FBI Director Speaks at ACLU Conference

We're sorry we missed this--FBI Director Robert Mueller spoke at the ACLU Meeting in Washington Friday--1.400 members were present--and he got good marks.

We don't know what he said besides the few quips reported in the article, but we give Mueller a lot of credit for showing up and for saying he wants to keep a dialogue open on civil liberties issues. Unlike Ashcroft, he didn't unconditionally defend the treatment of immigrants post-9/11 even in face of the recent Inspector General Report. To the contrary, he said he expected the FBI to adopt many of the report's recommendations.
