NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In recognition of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, FamilySecurityMatters.org and 9/11 Families for a Secure America Foundation today released their shocking findings of the progress accomplished on the 9/11 Commission's recommendations. Sadly, because several of the recommendations received F grades and no grade exceeded a B, the overall grade is D+.
As family victims and friends of those murdered on 9/11 by Muslim terrorists, the two organizations graded what progress they know has or has not been accomplished on the 9/11 Commission recommendations. Their full Report Card, found here: http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.10316/pub_detail.asp and here: http://www.911fsafoundation.org/ addressing 26 of the 41 recommendations, is the result.
In releasing the Report Card, Peter Gadiel, President of 9/11 Families for a Secure America, said, "It saddens me deeply that, ten years after our son was murdered by Islamic terrorists, our country hasn't been able to enact policies that would keep Americans safe from acts of war such as this. Our country is now almost unrecognizable from the industrious country that built in 2 to 3 years the infrastructure necessary to win WWII. Now we can't even produce in 10 years an immigration policy that will keep terrorists out of our homeland."
Carol Taber, President of FamilySecurityMatters.org, echoed Mr. Gadiel's sentiments. She said, "It was a shock to learn that we haven't even created a radio spectrum for first responders, something that most Americans naturally would assume has been accomplished. With five of the 26 recommendations we reviewed receiving an F grade and several others receiving a D, it is clear that America is still not safe."
FamilySecurityMatters.org and 9/11 Families for a Secure America are 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations whose missions are to help keep Americans informed and educated about all issues related to national and family security and sovereignty.
