During an appearance on Cable News Network (CNN), Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir addressed the recent release of the “28 pages” that had been redacted from the 2002 Congressional Joint Inquiry. “The only surprise in the ’28 pages’ is that there was no surprise,” said Minister Al-Jubeir.
