New Report: Implementing 9/11 Commission Recommendations

Filed under: Strategy — by Philip J. Palin on July 21, 2011

At the following link please find a DHS “progress report” on implementing-9-11-commission-report-progress-2011 (3.6 MB PDF).

The report gives particular attention to:

  • Expanding information sharing,
  • Developing and implementing risk-based transportation security strategies,
  • Strengthening airline passenger pre-screening and targeting terrorist travel,
  • Enhancing screening for explosives,
  • Protecting cyber networks and critical physical infrastructure,
  • Bolstering the security of US borders and identification documents, and
  • Ensuring robust privacy and civil rights and civil liberties safeguards.

I have not had time to give the report a fair reading.  Will be interested in what you think.

Congress will recess shortly after the debt ceiling crisis ends. Some amazing things will then occur in the Executive Branch and WH. President will sign off on Reorganization proposal that has been on his desk since June 9th involving trade and tech transfer issues.

At least a dozen new or revised Executive Orders will appear before Thankgiving.

And with Gates gone, three more to follow by Labor Day. Secretaries that is!
