20407Dear Mr. Marcus:
I
writeinresponseto theJuly2,2003 requestby theNational CommissiononTerroristAttacks Upon the United States for production of copies of certain documents by the NationalTransportation Safety Board
("NTSB").
As you know, the NTSB is an independentestablishmentof the United States Government, responsible for, among other things,
investigating
aircraft
accidents.
See
49
U.S.C.
§
1131(a)(l)(A).
The law enforcementinvestigation of the events of September
11,
2001 was under the jurisdiction of the FederalBureau
of
Investigation
("FBI"),
but,
at
FBI's request
and
under
its
direction,
the
NTSBprovided technical assistance.TheNTSB helped document
factual
information regardingtheaircraft involvedin theevents of September 11
th
, and delivered this information and numerous reports and othertechnical products to the FBI. The material collected and produced by NTSB personnel for theFBI is, and was at all times, under the FBI's control.The Commission's electronic request specifically sought,
"[a]ll
records relating to theNTSB's review of radar data
from
the United States Air Force and Federal AviationAdministration concerning
(1) the
hijacked
aircraft
on
September
11,
2001,
and (2) the
United
States
Government'sairdefense responseto thehijacked aircraft."Therequest also specifically"includes, but is not limited to, both the raw radar files and the
NTSB's
analysis of the combined
radarinformation."

As you can see
from
theattached list, NTSB onlyhasmaterial responsiveto thefirst partofyour request.Iam advised that the NTSB did not conduct any investigation or collect any
records (other
than those we areproviding in response to the first part of the request) that would
pertain
to the United States Government's air
defense
response
to the
hijacked
aircraft.
 
conversations with Commission Deputy General Counsel Steven Dunn and
staff
counsel Dana
Hyde,
as well as with Department of Justice liaison counsel Brian Hook, about your request.Today,
the FBI
authorized NTSB
to
provide
to the
Commission copies
of all
material thatNTSB delivered
to the
FBI.
For
your convenience,
I
have attached
a
list
of
that material.
I am
advised that this material is included within the
nondisclosure
agreement for Moussaoui-related
material
reached betweentheCommissionand theExecutive
Branch.
Withtheexceptionof a
copy
of the cockpit voice recorder recording
("CVR")
and an early copy of a working
draft
of
the
CVR transcript
from
United Airlines Flight 93 CVR, I am herewith providing theCommission with copies
of all
such material.

is
both responsive
to
and extends beyond the boundaries of your written request, will prove
helpful
to you.If you have any questions, or need assistance with anything,

CVR
recordings require
different
treatment,
in
part because
of the
special restrictions against public disclosure
imposed
byCongress.
See
49U.S.C.§
1114(c);
see
also
49U.S.C.§1154(a) (setting
forth
detailed provisionsdesigned to minimize dissemination of non-public CVR information). I am advised that the FBI, however, which is
in
possession of the original CVR tape and the
final
draft
of the CVR transcript
from
Flight 93, will respond directly
to
anyCommission request pertainingto theCVR.Youwill note that someof theproductswe aredeliveringto you
incorporate
information
from
the FBI transcript of the Flight 93 CVR recording.
