Programming Note: Rep. Massie will join Glenn Wednesday night to discuss this story. Watch tonight on TheBlaze TV.
Earlier in July, Rep. Massie (R-KY) posted a message on Facebook calling for 28 pages from the “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001"* report to be released to the American people, claiming they will change people's understanding of the event and the days leading up to the tragedy.
Int he video, Massie said, " As I read it -- we all had our own experience -- I had to stop every couple pages and just sort of absorb and try to rearrange my understanding of history for the past 13 years and years leading up to that. It challenges you to rethink everything."
"It challenges you to stop and rethink everything. It challenges what you know about history. Good heavens, what have we done? Have we kept secrets from the American people?" Glenn asked. "How could you hold information back when we are going to war, when we are trying to say we are the righteous one, you are the unrighteous one, that's because -- you're for us or against us. When you are doing that, if you don't give the people every bit of information, you are part of the problem. And so because our interest might be oil or might be the Republican or the Democratic party or whatever, because our interest says whatever it is, keep that quite evident. Our values have to say expose this. Expose this. And let the chips fall where they may."
Glenn said he doesn't think there is any evidence in there that would support the 9/11 Truther movement or that the terror attack was some kind of inside job, but the news does suggest there might be something in there that would be embarrassing to people in power or that the American people have not been given the full context of what happened.
"America, not because of our interests, but because of our values, you shouldn't sleep. You should not be able to stay -- you should not be able to go to sleep at night, knowing that this is going on. You need to stand up and say I need to see those pages. We need to stand up with Republicans and Democrats and independents. We need to stand up, not as people of party, not as people of special interest, but Americans with a certain set of values that we all share. That's where we are. We can play in our interests or we can play to our values. I choose values, because we can unite on those," Glenn said.
