President Bush Signs the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 while Administration and Congressional Officials, as well as 9/11 Commission Chair Tom Kean and Vice Chair Lee Hamilton, look on.  


The Intel Reform bill reorganized the nation's intelligence services under the control of a Director of National Intelligence and expanded the FBI's counterterrorism surveillance role, among other reforms. The bill, structured largely around recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, was signed into law in December, 2004.  


However, legislation is only the first step towards full implementation of these vital reforms. Use these pages to learn more about the status of the Commission's recommendations for reforming America's intelligence capabilities.
