FBI Launches Website to Commemorate 10 Years After 9/11 Attacks

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation unveiled this week a new website that demonstrates the ways in which the department has transformed in the years following Sept. 11, 2001.

The site, titled “Ten Years After: The FBI Since 9/11,” contains fact sheets, timelines, stories, reference materials, and case highlights that help illustrate the FBI’s evolution into a more threat-based, intelligence-driven organization.

“Over the past decade, the FBI has made a series of changes to enhance its ability to protect the nation from a vast array of ever-evolving threats—from hateful terrorists plotting in the shadows to cyber villains using emerging technologies to invade our homes and offices…from white-collar criminals scheming in corporate suites to burgeoning gangs sowing violence and crime in our communities,” read the new site.

According to the FBI, the site also contains an overview of the bureau’s role in the large-scale, multi-agency 9/11 investigation. For example, one section features video accounts of more than 20 agents talking about their work in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. in the moments, days, and weeks following the terror attacks.

The agency stated that more materials will be added to the new page in the upcoming days before 9/11.
