September 11 Tragedy:
News and Information Sources

Legal Research Guides

Updated Dec. 7, 2004.

Hundreds of documents, news stories, reports, and websites deal with the terrorist attacks and their aftermath. The following links provide only a fraction of the available sources; the focus is on government and legal materials. See also the list of Law Review Articles on Terrorism, http://lib.law.washington.edu/ref/terrorart.html and the Website of the Week for April 14, 2003: Armed Force in Iraq. Contact Cheryl Nyberg at cnyberg@u.washington.edu to suggest additional sources.

As the response to the attacks developed into the war on Iraq, the number of websites and documents has swollen to an incredible number. This website is no longer being regularly updated. Please refer to several of the Portals listed below for more current information and links.

The Commission (also known as the 9-11 Commission) was an independent, bipartisan commission created in late 2002. Its purpose was to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks. The Commission is also mandated to provide recommendations designed to guard against future attacks. Having issued its final report, the Commission ceased on Aug. 21, 2004. Commissioners then established a nongovernmental organization, the 9/11 Public Discourse Project,
