Biden signs executive order calling for declassification review of 9/11 documents

President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Friday directing the Justice Department and other government agencies to review documents related to the FBI’s 9/11 investigation for possible clearance – an election pledge just days before the 20th anniversary of the Redeem terrorist attacks.

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

“We must never forget the ongoing pain of the families and loved ones of the 2,977 innocent people killed in the worst terrorist attack on America in our history,” Biden said in a statement Friday. “For them it wasn’t just a national and international tragedy, it was personal devastation.”
