On the government’s response since September 11, 2001:
“Over the past ten years, our government’s response to the challenge of transnational terrorism has been equally dramatic. Legal, policy, and cultural barriers between agencies created serious impediments to information sharing before the 9/11 attacks. The 9/11 Commission made a number of specific recommendations to improve information sharing across our government, and many of these have been accepted and implemented, in whole or in part.”
