Joe Biden Moves Toward Declassification Of September 11, 2001 Material

One week after the twenty years of the September 11, 2001, The president of United States, Joe biden, signed this Friday a decree to review documents related to the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. In this way, the intention to declassify that material is addressed. It is a promise that the president had made in early August.

Biden asked the Justice Department and other relevant agencies to review the declassification, the White House said in a statement. The measure is taken just a few days before the commemoration of the twentieth anniversary of the attacks, which left 3,000 dead.

The decree requires that “the Attorney General make the declassified documents public in the next six months.” Biden stressed that “we must never forget the permanent pain of the families and loved ones of the 2,977 innocents who died in the worst terrorist attack against the United States in our history. For them, it was not only a national and international tragedy. It was a personal devastation. “

He added that his “heart goes out to the 9/11 families who are suffering,” and that his government “will continue to respectfully commit to the members of that community.”

At the beginning of August, The Justice Department announced that the FBI had decided to review the 9/11 documents to “identify additional information for release as soon as possible.”

The decision comes after more than 1600 people affected by the attacks send a letter to Biden asking for the declassification of information.

The attacks of twenty years ago led to the so-called “war on terrorism” of the government of George W. Bush. With the promise of fighting the Al Qaeda network and its leader, Osama bin Laden, for the September 11 attacks, The United States invaded Afghanistan, an operation that a few days ago culminated in the total withdrawal of troops and the return to power of the Taliban.
