On May 29, 2002, FBI Director Robert “Mueller announced a restructuring of the FBI’s approach to fighting terrorism. He pledged to reassign 400 of the Bureau’s 11,500 field agents from narcotics investigations to counterterrorism. Mueller also promised that four hundred new analysts would be added at the Bureau’s fifty-six field offices and at headquarters, including twenty-five from the CIA. The number of Joint Terrorism Task Forces, he said, would be expanded from thirty-five prior to 9/11 to sixty-six by 2003.”
