Don’t bother asking Bob Kerrey about the existence of a top secret portion of the 9-11 Commission’s 2004 report.9-11 report good

“I can’t confirm or deny it,” Kerrey tells Nebraska Watchdog.

Kerrey, a former Nebraska governor and U.S. Senator, was a member of the 10 member commission which, according to its charter, prepared a “full and complete account” of the 2001 terrorist attack.

Congressman Stephen Lynch says a 28 page sealed document not only exists, he’s read it and wants President Obama to declassify it.

“In this case, transparency is the way to go,” Lynch tells CNN.

The Massachusetts Democrat is a key member of the House committee which tracks the flow of funds to terrorist groups.

“I think (releasing) it could help to inform our decisions going forward,” said Lynch.

“Remember, there was a very extensive report, the 9-11 report, hundreds and hundreds of pages. These 28 pages were actually excised from that report. These are not just redactions.”

According to Kerrey, Nebraska Watchdog is one of two news operations asking him to comment.

He says he got an “email from Al Jazeera” but has not responded to them.
