Brainerd Dispatch: Nolan calls for 9-11 report release

US Rep. Rick Nolan on Tuesday called for making public 28 pages of the 9-11 Commission's official report which he said describe in detail who likely financed the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

"The American people have a right to know what some of us already know: who financed the Saudi (al-Qaida) terrorists who attacked our nation on September 11, 2001," Nolan said in a statement. "To that end, Republican Congressman Walter Jones of North Carolina and I have offered a bipartisan resolution urging that 28 highly classified and revealing pages of the official 9-11 Report locked in a vault under the U.S. Capitol Building be made public. I'm one of the few Members of Congress who took the initiative, and was given the special security clearance to enter that locked and guarded room and read the transcripts. The information presents a clear and startling picture of who financed the attacks."

Nolan made a similar call in October of 2015
