Tomorrow, FBI director Robert Mueller is scheduled to announce a reorganization of the FBI, which supposedly will allow it to better communicate with the CIA and other intelligence-gathering agencies. It is long overdue, but I question whether the agency that created the problem can solve it.
Fortunately, the Congressional committees with oversight of the FBI are investigating. At this point, I am inclined to agree with the Bush administration that no outside committee should be formed to investigate because of the danger of leaking classified material. But a top-to-bottom reorganization of the FBI is essential. It must be done quickly and competently. Otherwise, we stand a higher risk of repeating September 11. I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
