DoJ Inspector General Report on Moussaoui

The Department of Justice Inspector General released a newly declassified version of its 2004 audit of the FBI’s handling of intelligence information related to the September 11 attacks, including a newly disclosed chapter (large pdf) on the case of Zacarias Moussaoui.

In a previously released version of the report, the entire chapter 4 on Moussaoui had been withheld by court order because of Moussaoui’s ongoing trial. With the conclusion of that trial last month, the suppressed chapter was approved for release.

See “A Review of the FBI’s Handling of Intelligence Information Related to the September 11 Attacks,” as released June 16, 2006.
