2. "President Obama Enraged at Failure of Intelligence
Community" On President Obama's press conference on
Tuesday, during which he expressed strong criticism of
the U.S. intelligence community's apparent failure to
understand and integrate information related the
aborted bombing attempt of a Delta Airlines airplane,
the conservative Sankei stated: (1/7): "Given that
various investigative reports on the 9/11 terrorist
attack pointed out poor coordination among U.S.
intelligence organizations, the fact that their
intelligence collection and analysis capabilities have
been found to be problematic again could deal a fatal
blow to the Obama administration ahead of the mid-term
election in autumn."

3. "Shortcomings Identified in U.S.'s Anti-Terror
Network" The top-circulation, moderate Yomiuri
wrote(1/7): "As one view holds that a turf war among
U.S. intelligence agencies is the source of poor
coordination within the intelligence community,
President Obama may be pressed to conduct a
comprehensive review of counterterrorism measures."
