(CAPITOL HILL) - Congressional Democrats says the Nine-Eleven commission's report is proof the administration has dropped the ball on homeland security.
The panel gave the government an "F" on homeland security spending for cities most at risk, as well as for improving radio communication and airline passenger prescreening. The administration was awarded an "A-minus" for efforts to curb terrorist financing.
Chairman Thomas Kean says he and others are frustrated by what he calls a "lack of urgency." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi calls it "an indictment of the continued failure" to meet the nation's security needs.
Congressman Bart Stupak says the administration spends more money in Iraq in two days than it has since Nine-Eleven on making sure first responders can talk to each other.
He warns that means "chaos will reign" after any future attack.
