DOJ Fact Sheet: Structure of the National Security Division
Department of Justice Fact Sheet: Structure of the National Security Division
Prepared Remarks of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales at the Swearing-In Ceremony for Kenneth Wainstein and the Launch of the Department of Justice National Security Division: "Establishment of the NSD was recommended by the WMD commission and made a reality by the USA PATRIOT Act Improvement and Reauthorization, signed by the President in March. Its creation serves as an example of how intelligent analysis can lead to compelling ideas and, ultimately, effective reforms. The NSD will bring the Office of Intelligence Policy and Review and the Criminal Division's Counterterrorism and Counterespionage Sections under one authority, allowing the Department to fight threats to our national security more effectively."
