A federal prosecutor in Washington will be in charge of rolling out a provision of the revised Patriot Act.Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says 44-year-old Kenneth Wainstein (WAYN'-steen) will head a new anti-terrorism division to break through what Gonzales calls an "infamous wall" between intelligence investigators. A presidential commission recommended the Justice reorganization after probing the flawed U-S intelligence on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The new division also will include the office that handles applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for secret search warrants in terrorism and espionage investigations. The administration bypassed that court when it authorized warrantless eavesdropping by the National Security Agency. Copyright 2006 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
