The 9/11 Investigations : The 9/11 Investigations lifts the curtain on the top-secret investigations into the worst attack in American history. Here in one place is the most salient information from both the 9/11 commission investigation, including twelve commission staff reports and testimony from fourteen key witnesses, and the House-Senate Joint Inquiry Report, distilled into a compelling narrative. The 9/11 Investigations presents the most shocking discoveries to emerge in the course of the investigations. Former Newsweek editor Steven Strasser has combed through the extensive investigative documents and extracted the most revelatory information about 9/11 itself -- the al Qaeda plot, the terrorist attack, the emergency response -- as well as troubling insights into the inner workings of our government. A lead essay by Craig R. Whitney of the New York Times places the 9/11 investigation into a historical context and explores the political power plays that have affected the investigation's progress. Together, these documents and analyses provide an in-depth look at how America has tried to deal with the shocking impact of the 9/11 tragedy.
