TRAC data suggests shortcomings in FBI's dealing with international terrorism

Data from the Justice Department indicates that federal prosecutors appear to have big doubts about the FBI's criminal enforcement activities when it comes to fighting international terrorism. According to a TRAC report, federal prosecutors so far in FY 2006 have rejected 87% of the FBI's referrals on international terrorism.

The report also shows that despite across-the-board staffing increases in the last few years, FBI investigations of all kinds have consistently resulted in fewer federal prosecutions. And detailed graphs and tables reveal how FBI staffing and enforcement priorities have been constantly changing since 1986.
