Democrat and Republican senators pile on the pressure to declassify 9/11 secrets

Nearly 20 years later, family members of the thousands of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on America still have questions about what happened.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) says it’s time to tell Americans the whole story about the 9/11 attacks.

“The American people deserve the truth,” Blumenthal said.

Blumenthal and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), introduced legislation to help families of 9/11 victims de-classify secret government reports.

“If information is power, then we must give the 9/11 families access to that information,” Menendez said.

The September 11th Transparency Act would force government investigators to make public much of the still-secret findings about the 9/11 attacks.

“Continued concealment of this evidence is inexcusable,” Blumenthal said.

Lawmakers invited 9/11 families here to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. and promised they will expose the truth, even if it embarrasses the Saudi government.
