Homeland Confusion in DC

On 18, Feb 2014 | No Comments | In News, Uncategorized | By Rachael Benjamin

Homeland Confusion premiered on Capitol Hill last week for former and current Congressional and homeland security officials.

Produced for the Annenberg Public Policy Center, the film examines a key unfulfilled recommendation of the 9/11 Commission: streamlining Congressional oversight of homeland security. Homeland Confusion exposes how Congressional inaction has left the US more vulnerable to terrorist threats and fragmented authority hinders the department’s core mission – keeping Americans safe.
