Papers Reveal Bitter CIA Dispute After 9/11 Attacks

Documents released on friday show Top CIA officials fought bitterly after the 9 11 attacks over whether U.S. intelligence agencies could have done more to stop the deadliest terrorist strikes in American history.
The once-secret documents include a more complete version of a 2005 report by the spy agency's inspector general. That report said the CIA did not have a comprehensive strategy or the resources to fight al Qaeda before hijacked planes hit New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
A redacted summary of that report was first made public in 2007.
But the documents released by the CIA on Friday also reflect the arguments of former CIA Director George Tenet and his lieutenants that U.S. intelligence was intently focused on al Qaeda and leader Osama bin Laden.
