New FOIA Request: Report from Internal FBI Investigation

Filed under: Complete 911 Timeline,Document Collection — kevinfenton @ 2:02 am

I have filed a new FOIA request, this time for a report from an internal FBI investigation into the pre-9/11 intelligence failures. The existence of the report, which is different to the Justice Department inspector general’s report, was first revealed in the 2008 Jeff Stein article “FBI Prevents Agents from Telling ‘Truth’ About 9/11 on PBS.” It was from this article that we learned what Doug Miller and Mark Rossini really knew about the blocking of Miller’s draft cable from Alec Station to the FBI about Pentagon hijacker Khalid Almihdhar’s US visa. So, hopefully, it would be pretty useful if it ever gets released in unredacted form.

A list of successful FOIA requests can be found here and unsuccessful ones here.
