The proposed index came after a color-coded system to measure terror threats was dropped in two thousand-eleventh amid widespread confusion and ridicule.

Agency staff proposed the system of reds, yellows and greens in two thousand-fourteenth. The Institute for Defense Analyses says in a 53-page report obtained by The Associated Press that Homeland Security should avert repeating mistakes.
