Briefing with Department Officials on Consolidated Attorney General Guidelines

September 13, 2008

The Department is harmonizing several sets of Attorney General guidelines to produce a consolidated set of guidelines governing domestic FBI operations that is transparent and as consistent as possible between criminal and national security investigations and foreign intelligence collection. The Department views this as the next step in responding to post 9/11 requests that the FBI become better at collecting intelligence, and using that intelligence to prevent attacks. These proposed changes reflect precisely what was asked of the FBI after September 11, 2001. The terrorists who attacked us on that day did so from within the United States; and it is for that reason that the bipartisan 9/11 Commission, the Silberman-Robb Commission, and the Joint Congressional Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities each concluded that the FBI had to become more nimble and effective at collecting and analyzing intelligence.
