truth-out.org: New Congressional Report Cites Shoddy Intelligence and Privacy Concerns in Probe

The bipartisan committee launched a probe in 2009 to determine what kind of impact fusion centers have had on the intelligence community’s efforts to thwart terrorist plots. The resulting 146-page report, which is highly critical of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), was released by Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, the subcommittee’s chairman, and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma, the ranking minority member, who led the investigation…The centers were created in the wake of the 9/11 attacks to serve as regional focal points for “the receipt, analysis, gathering and sharing of threat-related information among federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) partners,” according to the web site for DHS, which is responsible for oversight of the centers. According to the report, DHS officials overstated the fusion centers’ “success stories” and “asserted that some fusion centers existed when they did not.”
