Nearly 1,800 family members of 9/11 victims, first responders, and survivors have demanded that President Biden release September 11 documents or steer clear from attending any memorials this year.
In October 2020, while President Biden was still a candidate, he sent a letter to the group that pledged transparency about the September 11 terror attack. “I will direct my Attorney General to personally examine the merits of all cases where the invocation of privilege is recommended, and to err on the side of disclosure in cases where, as here, the events in question occurred two decades or longer ago.”

Members of the 9/11 community drafted a letter to request to President Biden to fulfill his campaign promise:
1) Authorize the release of all documents and information to the 9/11 community that our government has accrued in its investigation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (and which former FBI agents have sworn establishes the Kingdom’s role in 9/11) to allow us to rightfully obtain justice against the Kingdom.
2) Implement a policy toward the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that makes clear it must acknowledge its role in terrorist attacks against our citizens and residents, which in the last 20 years include not just 9/11 but the horrific murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and the murder of U.S. service members in Pensacola, Florida; and, accordingly, immediately cease the Kingdom’s support for acts of terrorism.
This information may implicate the Saudi government in planning the terror attack that occurred on 9/11. The investigation, conducted by the FBI, was completed in 2016.
Unless Biden declassifies evidence from 9/11, the group has implored Biden to stay away from all memorials this year. This year is the 20th anniversary of the terror attack. The statement was first reported by NBC News. The news outlet reported that the last three administrations cited national security concerns in their reasoning to decline declassifying documentation.
