Biden Executive Order Given

( On Friday, President Joe Biden signed an executive order that required the Justice Department and a host of other federal government agencies to work towards declassifying documents related to the FBI’s investigations in the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001.

It comes as President Joe Biden faces a difficult 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. He is expected to appear at a memorial in New York later this month, despite opposition from the families of victims of the attack and widespread criticism about his handling of the withdrawal of U.S. soldiers from Afghanistan – the war created by the Bush administration in the wake of the attacks.

The order doesn’t mean that declassification will immediately occur, but does give Biden at least some kind of bragging rights in the run-up to this tragic anniversary. It basically just means Biden can claim that he did something.

In a statement on Friday, Biden said that we must not forget the “enduring pain of the families and loves ones of the 2,977 innocent people” who were killed in the attacks.

Maybe he should respect those families by not turning up to memorials where people don’t want him there. This is the president, after all, who oversaw a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan that left soldiers scrambling to evacuate American citizens in dangerous conditions after the Taliban took hold of the country and seized billions of dollars of American military equipment in the process.

Just think how many lives could have been saved if Biden had evacuated American citizens and allies before withdrawing the military…

Under the order, the Attorney General will disclose classified documents over a period of six months.
