Justice Delayed by Justice In Terrorism Matters

    The Justice Department has agreed to hold off on implementing new rules on terrorism. Question is: Will it hurt in the fight against terrorism?

  WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has agreed to delay new rules giving the FBI greater leeway in investigations of suspected terrorists, deferring to concerns by senators that innocent Americans might be targeted.

In a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy released Thursday, the department said it will postpone the rules until after FBI Director Robert Mueller appears before the panel on Sept. 17.

However, the department still wants to have the rules in place by Oct. 1 to help the FBI more nimbly investigate national security cases, wrote Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Keith D. Nelson.
