Martin, K. (n.d.). Justice Department Fails to Address 9/11 Intelligence Failures. Retrieved from

The hearings last week before the 9/11 Commission (formally the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States) highlighted domestic intelligence failures by the FBI and CIA before September 11. The independent, bipartisan commission was created by Congress in late 2002 and is due to release a report this July with an account of the circumstances surrounding the attacks and recommendations to guard against future attacks. The hearings raised two key questions: 1) were legal barriers responsible for the pre-9/11 intelligence failures, and if so, are they still in place; and 2) is there a need for a new domestic intelligence agency? This essay explains why legal barriers were not responsible for the intelligence failures. The Department of Justice?s insistence that legal barriers are to blame ? and in turn that the Patriot Act was the correct response ? is misleading at best and a distraction from the real intelligence failures at worst.
