READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
As part of a day which revealed the existence of a top secret portion of 2002's 9-11 report, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Representative Stephen Lynch to join the program and share his expert insight into the validity, and value, of the information.
A Massachusetts Democrat, Lynch has read what's estimated to be 7200 words worth of sealed documentation, and along with his colleague, Republican Walter Jones, he's encouraging Congress to declassify the report in its entirety:
"In this case, transparency is the way to go," 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, the 28 pages that I read and that Walter Jones read, have actually been pulled from the report completely."
Quoted as having been "absolutely shocked" by what he read, Lynch told Piers Morgan that the releasing of all the missing pages could result in long term benefits for the nation.
"I think it could help to inform our decisions going forward," noted the co-chair of the Task Force on Terrorism and Proliferation Financing. "Not just looking back in a historical context, but I actually think it will help the quality of our decision making going forward."
Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Lynch, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
