The article focuses on Michael Chertoff, a federal appeals court judge, who was named by U.S. President George W. Bush to succeed Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge in early January 2005. Chertoff, a leading figure in the nation's legal response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, headed the U.S. Justice Department's criminal division and played a central role in the creation of the Patriot Act, which provided U.S. intelligence sweeping powers to investigate potential terrorists and the legal authority to detain them without a court hearing.
