I. Special Briefing
Slade Gorton
Our meeting will start at 8:30 a.m. with a detailed briefing from FBI and CIA
John F. Lehman on two related, compartmented topics. These topics were introduced fully in
Timothy J. Roemer the closed Joint Inquiry hearings held on October 9-10,2002 (available to you
at the Ford Building), a November 2002 FBI written statement formally
James R. Thompson responding to the Joint Inquiry staff statement presented at that hearing
(available to you either at our K Street office or at the Ford Building), and the
Philip D. Zelikow complete Joint Inquiry report that took some of the FBI's suggested
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR corrections (now available at our K Street office!). These materials capture
the flavor of the initial discussion of these topics in the fall of 2002.

The staff has prepared a classified briefing memorandum that summarizes the
issues as we understand them today. Attached to it is a May 2003
introductory narrative of certain aspects of these topics that has been prepared
by the FBI and has already been briefed to selected staff. The staff
memorandum is available for your review at our K Street offices. We urge
you to try to come in early and review at least this memo.

Information about these topics is very closely held within the staff. If you
have any questions, please contact Philip.

Draft minutes from our June 5 meeting are attached at Tab 2.

III. Interview Guidelines

The staff has pressed the position discussed among us on June 5. The
administration's firm position is that an agency representative is entitled to
accompany an official of that agency in any Commission interview. Their

view is that the official's information belongs to the agency and that the agency must be
in a position to assert any statutory or constitutional bars to questioning that may arise.

The Commission must decide how it wishes to proceed. Dan will be prepared to offer
needed background information.

IV. Update on Briefing and Document Requests

As of Friday, June 20, the Commission has formally issued 53 sets of briefing and
document requests to various agencies of the U.S. government. Our index to them is
attached at Tab 3, just to give you a sense of scale. Each of the 53 sets of requests
includes several, sometimes dozens, of individual or categorical requests. Nor are we
done. Some of the most important document requests will be submitted in coming days.
A regularly updated compilation of these requests is available for your perusal at the
Commission offices and will be available at the meeting. Once you review the requests,
and reflect on your own government experience, you can imagine some of what is
happening in the agencies that are receiving them.

On June 20 Commissioners Ben-Veniste and Fielding met with Dan and Steve Dunne to
review the status of the requests. Dan will be able to introduce the discussion of this
subject at our meeting.

V. Briefing by FBI Director Mueller

At 12:30 p.m. we will go to FBI Headquarters. Director Mueller's briefing is scheduled

to begin at 1:00 p.m. and will last at least 90 minutes to two hours. The Director will
brief the Commission on the changes he is trying to introduce at the Bureau. He was
quite willing to come to our offices, but thought he could better display some of the
information technology if he had access to the Bureau's databases.

The Commission's Team 6 (Grewe, Jacobson, Rundlet, Cole) has prepared a concise and
constructive briefing paper suggesting possible topics and questions. It is attached at Tab
4 along with background readings on FBI transformation at Tab 5.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
