Report on the Status of 9/11 Commission Recommendations

9/11 Public Discourse Project

"On July 22, 2004, the 9/11 Commission released 41 recommendations to make our country safer and more secure. These recommendations were unanimous and bipartisan. They flowed directly from the findings of our investigation of the September 11 attacks.
