The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the 9-11 Commission) released a second interim report, the final being due in late May 2004, regarding the progress made to date and answered some questions previously posed to them. The questions addressed were in regards to access to documents needed, what has been done for families of the victims, and what is being planned. The Commission reports that document requests from the Executive Branch have been acknowledged much faster and they now hold more than two-million pages of documents and still seek more sensitive documents. Other agencies, the FBI, CIA, DHS, and DOJ, have been responsive to requests as have regional and local level agencies. Interviews of witnesses to the attack have been conducted as well as witnesses on policy and fact during public hearings. In the future, the Commission plans on conducting more public hearings on policy issues, investigate the possible need to reorganize the structure and leadership of the intelligence community, and continue to evaluate the documents received from the various agencies.
