Joe and Jill Biden are slated to visit all three sites of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in observance of 20 years since the incidents. According to the White House, the Bidens will head to New York City, Shanksville, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon next Saturday to honor the victims of the attacks which took thousands of lives.
Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff will be separately traveling to Shanksville and plan to later meet with the Bidens at the Pentagon.
The White House did not disclose if Biden would be delivering remarks at the sites. This comes as Biden recently ordered the release of all declassified documents on 9/11.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement, “as we near the 20th anniversary of that terrible day, the families of those who were killed, and all Americans, have a right to know the full story, and the passage of time has mitigated concerns over sources and methods. The House Intelligence Committee will closely oversee this process, to ensure that all agencies adhere to the president’s guidance to apply the maximum degree of transparency allowed by law when conducting the review.”
