The article focuses on the findings of a bipartisan U.S. House and Senate joint inquiry into the causes of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. The inquiry came to the conclusion that the U.S. government lost repeated opportunities to detect, if not disrupt, the hijackers in 2000 and 2001. A central problem before the attacks was that the U.S. government did not have a well-defined strategy for fighting terrorism.
