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.
