Aiding Terrorists: An Examination of the Material Support Statute, Hearing Before the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, One Hundred Eighth Congress, Second Session, May 5, 2004 [open pdf - 4MB]
From Orrin G. Hatch's opening statement: "This is part of our continuing bipartisan series of hearings examining the effectiveness of current laws aimed at protecting America from terrorism. One of this Committee's challenges is to ask whether additional tools and oversight are needed as we evaluate the adequacy of current laws, including the PATRIOT Act's impact on our security, privacy, and civil liberties. I would like to thank my colleague, Senator Leahy, as well as other members of this Committee for their cooperation in conducting these important hearings. I also want to express my appreciation to the men and women in the Justice Department who are leading this Nation's vital efforts to prevent terrorism, and I look forward to hearing the Department's witnesses today and their views." Statements, letters, and documents submitted for the record include those of the following: Russell D. Feingold, Orrin G. Hatch, Patrick J. Leahy, Gary M. Bald, Daniel J. Bryant, David Cole, Paul Rosenzweig, Christopher A. Wray, Robert M. Chesney, and William E. Moschella.
