He admitted Congress hasn’t met the commission’s recommendations to protect the country against an attack. “We cannot forget Congress’ own shortcomings.” Lungren said. “The WMD commission gave Congress a failing grade for not reforming its congressional oversight to better address our homeland security needs.”
