Brief Executive Summary
The Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence conducted an investigation into the intelligence capabilities of the U.S. government prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The committee evaluated the performances of the three key intelligence agencies prior to the attacks: the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, and Federal Bureau of Investigation. The committee found that the intelligence agencies lacked the necessary operations management and resource allocation to adequately predict the occurrence of a terrorist attack.
