9/11 Families United is a coalition of families and survivors of the worst-ever terrorist attacks on American soil. We have come together anew to urge our fellow Americans to demand answers to longstanding, unresolved questions about those terrorist attacks, and to insist that our government release the evidence it is withholding — once and for all.
We believe that more than two decades is too long to wait for full transparency …
… about the murders of our loved ones,
… about the nations, especially Saudi Arabia, that helped the hijackers,
… about the nations that provided financial backing for al Qaeda, and
… about America’s “allies” who continue to send terrorists into the world.
For more than 20 years, the U.S. government has kept thousands of pages of evidence hidden that will help us answer to these questions. Recent disclosures have only increased the urgency of full transparency, but many of these documents are still being kept from us all.
We make this demand on behalf of our community, but also for all Americans who care about accountability and truth. We make this demand with a shared sense of purpose — that we will not rest until our government finally does the right thing.
Without full transparency and candor, we can’t heal — not as family members and survivors, and not as citizens. Today we are left with doubt, distrust, and anger at the politicians and bureaucrats who claim they care about the truth and the pain we have suffered, but then work every day to keep us in the dark. This must stop. We all deserve answers, and we all can learn from an honest, public exposure of the facts.
Only then can Americans have confidence that we are doing everything we can to ensure justice, and to make sure that a day like 9/11 never happens again.
