By presidential decree, Joe Biden instructed the Department of Justice and other government organizations, among others, to see which documents could be released about the September 11, 2001 attacks.
If disclosure begins, the documents will be released within the next six months.
According to Biden, the release of these documents is part of his commitment to provide transparency about the attacks. He promises that through the publications he will take into account the families of the victims of the bloody attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, among other things.
According to CNN, the signing of the decree comes after 1,600 victims and relatives of the attacks sent an open letter to Biden. They called on the president not to go to Ground Zero in New York to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the attacks, as long as he did not disclose documents and information that the government had previously blocked. Shortly after the letter was published, the Justice Department said it would review undisclosed documents that could be shared with the public.
