9/11 documents, what will they uncover?

Washington, Sep 4 (Prensa Latina) President Joe Biden signed an executive order directing the Department of Justice and other government agencies to review documents related to the FBI´s 9/11 investigations for potential declassification.

Biden´s order requires Attorney General Merrick Garland to release the declassified documents publicly over the next six months.

The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Democrat Adam Schiff stated this panel would oversee the review to guarantee ‘maximum degree of transparency allowed by law,’ The Hill reported.

Mr. Schiff promoted his decision as fulfillment of a campaign promise, which comes after the request from families of the victims to publish information related to 9/11 attacks or to refrain from participating in commemorative events.

The president’s executive order came after nearly 1,800 US citizens directly affected by the attacks issued a statement last week, opposing Biden’s participation in any memorial events this year unless he upholds his pledge to unclassify the documents, evidence they believe may show a connection between Saudi Arabian leaders and the events.

On Friday, the group praised Biden´s executive order, and Terry Strada, wife of one of the victims, said it would serve ‘to rectify the immense damage that the 20-year cloak of secrecy has caused.’

Following the attacks, Congress and White House responded with an unprecedented expansion of military, police and intelligence powers aimed at eradicating and stopping terrorists, at home and abroad.
