In 2004, the 9/11Commission called on the President and Congress to exercise "maximum effort" against WMD proliferation and terrorism. In 2005, the 9/11 Public Discourse Project assessed the progress and efforts of the U.S. government in carrying out the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission. The Project found the government had made "insufficient progress" and assigned it a 'D' grade overall. Seven years after 9/11, the Partnership for a Secure America issued a similar report card in 2008 giving the U.S. government a 'C' grade.
