The Sept. 11 panel hears testimony from current and former FBI directors, as the agency's actions prior to the 2001 attacks come under growing criticism. Former FBI Director Louis Freeh has said he lacked proper funding for anti-terror efforts. Previous witnesses have suggested FBI policies prevented inter-agency sharing of key information.
