TENET SAID THE CIA DID HAVE A PLAN TO DESTROY AL QAEDA SANCTUARIES IN AFGHANISTAN, BUT SYSTEMIC WEAKNESSES PREVAILED. George Tenet/CIA Director: Warning is not good enough without the structure to put it into action. THE COMMISSION FOUND THAT, RATHER THAN LOOKING AT THE BIG PICTURE, THE CIA MISSED WARNING SIGNS BECAUSE OF ITS PIECEMEAL APPROACH TO INTELLIGENCE-GATHERING. TENET SAYS, BECAUSE OF AN EROSION OF RESOURCES AND MANPOWER, THEY COULDNT KEEP UP WITH GLOBAL CHANGES BUT HE MADE NO EXCUSES. Tenet: No matter how hard we worked or how desperately we tried, it was not enough. The victims and families of 9-11 deserve better. THE FBI GOT GRILLED AGAIN ON INTELLIGENCE LAPSES. FORMER OFFICIALS RECEIVED SCATHING REVIEWS TUESDAY FOR DELAYS AND MISSTEPS, BUT THE COMMISSION FOUND THAT, SINCE 9-11, MUCH PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE TO IMPROVE THE BUREAU'S OUTDATED STRUCTURE. CURRENT DIRECTOR ROBERT MUELLER SPOKE OF THE CHANGES.
