WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, March 12, Representatives Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and Stephen Lynch (MA-8) will hold a bipartisan press conference on H. Res. 428, a resolution they have introduced to make public 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001 that were initially classified by President George W. Bush and have remained classified under President Barack Obama.  The resolution states that declassification of the pages is necessary to provide the American public with the full truth surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001, particularly relating to the involvement of foreign governments.

Also attending the press conference will be representatives from 9/11 Families United for Justice Against Terrorism and family members of victims killed at each of the three 9/11 attack locations.  Former Senator Bob Graham (D-FL), who co-chaired the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11, will speak via video message.
