John Snow on Civil Rights

Treasury Secretary (Pres. Bush Cabinet)


Extend Patriot Act-it provides needed tools

We’ll do everything in our power to defend the homeland. And we know that the best way to defend the homeland is to stay on the offensive. The best way to protect America is to find the killers and bring them to justice before they ever harm another American -- and that’s exactly what President Bush’s administration will continue to do, with your help.

This is why the Patriot Act is so important, and why Congress needs to extend it. The Patriot Act gives federal law enforcement - some of whom operate under the Treasury Department’s umbrella - the tools they need to seize terrorists’ assets and disrupt their cells. The Patriot Act removed legal barriers that once prevented the FBI and the CIA from sharing information, information that is necessary to uncover terrorist plots before they are carried out in America. The Act also imposes tougher penalties on terrorists and their supporters. The goal is to send a clear message to those who wish to harm us: that there will be a consequence.
