9/11: More Damning Indictment of FBI & CIA Than Expected

HeadlineJul 25, 2003

After the Bush administration delayed its publication for months, Congress yesterday released its nearly 900-page investigation on the Sept. 11 attacks.

The report’s findings provide an even more damning indictment of the intelligence community than many had predicted. Sen. Bob Graham, former head of the Senate Intelligence committee, says the report proves the 9/11 attacks could have been stopped.

The scathing critique of the CIA and the FBI finds the agencies did not talk to each other at critical junctures. The FBI missed evidence of its own informant who was actually living with two of the hijackers in San Diego.

The government also deleted 28 pages of the report believed to detail Saudi funding of members of Al Qaeda in the Untied States prior to Sept. 11. [ See Full Segment]
