Mar. 24, 2003
WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court refused Monday to be drawn into a dispute
over the boundaries of a law giving the government broader surveillance authority
after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The American Civil Liberties Union and
other organizations wanted the justices to consider when the government should
be allowed to monitor someone's telephone conversations and e-mail, then use
the information to prosecute them.
New Criticism on Prewar Use of Intelligence
By CARL HULSE and DAVID E. SANGER
Published: September 29, 2003
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 - The Bush administration, which has been laboring to
build domestic and international support for its Iraq policies, is facing
renewed criticism about how it managed intelligence before the war, and internal
tensions over the leak of a C.I.A. agent's identity. The debate over the
rationale for the war was reopened by leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, who
have delivered a critical interim assessment of how intelligence agencies
concluded that Iraq had forbidden weapons and ties to Al Qaeda. There were "too
many uncertainties" in the outdated and inadequate information underlying a
National Intelligence Estimate that the administration used to justify the war,
the senior Republican and the senior Democrat on the panel said in a newly
disclosed letter to George J. Tenet, director of central intelligence.
Bush Administration Is Focus of Inquiry - CIA Agent's Identity Was Leaked to
By Mike Allen and Dana Priest Washington Post Staff Writers Sunday, September
28, 2003; Page A01
At CIA Director George J. Tenet's request, the Justice Department is looking
into an allegation that administration officials leaked the name of an
undercover CIA officer to a journalist, government sources said yesterday. The o
perative's identity was published in July after her husband, former U.S. ambassador
Joseph C. Wilson IV, publicly challenged President Bush's claim that Iraq had
tried to buy "yellowcake" uranium ore from Africa for possible use in nuclear
weapons. Bush later backed away from the claim. The intentional disclosure of
a covert operative's identity is a violation of federal law. The officer's
name was disclosed on July 14 in a syndicated column by Robert D. Novak, who
said his sources were two senior administration officials.
