WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

In the six years since the 9/11 attacks, there have been several books about how the failures of our intelligence agencies helped allow Osama Bin Ladin and al-Queda to plan the deadly incident.

In her new book,Spying Blind:The CIA, the FBI, and the Origins of 9/11, Amy Zegart, an associate professor of Public Policy at UCLA, shows how and why the intellgence system itself left the U.S. vulnerable.

Zegart writes that six years later, the intelligence community’s most serious deficiencies remain.

WMNF asked Zegart today, how could that be?
