The 9/11 Investigations lifts the curtain on the top-secret investigations into the worst terrorist attacks in American history. Here, distilled into a compelling, readable narrative, is the most salient information from both the Joint House-Senate Inquiry and the 9/11 Commission's classified investigations. Former Newsweek editor Steven Strasser has combed through the extensive documentation surrounding the inquiries and extracted the most crucial and revelatory details about 9/11-the al Qaeda plot, the terrorist attack, the emergency response-as well as some troubling insights into the inner workings of our government. Primary documents in the book include: the House-Senate Committee report of July 2003; compelling staff reports of the 9/11 commission; and extracts from crucial public testimony by George Tenet, Richard Clark, Condoleeza Rice, and fourteen others. A lead essay by New York Times editor Craig R. Whitney analyzes the investigations process itself and the unsettling political power plays that have often hampered its progress.
Together, the documents and analysis in The 9/11 Investigations offer readers an unparalleled, in-depth look at the attacks of 9/11 and the real impact that they have had on our nation.show more
