Federal authorities said today that they planned to use stricter standards for identifying and locking up terrorist suspects in light of concerns raised in a recent report that hundreds of illegal immigrants were mistreated after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Law enforcement officials plan to make at least 12 structural changes that were recommended in a report issued last week by the Justice Department inspector general, according to interviews with officials at the agencies affected by the report. Nine other recommendations are being actively considered, they said.
They had an investigation into previous occurences and problems, they published it, and now they intend to make changes. Isn’t this how it is supposed to work? This does not excuse them for the past mistakes, but this is how government is supposed to work. I am assuming TalkLeft will keep us up-to-date on whether they follow through.
