DOD USS Cole Commission Report

Released on January 9, 2001, the final report on the October 12 bombing of the USS Cole focuses on the additional steps needed to combat terrorism, including more timely transfers of intelligence reports and better coordination among government agencies. The report does not assign blame for the attack, and a separate, internal Navy report has recommended against sanctioning the Cole's captain or crew. Outgoing Defense Secretary William Cohen, however, has asked a senior adviser to review the findings to see if they raise questions about accountability among military commanders. An executive summary and the unclassified findings and recommendations summary have been placed online at the Department of Defense DefenseLINK site.
