House Resolution Re: SWIFT Leaks

The House Rules Committee has posted the text of HRes 895. The resolution 'supports intelligence and law enforcement programs to track terrorists and terrorist finances conducted consistent with Federal law and with appropriate Congressional consultation' and 'specifically condemns the disclosure and publication of classified information that impairs the international fight against terrorism and needlessly exposes Americans to the threat of further terror attacks by revealing a crucial method by which terrorists are traced through their finances. '

It should be passed by the House tonight.

A resolution is an insufficient reponse to leaks as serious as what we've just seen, but hopefully law enforcement will prosecute those who've broken the law.

Back to the top.
