Overview


With Reporting and Analysis by the New York Times

What happened on 9/11 and how? Are we safer now? Have we learned any lessons? These are the questions on the mind of every American since that terrible day.

And on July 26th we may have some answers. On that day, The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9/11 Commission) will issue their complete report of the circumstances surrounding 9/11. THE 9/11 REPORT will cover many topics including:

*Al Qaeda and the organization of the 9/11 attack
*Intelligence collection, analysis, and management (including oversight and resource allocation)
*International counterterrorism policy, including states that harbor or harbored terrorists, or offer or offered terrorists safe havens
*Terrorist financing
*Border security and foreign visitors
*Law enforcement and intelligence collection inside the United States
*Commercial aviation and transportation security, including an investigation into the four hijackings
*The immediate response to the attacks at the national, state, and local levels, with personal interviews of Presidents Clinton and Bush on their roles

In addition, THE 9/11 REPORT will make recommendations as to how to prevent such attacks in the future. Certain to create controversy, this report will be much discussed, politicized, debated and possibly denied. But no matter what it says, THE 9/11 REPORT will be a book that goes down in history.

    Must Read

    The book is great. Once I began to read it, I couldn't put it dow. It goes into great depth, and really gives a firsthand account of 9/11.

    No index

    Great sourcebook on the 9/11 debacle - America's greatest security disaster of all time, and how it happened. Despite billions of taxdollars for defense, our government was unable to protect us from 19 Saudi 'students' with box cutters. Very sobering stuff. The book shows how deeply Iran was involved with Al Quida, too. The book details how easy it was for even known terrorists ('blind shiek Rahman') to enter the U.S. and set up 'shop', even after it was known that he was in prison in Egypt for terrorism. This book is a total indightment of the entire U.S. 'security' establishment, and of political correctness over security. The new problem is that Bush has set up yet another huge, inefficient department - 'Homeland Security', not learning the lessons of 9/11. Bush also has not done enough to secure our borders, especially our southern border. This book is very good, but I was surprised that it has no index (!). I would have given it 5 stars, but lack of an index earns it only 4.
