Patriot Abuse: I Was Gagged By The Patriot Act While The Attorney General Was Free To Tell Falsehoods About It.

By JANET NOCEK, Hartford (CT) Courant

When the USA Patriot Act was being reauthorized in 2005, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales claimed that not one single abuse of the “national security letters” provision had been reported.

It must be his poor memory that caused Mr. Gonzales to tell Congress that no abuse had been reported. What else would explain why he did not mention the reports that described abuses and mismanagement of NSLs – which we now discover were in his possession before his testimony?
