NSA Statement Regarding the Joint Intelligence Committee Report into the Terrorist Attack of September 11, 2001

FORT MEADE, Md.  –  

NSA cooperated with the 9-11 Joint Inquiry Committee throughout its inquiry and shared an estimated 2800 individual documents with approximately 15,000 pages of information,  as well as had over 200 meetings with JIC staff and members of Congress. We worked diligently with the JIC staff to release as much information as possible for the final report,  while protecting only that which is necessary to preserve critical intelligence sources and methods that are used today in the global war on terrorism and other important national security activities.

NSA looks forward to working with Congress to address those issues that the JIC highlighted as areas needing improvement.
