FBI releases newly declassified 9.11 document following Biden executive order Updated: 2021-09-13 09:39:08 KST


A declassified FBI document related to logistical support provided to two of the Saudi hijackers who took part in the 9.11 terrorist attacks DOES NOT offer evidence that the Saudi government is complicit in the plot.
That's what U.S. media agencies said after the 16-page document was released on the 20th anniversary of the attacks following an order by Joe Biden to declassify and release the information.
Six months ago, President Biden ordered the Department of Justice and other related agencies to conduct a declassification review and reveal the document.
He was under pressure from the families of 9.11 victims who have long waited for the report while they pursue a lawsuit in New York, alleging that the Saudi government supported the hijackers.
The Saudi government has always denied any involvement in the attacks.
However, allegations of Saudi's complicity have long been the subject of dispute in the U.S.
15 of the 19 terrorists who hijacked four planes on September 11, 2001 were Saudi nationals.
Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan reaffirmed Sunday that Saudi Arabia welcomes the decision by the U.S. to release this document adding that "it would completely show that there was no Saudi involvement" in the attacks.
