President Biden gives hope to the families of 9/11 victims and hopes that they will find answers.
On Friday, President Obama signed an executive order requesting that all 9/11-related investigation documents be fully declassified.
Terry Strada, Terry’s husband Tom who was killed at the World Trade Center, said that it was a relief to see President Obama releasing more evidence about Saudi Arabia. “We have been fighting against the FBI and intelligence community for too many years, but this seems like a real turning point.”
As reported by the Herald, the 9/11 families—consisting of thousands of people who lost loved ones or suffered the toxic effects of the collapse of the Twin Towers in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack—hope that the Department of Justice and the FBI will resolve Seal any links they know with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Congress members are pushing for the September 11 Transparency Act, which requires full declassification documents related to 9/11 investigation.
The executive order partly stated that “ensure that the U.S. government maximizes transparency is critical, relying on classification only when tailored and necessary.”
The order required the Ministry of Justice, and other administrative agencies, to initiate declassification reviews and requested the release of declassified documents within six months.
Bruce Eagleson, Brett’s father and one of the World Trade Center victims, stated to the Herald that this was “a good first step.” But he said, “We will watch and wait.”
