War and Piece: Could it get worse?

War and Piece:

Could the prosecution's Moussaoui case get worse?
The FBI agent who arrested Zacarias Moussaoui weeks before Sept. 11 told a federal jury Monday that his own superiors were guilty of "criminal negligence and obstruction" for blocking his attempts to learn whether the terrorist was part of a larger cell about to hijack planes in the United States.[...]
Samit said he once overheard Jones on the phone with headquarters, telling FBI superiors that Minneapolis was trying to keep Zacarias Moussaoui "from flying an airplane into the World Trade Center."
Hard to pin this incompetance on Bush. Idiocy runs pretty deep in the goverment, and it's not as if Bush's idiocy leadership had time to permeate so deeply into the FBI in 2001. But Kee-rist-all-mighty, this is breathtaking.
