About 1,800 Americans, including relatives of the victims, emergency services personnel, and survivors of the September 11 terrorist attack, called on American President Joe Biden not to attend commemorative events in New York and at the Pentagon until he declassifies government documents about the circumstances of the tragedy. This is reported by NBC with reference to the statement.
According to the publication, the authors of the appeal believe that government documents contain evidence of the involvement of the leaders of Saudi Arabia in the tragedy.
They also claim that at the time when Biden was still a presidential candidate, he promised to disclose as much information about the tragedy as possible, but did not do so.
вЂњWe cannot receive the president in our sacred places until he fulfills his obligation,вЂќ the appeal says.
On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists from the Al-Qaeda group seized four civilian passenger liners. They sent two of them to the towers of the World Trade Center in New York. The third airliner rammed the Pentagon building. The fourth hijacked plane was also heading towards Washington but crashed near the city of Shanksville in Pennsylvania. As a result of the terrorist attacks, in addition to the terrorists themselves, 2,977 men, women, and children were killed, and several thousand more were injured.
