August 20, 2004The Honorable John W. CarlinArchivist of the United StatesNational Archives and Records Administration8601 Adelphi RoadCollege Park, MD 20740Dear Mr. Carlin:When the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States(the "Commission") terminates,
by
statute, on August
21,
2004, the records
of
the Commission v/ill be transferred
to
the National Archives and RecordsAdministration (NARA)
for
preservation and public access. This letter setsforth the Commission's continued interest
in
government and public access
to
information created
or
gathered during its investigation and establishes criteriaunder which these records will
be
made available.The Commission has established
a
policy of making available to the public
as
much information as possible, while safeguarding national security, personalprivacy, intelligence, law enforcement, and other sensitive information.
The
Commission's final report
is
highly detailed and discloses
a
significantamount of previously classified material.
In
addition, the Commission hasreleased through
its
website many supplemental documents, including staffstatements, witness statements, transcripts, and press releases. All of therecords and information that the Commission has made available
to
the publicshould continue to
be
made publicly available by NARA. This includes therecords that are accessible on the Commission's website, which NARA willmaintain after August
21,
2004. Because the Commission was established
in
the legislative branch,
its
records have not been subject to the Freedom
of
Information Act (FOIA), and we understand that the FOIA will not apply
to
Commission records even after they are transferred to NAR,A..Commission records not already publicly available should be made availableto the public,
to
the greatest extent possible consistent with the terms
of
thisletter, beginning on January 2, 2009. The Commission encourages NARA
to
conduct
a
systematic review
of
the records that are not currently available
to
the public with the goal of releasing
to
the public as much information as
is
allowable by law and regulation on January 2, 2009,
or
as soon thereafter
as
possible.
In
the course
of
this
review, NARA should refer to the originatingagencies copies of records that remain classified and request a review
for
declassification by January 2, 2009,
or
as soon thereafter as is possible.Records should not
be
disclosed
if
they (a) contain information that continuesto
be
claisitled; (b) disclose private information that the Commission agreed
