President Biden will be in Alaska on Sept. 11, thereby becoming the first sitting president to skip out on one of the traditional 9/11 memorial services that are held each year in New York City, Virginia or Pennsylvania.

According to the White House website, Biden will travel to Vietnam on Sept. 10 to discuss ways to promote technology, education exchanges, job training, climate change initiatives and greater peace in the region.

On Sept. 11, the day Americans solemnly recall and pray for those lost 22 years ago, Biden will participate in a smaller ceremony with members of the military at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, while Vice President Kamala Harris attends a large memorial in New York, and Jill Biden lays a wreath at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial.

In 2021, 9/11 Justice members sent a letter to Biden that was signed by 1,800 survivors of 9/11 victims. It asked Biden to skip the traditional ceremonies unless he ordered the release of documents that might shed light on the Saudi government’s ties to 9/11 terrorists.

The White House announcement offered no explanation as to why the president chose to forgo participating in the most prominent ceremonies that mark the worst terrorist attack on American soil and the loss of nearly 3,000 lives.

Earlier this month, however, more than 2,000 family members of those who died in the attacks signed a letter to the president, protesting news of a possible plea deal between the U.S. and five suspected 9/11 masterminds who are being detained at Guantanamo Bay.

According to an Aug. 22 report from Politico, news of the possible plea agreement has frustrated the victim’s families, who are also angry that the U.S. government has continued to withhold information which they believe shows the Saudi government’s links to the attackers.

Victims’ families are most concerned that a plea deal will give infamous purported masterminds, like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a way to avoid ever having to go to trial.

“We cannot have the greatest terrorist attack in the history of this country fade away with plea deals for the last remaining prisoners in Guantanamo,” Politico quoted Brett Eagleson, who leads the 9/11 Justice advocacy group. “America deserves a trial. We deserve to know what they have to say, and we deserve the truth.”

In 2021, 9/11 Justice members sent a letter to Biden that was signed by 1,800 survivors of 9/11 victims. The letter asked Biden to skip the traditional ceremonies unless he ordered the release of documents that might shed light on the Saudi government’s ties to 9/11 terrorists.

In 2021, Biden did order the FBI, CIA and Justice Department to release formerly classified documents, but only about 900 pages have been made public so far.

“After more than two decades of our search for truth and accountability, we find ourselves again, inexplicably, thwarted by our own government,” the families wrote earlier this month in regard to their ongoing mission to obtain the information Biden told his government agencies to declassify in 2021.

      Take one look at our congressional delegation of “representatives “ and you’ll see why. AK is going blue and the rat commies want to keep up the momentum.

  • Neil says:

    Alaska is tge only hiding place left Biden can go without harassment from the news. He is such a waist for a president. I didn’t ever think someone could be worst than The Peanut man Jimmy Carter but then here comes the democrats and Groper Joe Biden. Notice how it’s ok for him to grope women in public on stage in front of camera’s then a lame oh I didn’t mean itis good enough. Look at what they’re doing to Trump. So it’s ok if your a Democrat but not if your a republican or Trump. Sad Sad world were living in. I think we should boycott Biden coming to Alaska. We don’t deserve him nor do our women need groping from him.

    Its a refueling stop. He will remain in his crib in the back and he will be on a military base.

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      He won’t even know what state or country he’s in.

      • Colorado Conservative says:

        That was my first thought when I saw the headline. PedoJoe will just be following Obozo’s orders. Not sure what is up with all the O’Biden people showing up in AK lately. Most likely they see their chance to turn the state blue with ranked choice voting. We are leaving the third world Democrat run craphole of CO to move to AK. God willing the left will not take over this state and ruin it like they have done to CO.

    Wake up, the enemy is within, The true terrorists were bush and his globalist cronies,, not the patsy Arabs that conveniently left all their drivers license at the bottom of the demolished WTC towers.

  • Morrigan says:

    Remind again, where President Biden was on August 26, the date 13 U.S. service members were killed ijust two years ago during Mr. Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal?
    Of course it matters. The idea is to remember all Americans killed by Muslim terrorists, no?
    Hardened cynics could be forgiven for believing Mr. Biden’s handlers planned his Anchorage appearance specifically to avoid predictable, awkward, high-visibility problems which might detract from the dignity of Presidential appearances at Shanksville, New York, and the Pentagon.

  • George says:

    It’s past time to ban all mosques from America. Islam is not a religion, it’s a violent political movement intent on enslaving the whole planet.

  • Ron Bernier says:

    I find it Ironic that we remember all those that were hurt and killed by terrorist in airplanes on 9/11, and we are being victimized by another terrorist in an airplane on 9/11/23. I think he deserves an Anchorage School District welcome. I think he should refuel in Canada and avoid Alaskan airspace.
    Sincerely Ron Bernier district 7

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I agree on the airplane statement and that O’biden should just keep flying over Alaska and make his stop in Canada. His buddy Justin Trudough would be happy to see him surely!

    SGT Report is talking with Harley Schlanger in this video. They are discussing how the globalists are losing control and how President Trump is a big threat to their plans to dominate the world. We have to discuss these things – get this out in the air with everyone talking about what the globalists are trying to do. Everyone – including Ms. Palin – needs to expose everything that the globalists are doing.
