FINALIST FOR THE PULITZER PRIZE For most living Americans, September 11, 2001, is the darkest date in the nationa€™s history. But what exactly happened on 9/11? Could it have been prevented? And what remains unresolved? Here is the first panoramic, authoritative account of that tragic daya€”from the first brutal actions of the hijackers to our governmenta€™s flawed response; from the untruths told afterward by U.S. officials to the a€œelephant in the rooma€ of the 9/11 Commissiona€™s reporta€”the clues that point to foreign involvement.
