TIME MAGAZINE COVER STORY: Is the FBI Up to the Job 10 Years After 9/11? – Inside Bob Mueller’s 10-year campaign to fix the FBI
This story originally appeared in the May 9, 2011, issue of TIME. On May 12, the White House announced that President Obama will seek a two-year extension of Mueller’s 10-year term as FBI director, which is set to expire in September. FBI Director Bob Mueller glanced at the black chronograph he wears Marine-style, the face inside his wrist.
It was 7:38 a.m.
Mueller inherited 56 field offices, each a distant fiefdom run by a special agent in charge. Old-school SACs (pronounced S-A-C, never sack) measured progress by arrests, kept their files to themselves and lived by the motto “Real agents don’t type.” They were accountable to no one but the director, and even those chains were loose. Then came the searing failure of Sept. 11, 2001, seven days after Mueller’s swearing-in. It was the worst hour in the FBI’s 93-year history. “You talk about a learning curve,” recalls Art Cummings, who worked alongside him. “He’s barely been on the job, hasn’t met many of his senior executives” and suddenly is faced with “the ‘oh, crap’ moments.”
Field offices in Phoenix and Minneapolis had important clues to the plot long before the attacks. Neither knew what the other knew, and no one put the pieces together. Critics began to say the FBI was irreparably broken, ill equipped to collect intelligence and disinclined to share it anyway.
Mueller learned that Bush had reauthorized Stellar Wind over formal Justice Department objections. That night, he shut down the FBI’s part in it and stayed up until 1:30 a.m. composing a letter: “Should the President order the continuation of the FBI’s participation in the program, and in the absence of further legal advice from the AG, I would be constrained to resign as Director of the FBI.”
Mueller knew the stakes. Acting Attorney General James Comey, together with nearly the whole top cadre at Justice, was also preparing to leave — a meltdown that would have dwarfed Richard Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre. “I remember it all very well,” says Valerie Caproni, then and now the FBI general counsel. “From my perspective, there was a very real likelihood of a collapse of government.” Early on Friday, March 12, Mueller stood with Comey in a foyer outside the Oval Office. “We knew this was our last morning,” Comey recalls.
“We both were just staring out, looking at the Rose Garden, thinking, This is the last time I’ll ever see this.” Mueller, Comey says, “wasn’t rattled, but I could tell he was just very sad.” In the private dining room abutting the Oval Office, Mueller told Bush one-on-one that he would not carry out the President’s order. He offered his resignation. Bush pulled back from the brink, submitting to the Justice Department’s legal ruling.
Mueller will not speak of the episode, but
