A large group of families directly affected by the Sept. 11 2001 attacks in New York City have sent an open letter to President Joe Biden telling him he is not welcome at the upcoming 20th anniversary of the tragic event.
The letter states that, unless Biden declassifies government documents which they think will prove that Saudi Arabia, the world's second largest oil producer, had a hand in the terrorist attacks, he is persona non grata at the ceremony.
Despite unsubstantiated claims to the contrary, the 9/11 attacks were a massive tragedy in which almost 3,000 people died due to a series of terrorists attacks.
According to Fox News, the statement reads, in part:
"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."
"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 statement goes on to read:
"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."
