Joe Biden has a bit of a PR nightmare that just hit his desk.
Roughly 2,000 people impacted by the attacks on 9/11 are telling Joe Biden to stay home.
They have issued a statement asking him not to come to the 20th-anniversary memorial ceremony.
Give Us the Documents
The outrage by families is over the declassification of government documents.
These individuals believe those documents will implicate Saudi Arabia in the attacks and they want them made public.
So, a statement was prepared by a large group of survivors, family members of those killed, and first responders telling Joe to release the documents or stay home.
The statement read, “We cannot in good faith, and with veneration to those lost, sick, and injured, welcome the president to our hallowed grounds until he fulfills his commitment.”
It continued, “Since the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission in 2004 much investigative evidence has been uncovered implicating Saudi government officials in supporting the attacks.
“Through multiple administrations, the Department of Justice and the FBI have actively sought to keep this information secret and prevent the American people from learning the full truth about the 9/11 attacks.”
The group is specifically holding Biden accountable due to a campaign promise to offer more transparency.
The group added, “Twenty years later, there is simply no reason — unmerited claims of ‘national security’ or otherwise — to keep this information secret.
“But if President Biden reneges on his commitment and sides with the Saudi government, we would be compelled to publicly stand in objection to any participation by his administration in any memorial ceremony of 9/11.”
The White House has not yet commented on Biden’s plan to honor his commitment or to attend the ceremony.
