US audit finds FBI inconsistent updating terror watch list

A new Justice Department audit shows that for almost three years the FBI gave outdated, incomplete and error-riddled data about terror suspects to be added to the government's watch list. Overall, the audit by the department's inspector general gives the FBI a mixed review for its process of nominating names and submitting other information to be included in the terror watch list maintained by US intelligence agencies. The audit was released Monday. It found that the FBI has proper controls in place to help make sure names of suspected terrorists were added accurately to the list. At the same time, it concluded that the bureau did not always pass along newly discovered information about people on the watch list or remove those who were no longer deemed a threat.
