Biden orders declassification reviews of documents related to Sept. 11 attacks

WASHINGTON, Sept 3 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday ordered reviews of the potential declassification of documents from the FBI’s investigation into the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

“When I ran for president, I made a commitment to ensuring transparency regarding the declassification of documents on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America,” Biden said in a statement. “As we approach the 20th anniversary of that tragic day, I am honoring that commitment.”

Biden said his order directed the Department of Justice and other agencies to “oversee a declassification review of documents” related to the FBI probe. The order requires Attorney General Merrick Garland to make the declassified documents public over the next six months, he said.
