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.

Won't let me buy
I have enough $ that is left from a gift card but is says I don't have enough
Should be free
Why isn't this free? The physical book costs eight bucks to cover the cost of printing. You can download the pdf from the 9/11 commission's website.
On a completely unrelated note, the book provides no good explanation of why so many first responders died. There was very little they could do, and very little they did, so why did 500 of them have to go become dead heroes? The report should have paid a bit more attention to what they accomplished that cost 500 lives.
