Commission Reports

After the terror attack, the United States Congress appointed The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, better known as the “9/11 Commission”. The Commission was tasked to establish the events as they happened.

Twelve public hearings were held during the preparation of the main report, from March 31st 2003 to June 17th 2004.

The Commission produced two preliminary reports, on July 8th 2003 and September 23rd 2003. The final report was made public on July 22nd 2004.

In addition to the main report, two reports were also produced: One established the activities of the terrorists leading up to September 11th, while the second revealed how the attack was financed.

The Commission was dissolved on August 21st 2004. Afterwards, a large part of the Commission’s drafts have also been made public.

The Commission made a point out of ensuring that the report was written so that most people would understand it. The report was thus also issued in graphic form, in a briefer version, to help those citizens who did not read or understand English well. The report in graphic form can be viewed here: .
