John Snow on Civil Rights
Treasury Secretary (Pres. Bush Cabinet)
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.
