Biden Tells Justice Department to Declassify 9/11 Probe Documents


WASHINGTON—President Biden on Friday ordered the review and possible release of previously withheld government documents related to the Sept. 11 attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center that could shed new light on the role of accomplices in the plot that killed nearly 3,000 people.

As the 20th anniversary of the attacks approaches, Mr. Biden ordered the Justice Department to consider declassifying additional materials contained in some of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s case files of its investigation into the attacks that have long been sought as part a lawsuit brought by the families of 9/11 victims. The materials have been held back from disclosure in court on national security grounds.
