Soon the classified document related to the 9/11 attack on the WTO twin tower and the subsequent investigation will be made public as the US President Joe Biden on Friday ordered declassification over the next six months.
Joe Biden signed an executive order directing the Department of Justice and other federal agencies to conduct a declassification review of documents related to the attack undertaken by Osama Bin Laden led Al Qaeda in the year 2001.
In a written statement the US President, he informed the that he has ordered the Attorney General to release the declassified documents.
Biden continued and added, “My heart continues to be with the 9/11 families who are suffering, and my Administration will continue to engage respectfully with members of this community. I welcome their voices and insight as we chart a way forward.”
Joe Biden announced the move a month after more than 1600 people wrote a letter requesting the US president to refrain from going to Ground Zero in New York City to mark the anniversary of the event unless he releases additional documents and information the government has previously blocked.
The 9/11 attacks are considered to be the worst terrorist attack on the American soil as 2 aeroplanes collided into the World Trade Towers claiming the lives of almost 3 thousand people. These were the attacks that prompted the then US President George Bush to invade Afghanistan and enter into war with the Taliban in order to seek revenge from the terrorist organisation Al Qaeda which took the responsibility for the attack.
Recently, just before the 20th anniversary of the attacks, the US military has ended its 20-year long war in Afghanistan and has pulled out all of its troops.
