Congressional investigators: intelligence failures similar to 9/11

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congressional investigators say some of the same intelligence failures that led to the 9/11 attacks also allowed a man to slip on board a U.S.-bound jetliner with a bomb on Christmas.

The Obama administration has said that the nearly catastrophic bombing was not a failure to collect and share intelligence like before the Sept. 11 attacks. Rather, it said it was a failure to understand that intelligence.

The Senate Intelligence Committee disagrees. A 16-page summary of its investigation says some of the same systemic problems remain in place nearly a decade after the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks.
