IG says Justice misreported some terrorism stats
Thursday - 9/6/2012, 12:17pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - A review of terrorism statistics from the Justice Department shows officials have given Congress slightly incorrect information.
That is the conclusion of an inspector general report released Thursday.
It says Justice reported in 2009 that 512 people were charged with terrorism or terrorism-related crimes for six years after the September 11, 2001, attacks. But the audit showed 544 people were actually charged during that time period. Justice also reported that 319 people were convicted or pleaded guilty to terrorism or related crimes during that time. The audit showed 324.
The inspector general says nothing was significantly overstated or understated, but Justice needs to do a better job.
A Justice spokesman says the department is committed to making sure investigations and casework related to terrorism are reported accurately.
