2,409. 9/11/2001

According to The Los Angeles Times on January 28, 2003, “the FBI’s [computer database] system was so antiquated that, immediately after 9/11 [2001], frustrated agents in Tampa [Florida] were unable even to e-mail photos of the nineteen hijackers to the Bureau’s regional offices. They had to resort to overnight mail. The 1980s-era technology at the Bureau lacked even the capacity to search and link words like ‘flight’ and ‘schools.’ ”
