ODNI News Release No. 1-05

"After reading the CIA Inspector General Report on the September 11th attacks, after talking with the Director of CIA, and after having my own inspector general thoroughly review the Report, I fully support the decision of Director Goss not to proceed with accountability boards to judge the performance of those named in the report. I look forward to working with Director Goss to continue to address the systemic issues raised by this and other investigations."
