As Congress plans intelligence reform, the most difficult changes could come within Congress itself; the 9-11 Commission report calls its oversight dysfunctional. In our series on the panel's recommendations, we discuss congressional reform.

SEN. HARRY REID, Democrat from Nevada. Co-chair of Senate 9-11 Working Group.
