The Sept. 11 commission releases the final report on its 20-month-long investigation into the 2001 attacks. The report cites a "failure of imagination" across the government, from the executive branch to Congress. It also calls on Congress to step up its oversight of counter-terrorism and intelligence efforts. Hear NPR's Larry Abramson and NPR's Renee Montagne.
