Reports that in secret congressional testimony, Robert `Bear' Bryant, the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) counterintelligence chief, alleged that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had failed to cooperate with the bureau in nearly a dozen espionage cases since 1991. Bryant and FBI director Louis Freeh were asked to explain why CIA officer Aldrich Ames hadn't been unmasked sooner as an alleged Russian mole. Possible reason--the failure of the FBI and CIA to get along.
