WASHINGTON (AP) -- The CIA released hundreds of pages of declassified documents related to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that detail the agency's budgetary woes leading up to the deadly strikes and its attempts to track al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

The National Security Archive has obtained the documents through a Freedom of Information Act request. The archive is a private group seeking transparency in government.

Many of the documents are cited in the 9/11 Commission report, published in 2004. The documents are heavily redacted and offer little new information about what the U.S. knew about the al-Qaida plot before 2001.
