Fair use notice - quotes from the 9/11 reading room

The 9/11 reading room archives articles, documents, etc. pertaining to 9/11. Here are a couple of quotes from the site:
This archive consists of news stories and other documents (images, government files) related to the most dire unanswered questions about the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001. It is by no means complete: We invite readers to send us articles (or references to them) that will fill out this database.
(from the main page)

Because of its importance to the events of September 11, 2001, this article has been archived by the 911 Reading Room

(quoted from below articles)

I agree with their interpretation of fair use in this case for the reasons which they outline in the above quote and so I will also be documenting and archiving articles, images and documents without specific authorization by the copyright owner. As I will attempt to show, a great deal of information about 9/11 is no longer readily available, has changed or in some cases does not seem to be available at all. Due to this, I have attempted to document the existence of some things which I consider to be relevant to 9/11 due to the very real possibility that they may no longer be found in their current state at some point in the future.
