President Biden issued an executive order on Friday directing the Department of Justice to conduct a “declassification review” of documents concerning the FBI investigation of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The order requires Attorney General Merrick Garland to publicize all relevant documents over the next six months.

“We must never forget the enduring pain of the families and loved ones of the 2,977 innocent people who were killed during the worst terrorist attack on America in our history,” Biden said in a statement. “My heart continues to be with the 9/11 families who are suffering, and my Administration will continue to engage respectfully with members of this community. I welcome their voices and insight as we chart a way forward.”

The order comes after family members of victims asked the president not to attend any memorial events for the September 11 attacks this year unless he declassified more documents, which they say would implicate Saudi officials. The letter from families, released on August 6, has since gained over 2,000 signatures.
