The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released the first declassified document on the September 11, 2001 attacks. This happened as part of the execution of the decree of US President Joe Biden of September 3, 2021.

The declassified document has been posted on the FBI website. It is dated 2016 and is 16 pages long. However, some fragments of the text are missing. In particular, the name of the person on the basis of whose testimony the document was drawn up is not named. It is only known that he worked at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Los Angeles and sought to obtain American citizenship.

The report mentions the connection of this person with persons who may have provided logistical support to the terrorists who participated in the hijacking of passenger airliners on September 11, 2001. We are talking about two other citizens of Saudi Arabia, one of whom also worked in the consulate, and the other could be an intelligence officer. At the same time, the declassified document contains no information about the connection of these people with the authorities of Saudi Arabia.

It's worth reminding that on September 3 this year, Biden instructed to study government documents related to the terrorist attacks, for their possible declassification. Earlier, the Americans, including the relatives of the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks, asked Biden not to participate in commemorative events until he declassified the documents. They drew attention to the fact that Biden promised to do this as part of the election race. The Americans believe that the leaders of Saudi Arabia may be involved in the attacks. In turn, the authorities of this country also spoke in favor of the complete declassification of documents in the hope that this "will permanently put an end to the baseless accusations against the kingdom".

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists from the Al-Qaeda group (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) hijacked four passenger airliners. They sent two of them to the towers of the World Trade Center in New York, the third to the Pentagon building. The fourth also flew towards the capital, but crashed. The terrorist attack killed 2,977 people, including children. It is known that 15 terrorists were citizens of Saudi Arabia.
