28 pages of 9/11 inquiry being released after 13-year wait

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government is preparing to release a once-classified chapter of a congressional report about the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that questions the role Saudi nationals played in helping the hijackers.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says release of the chapter is "imminent."

Later investigations found no evidence that the Saudi government or senior Saudi officials knowingly supported those who orchestrated the attacks.

But lawmakers and relatives of victims, who don't believe all Saudi links to the attackers were thoroughly investigated, pushed for more than 13 years to get the 28 pages released.

They have spent years in a secure room in the basement of the Capitol. Pelosi tells reporters Friday that they will be released later in the day pending agreement by the committees of jurisdiction.
