9/11 Commission Leaders Push for More Action on Security – The Washington Post

The leaders of the 9/11 Commission on Friday met with U.S. intelligence and homeland security chiefs and urged the Obama administration not to lose focus on counterterrorism and domestic security threats as the nation’s political attention moves elsewhere.

Lee H. Hamilton, who helped lead the panel that investigated the 2001 terrorist attacks, said there has been “insufficient urgency” in fulfilling the group’s recommendations. “More progress could be made more quickly,” the former Democratic congressman from Indiana said.
