Damning information linking the Saudi government to 9/11 can be found in 28 redacted pages of an intelligence report, according to former Florida Sen. Bob Graham.

Graham was the co-chair of the report and served on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee before and after 9/11. The Democrat has been on a crusade in recent weeks to get the 28 redacted pages declassified.

Graham told Yahoo News Wednesday that ties between Saudi Arabia’s government and 9/11, “are so multiple and strong and reinforcing that it’s hard to come away from reading all this material and not feel that there was a support network and that support network came from Saudi Arabia.”

“They will also open the path to other materials. There are thousands of pages of documents, which speak to the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the 19 hijackers,” Graham added.

The Democratic former senator may get his wish since the Senate passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act Tuesday, which would allow the families of 9/11 victims to sue the Saudi government for their alleged involvement in the attack.

The bill is now working its way through the House of Representatives — if it passes, it will land on President Barack Obama’s desk. The White House opposes the bill.

Fifteen of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia. If the bill becomes law, Saudi Arabia has threatened to sell $750 billion worth of U.S. assets.
