9/11 Commissioner: Failure to Act on 9/11 Lessons Cost Lives in Katrina

9/11 Commissioner: Failure to Act on 9/11 Lessons Cost Lives in Katrina.

The Washington Post today quoted former New Jersey Governor Thomas
H. Kean (R), that Katrina has shown that our nation is still unprepared
for terror. “This is not a terrorist incident, but it brings into play all of the same issues and shortcomings,” Kean said. “What
makes you mad is that it's the same things we saw on 9/11. Whoever is
responsible for acting in these places hasn't acted. Are they going to
do it now? What else has to happen for people to act?”

After issuing their report in 2004, the ten commissioners of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States
(“9/11 Commission”) formed a 501(c)(3) organization – the 9-11 Public
Discourse Project – aimed at fulfilling the 9-11 Commission's original
mandate of guarding against future terrorist attacks, while adhering
strictly to the same bipartisan and independent principles that have
guided it over the last twenty months. This organization consists of
the same leadership of the 9-11 Commission, including its
commissioners, who now serve as the Board of Directors of the 9-11
Public Discourse Project. About the 9/11 Public Discourse Project

On September 14, 2005, the Project will issue a Report Card on
Implementation & Press Conference with Former Commissioners in
