Index to the 9-11 Commission’s report

If you’re one of the millions in possession of the 9-11 Commission’s 585-page report, you may have been disconcerted to find that it lacks an index.

The thoughtful people at n + 1 magazine feel your pain and have taken it upon themselves to index the report for you. Part one is available now; the rest will be added as the week goes along.

Here’s an excerpt from the Ashcroft section:

after 9/11

— unreachable on morning of 9/11, 9

— vows to take every conceivable action, 327-328

— calls detaining aliens “risk minimization,” 327

— joins George W. Bush’s “war council,” 330-332

— charged with spearheading homeland defense, 333
