Gonzales says government in better position to avert future terrorism attacks
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says the U.S. is now in a much better position to prevent terrorist attacks. Appearing on NBC's "Today" show, Gonzales acknowledged there were laws on the books before Nine-Eleven that "discouraged the sharing of information" among law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
Gonzales says many of those laws "have now been dismantled." Gonzales' comments were in response to a Justice Department report that says the FBI missed at least five opportunities to uncover vital information that might have led agents to the hijackers.
