Nearly three thousand people died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. In Lower Manhattan, on a field in Pennsylvania, and along the banks of the Potomoc, the United States suffered the single largest loss of life from an enemy attack on its soil. In November 2002 the United States Congress and President George W. Bush established by law the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission. This independent, bipartisan panel was directed to examine the facts and circumstances surrounding the September 11 attacks, identify lessons learned, and provide recommendations to safeguard against future acts of terrorism. This volume is the authorized edition of the Commission's final report.

It has, improbably, been called uncommonly lucid, even riveting by The New York Times, and it was a finalist for the 2004 National Book Awards nonfiction honor. It is a literally chilling read, especially in its minute-by-minute description of the events of the morning of 9/11 inside the Twin Towers.It is The 9/11 Commission Report, which was, before its publication, perhaps one of the most anticipated government reports of all time, and has been since an unlikely bestseller. The official statement by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States-which was instituted in late 2002 and chaired by former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean-it details what went wrong on that day (such as intelligence failures), what went right (the heroic response of emergency services and self-organizing civilians), and how to avert similar future attacks.Highlighting evidence from the day, from airport surveillance footage of the terrorists to phone calls from the doomed flights, and offering details that have otherwise gone unheard, this is an astonishing firsthand document of contemporary history. While controversial in parts-it has been criticized for failing to include testimony from key individuals, and it completely omits any mention of the mysterious collapse of WTC 7-it is nevertheless an essential record of one of the most transformational events of modern times.

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one. Contents: A Factual Overview of the September 11 Border Story The September 11 Travel Operation – a Chronology Terrorist Entry and Embedding Tactics, 1993-2001 The Redbook Terrorist Travel Tactics by Plot Al Qaeda’s Organizational Structure for Travel and Travel Tactics Immigration and Border Security Evolve, 1993 to 2001 The Intelligence Community The State Department The Immigration and Naturalization Service Planning and Executing Entry for the 9/11 Plot The State Department The Immigration and Naturalization Service Finding a Fair Verdict Crisis Management and Response Post-September 11 The Intelligence Community The Department of State The Department of Justice Response at the Borders, 9/11-9/20, 2001 The Department of Homeland Security

The 9/11 Commission Report is widely declared to be the definitive account of the most devastating attack ever to take place on American soil, but in truth the most vital questions about 9/11 have not been asked, and an ever-growing number of facts casts clouds of suspicion over the actions and motivations of many key government officials and agencies. The 5 Unanswered Questions cuts through the official accounts and political "spin" to the questions that lie at the heart of this American tragedy.

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 left Americans wondering how such a breach of security could have occurred. Relatives and friends of the victims pushed for the creation of a National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States to investigate the government's preparedness for and response to the attacks and to provide recommendations for preventing future disasters. As Senior Advisor to the 9/11 Commission, Ernest R. May provides students with a firsthand account of the commission's methods and actions. His introduction, which describes the drafting process and the collaboration of the commissioners despite the bitter political divisions surrounding them, allows students to view the report as an historical document. The report itself has been carefully abridged for the classroom while preserving the essence of the complete version. A cast of characters, a glossary of political acronyms, a chronology, a selected bibliography, and questions for consideration make this edition ideal for students.

"Fast 500.000 verkaufte Exemplare in drei Tagen - die Enthüllung von Bushs ehemaligem Terrorberater Richard Clarke schlägt alle Rekorde" (SPIEGEL ONLINE) Binnen weniger Tage wurde "Against All Enemies" zu einem hochbrisanten Politikum, über das die Medien weltweit berichteten. Was macht die Schlagkraft dieses Buches aus? "Die Bush-Administration hat die Gelegenheit verpasst, Al Qaida zu zerschlagen", schreibt Richard A. Clarke. Sie habe alle Warnungen vor Al Qaida ignoriert, in einem unnötigen Krieg gegen Irak wertvolle Zeit verloren und dem Terrorismus Gelegenheit gegeben, sich neu zu organisieren. Wie kein anderer ist Clarke berechtigt, ein solches Urteil zu fällen. Zwei Jahrzehnte seines Lebens hat er dem Kampf gegen den Terrorismus gewidmet. Er war unter Clinton und Bush Cheforganisator der amerikanischen Anti-Terror-Politik und leitete in den entscheidenden Stunden nach den Anschlägenvom 11. September den Krisenstab im Weißen Haus. Sein Bericht, der sich auf die Entwicklungen vom ersten Golfkrieg bis zu "Bushs Vietnam" im Irak konzentriert, liest sich wie ein autobiografischer Thriller.

Vehementwiderspricht Andreas von Bülow der offiziellen Version der Anschläge vom 11. September: Ohne geheimdienstliche Unterstützung war eine solche Operation nicht durchzuführen. Seine brisanten Thesen sind ein Angriff auf die Verlogenheit der CIA. Nur Stunden nach dem Terroranschlag vom 11. September hatte die US-Regierung Fotos und Steckbriefe aller Attentäter, wusste sie Bescheid über alle Drahtzieher und Hintermänner. Und blitzartig war auch Präsident Bushs Strategie gegen die Mächte des Bösen fertig. Zufall? Andreas von Bülow, früherer Bundesminister, zweifelt die offizielle Version vehement an.

The 9/11 Commission Report left numerous questions unanswered about the September 11 hijackings and how they were carried out. For example, the 9/11 Commission could not explain why two of the hijackers took a connecting flight from Portland, Maine to Boston on September 11 instead of boarding in Boston with their fellow hijackers. Nor could the Commission explain why the hijackers took several trips to Las Vegas, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Florida, and Virginia Beach, Virginia in the months immediately prior to the attacks. The 9/11 Commission Report is littered with similar unexplained mysteries and investigative dead ends. This new book examines the questions the 9/11 Commission could not----or would not----answer. This is not a "9/11 Truther" conspiracy book, but instead a sober, fact-based assessment of how little we really know about how the 9/11 attacks were planned and carried out. . . . . and how unprepared we are to prevent future terrorist attacks in the United States.

Der Tag, die Angst, die Folgen

Was geschah wirklich am 11. September 2001? Seit zehn Jahren recherchieren staatliche Ermittler und Historiker. Dennoch haben Verschwörungstheorien über «9/11» nach wie vor Hochkonjunktur. Gestützt auf neues Archivmaterial und die neuesten Erkenntnisse über Täter, Hintermänner und Drahtzieher schildert Bernd Greiner die Ereignisse und untersucht ihre Folgen. Dieses Buch entkräftet zahlreiche Legenden: dass eine entführte Maschine abgeschossen worden sei, dass die Katastrophe mit einer besseren Kooperation von Polizei und Geheimdiensten hätte verhindert werden können oder dass eine rechtzeitige Verhaftung Osama Bin Ladens am Desinteresse der Regierung Clinton scheiterte. Keine dieser Vermutungen ist haltbar. Gezeigt werden auch die unerwünschten Ergebnisse des «Krieges gegen den Terror» – wie der Einsatz des Militärs Al-Qaida neuen Zulauf bescherte und eine fragile Organisation auf Dauer eher stärkte als schwächte. Vor allem aber geht es um die Hinterlassenschaften des «Krieges gegen den Terror» in den USA und Europa. Immer deutlicher treten die Beschädigungen der demokratischen Verfassung und des politischen Wertessystems hervor – jener Grundlagen also, die es gegen die terroristische Herausforderung eigentlich zu verteidigen und zu stärken gilt. So entsteht die Geschichte eines nervösen Jahrzehnts, in dem die Angst ins öffentliche Leben zurückkehrte.
