Vote Expected on Yearlong Probe Into 9/11 Intelligence Shortcomings

A joint congressional committee could vote next week on its findings in the wake of 9/11. The committee looked into the performance of intelligence services before the attacks. It's also drafted proposals on how to prevent another attack from happening.

A spokesman for Senate Intelligence Chairman Bob Graham says the panel's four leaders, including Graham, are assembling the recommendations for presentation to their colleagues Tuesday. They hope to have the report completed and accepted by Wednesday. The spokesman refused to discuss specifics of the draft.

The New York Times reports the draft does not blame any individuals for failures that preceded the September 11th, 2001 attacks. It does recommend a director of national intelligence, to be added to the Cabinet, and the agency for domestic intelligence, which would be based on the British office known as MI-Five.
