This Week: 9/11: For the Record
This Week
September 10, 2004

This week on NOW:

"9/11: For the Record" addresses a critical question that continues to haunt America's national psyche: how could the most powerful nation on earth have been so utterly unprepared to protect its homeland? On the eve of the third anniversary of 9/11, NOW analyzes the commission report and connects the dots of what happened that day and the warning signs leading up to it. Bill Moyers once again teams up with a long-time colleague, the award-winning producer Sherry Jones, to take a look at what the 9/11 Commission found. Jones, whose credits include, "Watergate Plus 30: Shadow of History," highlights the agonizing close calls, missteps, and outright failures of two administrations and America's intelligence and security agencies in the months and years leading up to 9/11.
