Attorney General Gonzales Meets With ACLU
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales met with the ACLU today in an effort by the group to bring the Patriot Act in line with the Constitution. The ACLU reports (by email, check their site later for the press release):
ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero addressed the most extreme provisions of the Patriot Act, including those that involve "sneak and peek" warrants, the so-called "library records" provision, and the overbroad definition of terrorism. These provisions came under heavy, bipartisan scrutiny from lawmakers in recent weeks, during Congressional hearings on the Patriot Act. Some parts of the act are set to sunset, or expire, this December.
