                               RESOLUTION


 
  Urging the release of information regarding the September 11, 2001, 
               terrorist attacks upon the United States.

Whereas tens of thousands of pages of documents relating to the September 11, 
        2001, terrorist attacks upon the United States remain classified by the 
        Federal Government;
Whereas the Federal Government may properly classify and control access to 
        information in order to protect sources and methods of collecting 
        critical information in defense of the country and the people of the 
        United States;
Whereas the contents of these documents are necessary for a full public 
        understanding of the events and circumstances surrounding the September 
        11, 2001, terrorist attacks;
Whereas the decision to maintain the classified status of many of these 
        documents prevents the people of the United States from having access to 
        information about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, including 
        the involvement of certain foreign governments in the attacks; and
Whereas the people of the United States and the families of the victims of the 
        September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks deserve full and public disclosure 
        of the events surrounding the attacks: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That it is the sense of the Senate that--
            (1) documents related to the events of September 11, 2001, 
        should be declassified to the greatest extent possible; and
            (2) the survivors, the families of the victims, and the 
        people of the United States deserve answers about the events 
        and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, terrorist 
        attacks upon the United States.
                                 <all>
