FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was behind the biggest law enforcement intelligence failure of the 20th century in repeatedly declaring that there was no such thing as the Mafia.
While that may have been a major law enforcement intelligence failure, my vote for the biggest one would be the failure to capitalize on the defections of Whittaker Chambers, Walter Krivitsky, and others in the late 1930's and roll up the Soviet Union's spy rings.
