The struggle against terrorism “has entered a new and dangerous phase,” members of the 9/11 Commission said on the 10-year anniversary of the original 9/11 Commission Report. The group’s new report, developed in partnership with the Bipartisan Policy Center and the Annenberg Public Policy Center, identified emerging threats and continuing vulnerabilities, including the need to streamline Congressional oversight of Homeland Security.
Ten years ago, the 9/11 Commission urged Congress to overhaul its supervision of the Department of Homeland Security in the name of national security. At the time, Homeland Security answered to 88 Congressional committees and subcommittees. The issue was spotlighted in an ad in the New York Times.
Speaking at the 2014 Aspen Ideas Festival, a panel of experts on national security including former 9/11 Commission chairman Thomas H. Kean agreed that the nation is not as safe as it could or should be. One of the problems, they said, was that Congressional oversight of the Department of Homeland Security was in the hands of too many overlapping committees and subcommittees, so critical issues were not being dealt with.
