911 Commission

Trade Center
After the Destruction

On July 22, 2004 the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, otherwise known as the 9/11 Commission issued its final report. The nonpartisan commission which was created after a public demand by family members of the victims of the attack report provided a vivid account of the event of 9/11 as well as the many government failures made it possible. The committee called for a complete overhauling of the US intelligence agency. The report itself became an instant bestseller in bookstores despite the fact that it was available to be read for free, on-line.
