Assume you are a staffer working for a recently elected congressman. The congressman has asked for a presentation on the intelligence failures leading to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Assess how and why intelligence and law enforcement agencies failed to appreciate the threat before the actual attacks. Then, prepare a PowerPoint presentation that highlights your analysis. Recommend any actions you believe the congressman should take to prevent future attacks.

  • Determine whether the reforms recommended have been implemented.
