Former Gov. Tom Kean says U.S. more vulnerable to terrorist attacks since 9/11


The United States is more susceptible to terrorist attacks than any time since the 2001 assault on the World Trade Center, according to the chairman of the 9/11 commission.

Although some disagree with Kean, many involved in national security issues agree al Qaeda has mutated as an international organization over the past few years, diversifying its bases of operations and attack plans.While al Qaeda adapts, the U.S. intelligence community is in disarray, Kean said.
He noted that Obama has not replaced former Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair, who announced his resignation May 20, and "six years after the recommendations of the 9/11 commission were released, we still haven’t gotten any action on reform in Congress.
