JUST LISTENING TO THE 9/11 COMMISSION NEWS CONFERENCE. Although they're discussing some interesting and perhaps pertinent technical changes (e.g. better coordinated radio communications and radio equipment), it seems the main points are that we need better intelligence gathering, better intelligence sharing between agencies, and a single cabinet-level department in charge of national security intelligence.

Uh ... didn't they "solve" these problems with the USA-Patriot Act and the Department of Homeland Security a couple of years ago???

I feel as if somebody hit the "back" button on my Big Brother brand (TM) propaganda player.
