The Inspectors General (IG) of the Intelligence Community (IC), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) today issued their report examining the U.S. government’s handling and sharing of information prior to the Boston Marathon bombings. The full report is classified. An unclassified summary of the report also has been released. Based on all the information gathered during our coordinated review, we believe the FBI, CIA, DHS, and NCTC generally shared information, and followed procedures appropriately.

In July 2012, the McClatchy Company published articles claiming, among other things, that the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) violated Federal law by not reporting admissions of potential crimes that individuals made during NRO-administered polygraph examinations. The Director NRO, and subsequently Senator Charles E. Grassley, requested an IG review of NRO’s crimes reporting process.  NRO IG recused themselves due to their role in the crimes reporting process and the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (IC IG) conducted the review.
