(Washington) US President Joe Biden on Friday signed an administrative order for the classification of the 9/11 inquiry documents within the next six months, which is an important item for some of the families of the victims.
Referring to the “Pitlage” campaign, Joe Biden “signed an executive order to oversee the classification review of documents related to the 9/11 investigations by the judiciary and all relevant agencies,” the White House statement said.
The Minister of Justice is required to publish classified documents “within the next six months”.
Suspicion of Saudi Arabia
Families of 9/11 victims have launched a legal battle against Saudi Arabia and other states.
During these operations, successive U.S. governments used state secrecy to prevent the release of certain documents.
As the United States prepares to commemorate the twin towers of the World Trade Center and its twenty-year attacks on the Pentagon, the issue is sensitive, including a ceremony attended by Joe Biden in New York.
In early August, the families of the victims, survivors of the attack and members of the rescue team released a letter saying he would not receive a “welcome” at the ceremony if the Democratic leader “did not keep his promise”.
The letter called for the release of all documents revealing Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the attacks, according to the signatories.
