The Advisory Panel will continue to be relentless in pursuing appropriate

solutions to these difficult issues, even if our recommendations are controversial and

cross some “turf' boundaries. We will always—always—consider as an overarching

concern the impact of any legal, policy, or process changes on our civil rights and

liberties. Our Constitution, our laws, our judicial system, our culture, our history all

combine to make our way of life unique in all the world.

Thank you again for this opportunity.

The Advisory Panel to Assess Domestic Response Capabilities for Terrorism Involving Weapons of Mass Destruction was established by Section 1405 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1999, Public Law 105–261 (105th Congress, 2nd Session) (October 17, 1998), as amended by Section 1514 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2002, Public Law 107-107 (107th Congress, 1st Session) (December 28, 2001). That Act directed that a federally funded research and development center provide research, analytical, and other support to the Advisory Panel during the course of its activities and deliberations. RAND has been providing that support, under contract from the Department of Defense, since the Advisory Panel's inception.

The Advisory Panel's Annual Reports to the President and the Congress are documents of the Advisory Panel, not RAND publications. They are prepared and edited by RAND professional staff and are submitted for review and comment within the U.S. Government Interagency process.
