Sharing terrorism-related information between state, local and Federal officials is crucial to protecting the U.S. from another terrorist attack.  Achieving this objective was the motivation for Congress and the White House to invest hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars over the last nine years in support of dozens of state and local fusion centers across the U.S.   This is the report of a congressional investigation which found that Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS)-assigned detailees to the fusion centers forwarded äóìintelligenceäó of uneven quality -- oftentimes shoddy, rarely timely, sometimes endangering citizensäó» civil liberties and Privacy Act protections, occasionally taken from already-published public sources, and more often than not unrelated to terrorism. This investigation has found that DHSäó»s work with those state and local fusion centers has not produced useful intelligence to support Federal counterterrorism efforts. It also found that DHS officialsäó» public claims about fusion centers were not always accurate.  For instance, DHS officials asserted that some fusion centers existed when they did not. At times, DHS officials overstated fusion centersäó» äóìsuccess stories.äó At other times, DHS officials failed to disclose or acknowledge non-public evaluations highlighting a host of problems at fusion centers and in DHSäó»s own operations. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
