A Texas congressman says the FBI made serious missteps in its handling of information about a known terrorist's communications with an Army psychiatrist leading up to the deadly 2009 attack in Fort Hood, Texas.

Republican Rep. Michael McCaul says the FBI's Washington division fell back on political correctness and did not pass critical information about a potential terrorist inside the U.S. military to people who might have prevented the attack.

McCaul was briefed on the findings of a more than two-year independent review by former FBI Director William Webster. In 2009, FBI Director Robert Mueller asked Webster to take an in-depth look at how the bureau handled the investigation.

The FBI did not respond to a request for comment but is expected to release an unclassified version of the report.
