Considering that the feds have gotten so much more power and funding since 911, I would say that a greater than 90% failure rate is due to our lack of support for illegal wiretaps and incarcerations.
I think that if we could only provide ten times the funding (and shut up all you silly liberals) then we could see better prosocution rates.
After all, it takes rescources to win this thing, and lack of resources means lack of results.... and lack of results translates to failure.
We just need more cases like this.. www.abovetopsecret.com...

Hmmm.....Morrocco? You could referesh my memory there. When was the last terror attack there?
At least 41 people have been killed and about 100 injured in suicide bomb attacks in Morocco's largest city, Casablanca, local officials say.
The attacks on Friday night targeted a Jewish community centre, a Spanish restaurant and social club, a hotel and the Belgian consulate.
Five explosions occurred within 30 minutes of each other. A Moroccan Government official said all the blasts were triggered by suicide bombers carrying explosives.
Officials said the victims were mainly Moroccans.
At least six Europeans - two Spaniards, two Italians and two French - were also killed, a senior hospital official said.
Witnesses spoke of the attackers having grenades and other explosives tied to their belts.
The explosions came amid worldwide terror alerts and just four days after a co-ordinated series of bombings in the Saudi Arabian capital, Riyadh, killed 34 people.
Mr Sahel said there were similarities between the bombings in Casablanca and Riyadh.
The BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner says there are indications that the Casablanca blasts were al-Qaeda inspired - and were probably the work of a "North African cell linked to al-Qaeda".
