Overview

On July 22, 2004, a vital document appeared that shed a new and wholly unfavorable light on the policies and methods of the CIA and the FBI in the George W. Bush and pre-Bush administrations. Prompted by the families of the World Trade Center, United Flight 93, and American Airlines Flight 77 victims, the 500-page 9/11 Commission Report detailed the findings of the bipartisan commission appointed to research the events surrounding the September 11, 2001 Al Qaeda terrorist attacks against the United States. In the process, it revealed one of the most colossal failures of intelligence-gathering in modern history. As an accessory to this published work, the A&E program History Now: The 9/11 Commission Report provides a 100-minute documentary overview of the report's findings, highlighting each of its major points in great detail. The video also tells a disturbing story not found in the book: that of the government's failed attempts to suppress the document from public view.
