9/11 Panel Gives Gov't Poor Marks on Reform - Yahoo! News

9/11 Panel Gives Gov't Poor Marks on Reform - Yahoo! News: "More than four years after the Sept. 11 attacks, U.S. intelligence agencies still are failing to share information while Congress battles over security funding, a panel that investigated the terrorist hijackings will conclude in a new report.

In interviews Friday, members of the former Sept. 11 commission said the government should receive a dismal grade for its lack of urgency in enacting strong security measures to prevent terror attacks.

The 10-member, bipartisan commission disbanded after issuing 41 recommendations to bolster the nation's security in July 2004. The members have reconstituted themselves, using private funds, as the 9/11 Public Discourse Project and will release a new report Monday assessing the extent their directives have been followed.

Overall, the government has performed 'not very well,' said former commission chairman Thomas Kean, former Republican governor of New Jersey."
