Hmmm. First, I will tell you that most definitely procedures have changed since 9/11.
I am a flight attendant, and prior to 9/11, how we handled hijackings and sabotage was not to be shared with anyone, including our families. Though the procedure has changed dramatically for us, there are still little things that probably would have been in that report that are still in use. Especially true for pilots, I would assume.
I think the redaction was done as a precaution. Better safe than sorry, you know?
You may well be correct. I have no doubt that there is some sensitive information in there. I'm just left to wonder, though, the way that information which used to be unclassified prior to 9/11 has now become sensitive. It would be nice if someone we could trust to tell the truth (with a high enough security clearance, of course) could tell us the specifics on why stuff is classified, labelled for official use only (or redacted) on these things.
