Why Declassify

Since 2001, the 9/11 community has fought for the release of information regarding who was behind the 9/11 attacks, and for 18 years the American government has refused to divulge this information. In the wake of 9/11, the Bush administration sent thousands of Americans to Iraq in an attempt to combat supposed 9/11-related terrorist cells there.

Since then, not only has Iraq’s involvement in 9/11 been debunked, but the U.S. continues to support Saudi Arabia, the country from which 14 of the 19 hijackers originated. In 2016, legislation was passed in Congress (JASTA), that allows the 9/11 community to sue the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its role in 9/11. Even with JASTA in place, the FBI has continually blocked the 9/11 community’s legal team from accessing key FBI investigation documents related to Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11. The 9/11 community and the American people deserve to know the truth that’s hidden in these documents.

Some facts and figures:

  • Over 80,000 people enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Program
  • Billions of dollars in damage.
  • The September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington initiated our long war on terror which has taken us to battlefields all over the Middle East, resulting in the deaths of over a million people including armed forces, civilians and contractors, at a cost of over 6 trillion dollars.
