Overview

Producer/director Linda Ellman offers a comprehensive examination of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in this focused documentary that opens with a 1997 interview with Osama bin Laden, and goes on to detail precisely how the harrowing events of that fateful day unfolded. From the manner in which the hijackers passed through airport security to the experiences of the unfortunate souls trapped in the World Trade Center during the attacks and the testimony of President Bush's former counter-terrorism advisor Richard Clarke, Ellman's documentary focuses not only on the tragedy of the 9/11 attacks, but the heroism and inspiring bravery of those who gave their all to save the lives of others during one of America's darkest hours as well. Kevin Costner and Hillary Swank narrate a film designed to preserve a defining moment in American history.

    Disturbing

    I found some of the commentary by the families self-congratulatory, if I can be brutally honest. They didn't achieve anything, unfortunately. The disturbing thing of this documentary is that what the families did uncover was that there was a concerted effort to cover-up their mistakes from both administrations, from several different agencies and bureaucracies. The Bush Administration the most evilly but the Clinton Administration deserve their share.
