“On July 19 [2001], on a periodic conference call with the FBI’s field offices, Acting Director Thomas Pickard mentioned that, in light of the increased threat reporting, the Bureau needed to have ‘evidence response teams ready’ in case of an attack. ‘He did not ask field offices to try to determine whether any plots were being considered within the United States.’ ”
