From the opening statement of Joseph I. Lieberman: "This is the first of two hearings that this Committee will hold this week, today and tomorrow, and other hearings will probably follow in a series that is aimed at looking backward and forward to both the terrorist threat to our country, particularly to our homeland, and how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has done in responding to that threat and what it should do to respond to the threat, be ready to meet the evolving threat in the decade ahead. This review is engendered first and most significantly in anticipation of the 10th anniversary of the Homeland Security Act being passed, in November 2002, that created the Department of Homeland Security legislation, which this Committee sponsored and originated."
