CIA Pre-9-11 Intelligence Report Summary Released

We'll presumably have to wait for the full report, but the summary is pretty critical of George Tenet, particularly his habit of dipping into the counterterrorism budget:

The report is also critical of the failure of the CIA to place on the watch list 9-11 hijackers Nawaf Al-Hazmi and Khalid Almidar after they participated in a terrorism meeting in Malaysia, and the failure to pass this information on to the FBI.

There does not seem to be anything in the report regarding the supposed 15 warnings that the CIA received from countries as diverse as Morocco, Israel and Greece, so the LIHOPers take it on the chin today after their MIHOP buddies took it somewhere else last night.
