Families of September 11 offers its deep gratitude to the 9/11 Commission for its outstanding work on its final report. The Commission gained unprecedented access to classified documents and interviewed officials throughout the government, including President Bush and former President Clinton. It conducted its work in a transparent manner by holding public hearings and issuing interim staff reports. It produced a thorough, thoughtful, unanimous report with comprehensive recommendations for improving America's security.

We call on the President, Congress, and the executive branch agencies to review and implement the Commission's recommendations quickly. If these various parties choose not to act upon these recommendations, such a decision must be based on better recommendations which they are willing to put forth publicly and implement.

Nearly three years have passed since 9/11, and the Commission has conducted its study over a period of 20 months. The time for action is upon us. With the nation in continued peril of terrorist attack, we cannot afford to wait.

For a copy of the 9/11 Commission's final report, or to view the Commission's 41 recommendations as summarized by the Families of September 11, please visit www.familiesofseptember11.org. In addition, please refer to How to Reach Your Elected Officials to find contact information for the President and your Senators and Representatives.
