Chairman King on the hearing: "The 10th anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks of 9/11 provides an ideal opportunity for the Committee to take a look back at the past 10 years and a look ahead to the future. Through the testimony of 9/11 Commission Co-chair Lee Hamilton and former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, the Committee will get a better picture of the progress that we have made as a nation in securing our homeland since the horrific attacks of 9/11. The hearing will also provide an opportunity for the Committee to inquire about the numerous gaps that still exist. Lee Hamilton, along with fellow 9/11 Commission Co-chair Tom Kean, has just published an insightful 9/11 Report Card, in which they highlight a number of those shortcomings, including the federal government's failure to reallocate the D Block portion of the radio spectrum to public safety and the "dysfunctional' congressional oversight of the government's homeland security functions. This Report Card and its findings will certainly be a major point of interest for the Committee. I look forward to what I know will be a fruitful discussion with these two esteemed witnesses."
