Commission now turns to writing its recommendations

Washington-AP -- The commission investigating the September eleventh attacks now turns to formulating suggestions to fix the problems laid bare by the multiple hijackings.

One critical area that needs fixing is communications.

No one was immune that day, not even the president. Panel members described a frustrated President Bush who constantly found his phones cutting in and out.

At one point they said he had to revert to a cellphone to try to talk to his aides in Washington.

That problem, they said, has been fixed.

One unresolved issue is whether the panel will call for creation of a domestic intelligence agency like MI-5 in Britain.

The commission's report is expected by late next month.
