This was an event of the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) and the UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations at the University of California Washington Center.
Amy Zegart talked about her book Spying Blind: The CIA, the FBI, and the Origins of 9/11, published by Princeton University Press. In her book she argues that the failure to stop the September 11 attack had more to do with bureaucratic and systemic impediments within the intelligence community and less to do with the actions of individuals within that community or in government. After her presentation, with slides, she was joined in discussion by journalist Scott Shane and Mark Lowenthal, former assistant director of Intelligence for Analysis and Production at the Central Intelligence Agency. They responded to questions from members of the audience.
