9/11 Commission Formally Disbands

The Sept. 11 commission closed down Friday, but its members plan to continue testifying before Congress and traveling the country to try to get the government to improve homeland security. After the attacks, Congress created the commission to investigate what went wrong and recommend fixes. By law, it went out of business one month after releasing its final report. Commissioners now want to use the pressure of an election year to publicly lobby for more than 40 changes they recommended. The main one was that a national director should be appointed to oversee the various intelligence agencies. “We’ve spent a lot of time developing them and we don’t want to just see them filed on the shelf,” said former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., the commission’s vice chairman. “It’s important to the safety of the American people that these recommendations be enacted.” OODA Analyst
