    President Barack Obama failed in his attempt to suppress interest about the remaining pages in the congressional report on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, advocacy group 28 Pages founder Brian McGlinchey told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — The 28 pages of the 2002 US joint congressional inquiry report into the terrorist attacks of September 11 allegedly show official support by the government of Saudi Arabia for the terrorists who took part in the attacks.

    "The president would have us believe that it takes nearly two years to review just 28 pages," McGlinchey stated. "It’s pretty clear to us that he’s been simply hoping interest in the 28 pages would wither away. Instead, interest has surged to new highs."

    Obama is scheduled to travel to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this week, where he will meet with King Salman on April 20.

    Three congressmen, including Walter Jones, Stephen Lynch and Thomas Massie claim to have read the classified documents and do not believe the documents could threaten US security if they are declassified.

    In 2015, the lawmakers introduced a resolution urging President Obama to declassify the materials.

    McGlinchey, a former Army officer and financial services executive, founded the information and activism hub 28Pages.org in 2014. His stated goal is to persuade the US government to declassify the 28 pages. Since its creation, the site has been visited by people from more than 190 countries, according to McGlinchey.
