The Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Department of Justice operations and the Terrorist Surveillance program. Among the issues he addressed were the balance of national security interests and civil rights in determining presidential powers, disclosure by newspapers of the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program, prosecution of leaks of these programs, and the lack of clearance for the Office of Professional Responsibility in the Department of Justice to investigate the legality of the Terrorist Surveillance Program. He also testified about the legal authority of the presidential statements at bill signing ceremonies, administration proposals to deal with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, and the continued detention of enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. close
