Of 2,000 civil liberties complaints, Justice Dept. investigates one
By The Post's Jeff Stein in SpyTalk:
Nearly 2,000 civil liberties complaints were filed against Justice Department officials and employees in the first six months of 2010, but only one was deemed worthy of further investigation by the department’s inspector general, a report released Tuesday said.
The investigations and reports were required by a section of the USA Patriot Act, the wide-ranging package of counterterrorism initiatives passed by Congress in October, 2001.
