Some members of Congress and families of victims of the September 11th attacks are urging President Barack Obama to make public 28 pages from the intelligence report about the 2001 terrorist attacks, which remain classified.

Although lawmakers at Wednesday's news conference on Capitol Hill could not specify what's in the documents, there is speculation that they reference Saudi Arabia supporting the terrorists responsible for the attack.

Terry Strada, who lost her husband in the World Trade Center, said that declassifying the documents would help make America safer.

"There was another country or maybe a few other countries involved with the financial support to these 19 hijackers," Strada said. "We believe in these 28 pages, we will learn who those people are that sponsored the terrorist acts."

Lawmakers pushing for the release said that the documents would not threaten America's security.

A bill has been introduced in the House to declassify the documents.
