring a secondary or tertiary (or lower) oath.

But by the downvotes, apparently there are a lot of people who don't understand first principles. (And I'm acerbic.)

Edit: and, I do think he would be performing "an act of greater goodness" if he were to talk about what he knows, now, before being "given permission". Not "the greater good" as you put it as I'm no collectivist.

Or to put it another way, "no man can have two masters", and that's what he is demonstrating, that he has a master other than the primary oath he has taken. It's a sad thing to see.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Downvotes don't mean you are wrong

I would stand with the 1 out of 100 if I was sure I was right. The greater good is not a collectivist term. It is my interpretation of the best outcome. It is a value judgement between two actions. I look at the cost/benefit analysis of the situation. Imagine the repercussions for liberty oriented Republicans if Massie were to disclose this information (right or wrong in doing so).

So, if you were to take your line of thinking (which may be the most pure and just), then you would have to have a large enough part of the populace that was ready to carry on with non-compliance or some other form of disobedience. Otherwise, it is not a very bright strategic action. Massie and Jones are pushing the limits of what most politicians would even dare of doing, and that should merit some sort of recognition (as much as you can give a politician). Ron Paul pushed the limits about as far as you can go (at least with the current education and psyche of the populace), but you have to remember he didn't accomplish anything legislatively. His whole purpose was to educate and set the stage for others.

Hey Guys! Don't get your hopes up!

The whole truth will still not come out and nobody is going to jail. This will be a "we're sorry...we messed up," kinda thing....betcha.

I dislike and have never been a fan of Glenn Beck.

That said, Thomas Massie kicks ass. I strongly support that guy.

Here's the section, Lindsey Graham was lead investigator lol

From Wiki: Redacted sections

28 pages of the 800-page report (about 7200 words) were omitted from the final report. Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) read the redacted section after a letter-writing campaign, and say that this section details high-level involvement by the Saudi Arabian embassy in receiving the hijackers on US soil, arranging for visas and other paperwork. [3]

In Los Angeles, a reception committee welcomed two of the hijackers. In San Diego they were provided rooms, rent and phones. In Washington, then-Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar and his wife sent checks totaling some $130,000 to Osama Bassnan, a Saudi agent. American al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki met them in Falls Church, Virginia and helped them acquire apartments and IDs before they attacked the Pentagon. In Sarasota, FL., 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta and other hijackers visited a home owned by Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of King Fahd. The home was later abandoned.

And all those hijackers are

in some other country, somewhere, laughing their butts off and enjoying the good life. Just like the israeli dancing psychos, they were flown out of here, after they performed their parts. None of them died, they just helped convince the sheeple.

Probably about the Saudis, and probably stuff we already know

Glenn: Will it tear the country apart?
Massie: No.

Translation: The information will be underwhelming at best.

the end part

where he says if Bush did something wrong, that was the most telling part of the whole thing.
