#1 "This chapter was kept out because of concerns about sensitive methods, investigative actions, and the investigation of 9/11 was still underway in 2002," Brennan said on NBC's "Meet the Press." He said information in the 28 pages hasn't been vetted or corroborated,

Alright then, after 15 years of careful 'vetting and corroboration,' where is your corrected intelligence update ?

Clumsy attempt at discrediting Director Brennan, very clumsy.

#2 TRANSLATION: "Oh, yeah. The al-Sauds were in it up to their necks, but even at this late date people might get all revenge-y, so we are gonna sit on this hard."

#3 Wasn't Brennan a recent convert to Islam?

Even if he isn't, it is well known he has significant ties to SA.

#4 Inaccurate information is not the same as classified. The government should not be able to hide things just because they cocked them up.

Most Transparent Administration Ever?

Well it is pretty "transparent" what they are up to with this. Ass covering.

#6 Brennan assumes a glassy-eyed stare: "The al-Sauds are the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human beings I've ever known in my life."

#7 they contain inaccurate, un-vetted information

So why did we have a Commission then if it can't do its job?

#8 How is it the X-files didn't use the 28 pages to insinuate aliens were involved? The story lines write themselves and they'd probably have gotten CIA assistance.

#9 The unemployment numbers, GDP estimates... are inaccurate yet the GIVERnment publishes them routinely.

#10 Of course the Saudis wittingly allowed the OBL monster to grow...and now they encourage the ISIS brand. First glance - Brennan knowingly attempts to deceive by stating that no Saudi "individual" provided financial support to AQ...stupid. This deception provides evidence that Brennan is a liar and causes us to look a little deeper. Now we are troubled by his carefully qualified statement we lack evidence that the Saudi government, any official nor individual provided financial support. One - OBL was an Saudi and funded the planes operation...with help from his freinds. Two - he qualified "financial support" - what other types of support do we have evidence of that the Saudis provided? Fast forward to today - are the Saudis supporting ISIS? There is a noted lack of ISIS trouble in the Sunni kingdom and now the Saudis threaten us to keep our distance... What does the CIA know?

#13 The imams are controlling this and the government can not go against them. The soddies are hostage to the Islamic leaders. This is well known and a great example of why there needs to be a deprecation of church and state. Yes soddies are running most of the AQ operations and Iran is running the rest. But in reality their religious leaders are running it and the Kings would never dare to go against them.

What's next? It was a Swiss plot?

#18 Didn't Nixon's press secretary notoriously say something to the effect that "these statements are no longer operative."? that about sums up the article IMO. Feel free to correct If I have the citation's words incorrect. They were and remain a marvel of Orwellian doublespeak.
