A CIA inquiry has accused the agency’s ex-chief George Tenet and his aides of failing to prepare for al-Qaeda threats before the 9/11 attacks on the US.
“The agency and its officers did not discharge their responsibilities in a satisfactory manner,” the CIA inspector general wrote in a scathing report.
The document was completed in June 2005 and kept classified until now. Its release was ordered by Congress.
UPDATE: On a related front, dysfunction in high places.
