Date: Oct. 8


The New Yorker investigates the failure of the American intelligence, exposed after the September 11th terrorist attacks. The author cites high-ranking intelligence officers who expect that C.I.A. director George Tenet will leave his office. The story reveals that the intelligence community still lacks sound evidence on who initiated and completed the attacks, and how the plan of the terrorists worked over the years. The article also looks at the possibilities for a second terrorist attack and points to the helplessness of the intelligence community to anticipate and prevent it. The investigation depicts the bureaucratic path that American intelligence has been following in the 90s.
