To help us remember and put in context the 9/11 attacks and what followed, former acting director of CIA Michael Morell offered his memories and insights to the Catholic University community. Mr. Morell served at that time as President George W. Bush’s CIA briefer and was with the President in Florida on that morning. He later served in several crucial leadership roles in CIA as the Agency sought and eventually found Osama Bin Ladin. He was CIA’s deputy director during the raid on Bin Ladin’s compound by US special forces.

In an interview setting with Nicholas Dujmovic, director of the University’s Intelligence Studies Program, Michael Morell related the challenges, frustrations, and accomplishments of the men and women of US intelligence as they worked to make sure another 9/11 would not occur.
