This U.S. Department of Homeland Security fact sheet discusses the 9/11 anniversary and progress and reevaluation of priorities made since then. The following is taken from the report: "Since 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has made significant progress in protecting the nation from dangerous people and goods, protecting the nation's critical infrastructure on which our lives and economy depend, strengthening emergency response and unifying department operations. Seven years without an attack on U.S. soil are a testament to this department's 216,000 employees -- and the nation's first responders and law enforcement officers -- who every day put service before self. Since its creation in the aftermath of the tragic events of 9/11, the department has achieved much to protect and secure the United States."
