Attorney General Alberto Gonzales

conducted an interview with me earlier today in which he “categorically rejects” the implication in yesterday’s New York Times’ editorial that the NSA program has been aimed at antiwar protesters. He also confirmed that he is not aware of any surveillance of American media under the program. He also confirmed that he has been involved in some of the meetings in which members of Congress were briefed –from both parties– and that no one he has briefed objected to the program during the briefing or after the briefing by letter or any other communication.

He also states in the interview that he is unaware of anyone who would have standing to challenge the program.

The interview will air at 3:06 PM Pacific, and a transcript will be up at later in the afternoon.

The Newshour interview I refer to in the opening of the interview is here.

The case the AG references is In re Sealed Case No. 02-001.

UPDATE: Austin Bay has some additional thoughts on the NSA program. (HT: Instapundit.)
