Last week, US President Joe Biden signed a presidential decree that required the release of documents that were classified until today, based on the FBI‘s investigations into the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Recently, criticism has been rising in the American public on the grounds that Biden did not take any steps towards the victims of 9/11.
In the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 in the USA, 4 passenger planes were hijacked and two of the planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Another hijacked plane targeted the Pentagon in the capital, Washington, while the fourth plane was shot down by F-16s in the Pennsylvania countryside, and nearly 3,000 people died as a result of the attacks.
