Considering that many records on the subject have remained secret, top members on the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations are now reportedly requesting that the FBI and the Department of Justice produce unredacted materials on Saudi Arabia’s “role” in 9/11.
Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) call for unredacted materials in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray in order to better comprehend Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11.
“No one was more affected by these attacks than the families of those whose lives were lost on that day, and who have struggled to obtain accountability ever since. Our inquiry into Saudi Arabia’s attempts to influence U.S. affairs has underscored, yet again, the need for transparency, particularly regarding Saudi Arabia’s connection to the 9/11 attacks,” the senators in question wrote in a letter requesting the declassification.
According to Blumenthal and Johnson, more measures may be taken to guarantee compliance with their request if the federal institutions did not reply to their latest request for unredacted documents.
More American politicians should press Saudi Arabia about the terrorist assaults, according to families and survivors of the 9/11 attacks.
The families and survivors requested that President Joe Biden speak with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about the bombings before his trip to Saudi Arabia in July 2022.
While some of the 9/11 documents that Biden released have been substantially redacted, lawmakers and victims have persisted in demanding additional information regarding the middle eastern country’s involvement in the devastating attacks of September 11th 2001.
