Redford's Sundance Institute supports the festival
The actor was speaking at the start of the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, where the opening movie recalled protests over the Vietnam war in 1968.
Redford said he, like many others, had shown a "spirit of unity" with the US government after 11 September 2001.
"We put all our concerns on hold to let the leaders lead," he said. "I think we're owed a big, massive apology."
The actor, whose Sundance Institute for independent film runs the annual festival, usually steers clear of political messages in his opening speech.

We must learn from our mistakes that have already been made so that we won't continue to make them over and over again. This is madness and insanity and ridiculous.
Please support our troops coming home now.
Promote Peace each and every day please.

The letters were sent to more than 5,100 Army officers listed as recently having left the military.
But this figure included about 75 officers killed in action and about 200 wounded in action.
More than 3,000 members of the US military have died in Iraq since the war began.
Casualties have also been suffered in Afghanistan since the US invasion.
"Army personnel officials are contacting those officers' families now to personally apologise for erroneously sending the letters," the army said in a statement.
It said the database normally used for such correspondence with former officers had been "thoroughly reviewed" to remove the names of dead and wounded soldiers.
"But an earlier list was used inadvertently for the December mailings," it added.

DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU
President Bush added a "signing statement" in recently passed postal reform bill that may give him new powers to pry into your mail - without a warrant.
WASHINGTON - President Bush has quietly claimed sweeping new powers to open Americans' mail without a judge's warrant, the Daily News has learned.
The President asserted his new authority when he signed a postal reform bill into law on Dec. 20. Bush then issued a "signing statement" that declared his right to open people's mail under emergency conditions.
That claim is contrary to existing law and contradicted the bill he had just signed, say experts who have reviewed it.
Bush's move came during the winter congressional recess and a year after his secret domestic electronic eavesdropping program was first revealed. It caught Capitol Hill by surprise.
"Despite the President's statement that he may be able to circumvent a basic privacy protection, the new postal law continues to prohibit the government from snooping into people's mail without a warrant," said Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), the incoming House Government Reform Committee chairman, who co-sponsored the bill.
