Democrats have repeatedly said that Republicans have failed to make our country as safe as it should be. However, you don't just have to take our word for it - for a true evaluation of how Republicans have failed on homeland security, look no further than the bipartisan 9/11 Commission's report card.  For example, the Commission gave the Bush Administration and Congress a "D" on critical infrastructure risks and vulnerabilities assessment, an "F" on improving airline passenger pre-screening, and a "D" on checked bag and cargo screening.

In response to these Republican failures, Democrats have put forth a Real Security set of proposals that will ensure the full implementation of the 9/11 Commission's recommendations. Democrats are committed to keeping America safe and secure, and will lead America in a new direction to make us safer and stronger.
