Summary Box: FBI missed several opportunities to discover evidence leading to Sept. 11 plot

By Associated Press, 6/10/2005 02:34

BUNGLED PROBE: A newly released report says the FBI missed at least five chances to uncover important information about the Sept. 11 terrorists several months before they attacked with hijacked jetliners.

URGENCY LACKING: Although agents determined that two suspected terrorists were in the United States, the report says, the agency pursued the case with little sense of urgency or priority.

PLACING BLAME: The report points to problems with the FBI and CIA sharing information and problems within the FBI's counterterrorism program.
