Mr. Ashcroft’s speaking address, “Leadership in Challenging Times,” will focus on the leadership and conviction required to make tough decisions and implement historic policy. During his time in President Bush’s administration, Mr. Ashcroft has been credited with overseeing a historic era of safety and security for our country in the wake of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Under his leadership, the Justice Department initiated a tough anti-terrorism campaign, took criminals off the street, reduced gun crime, and targeted illegal drugs.

The book will be available for purchase prior to Mr. Ashcroft’s speaking address at the Hofstra University Book Store and also after the address at the book signing.

In Never Again: Securing America and Restoring Justice, Mr. Ashcroft breaks his silence about historic events that transpired during his term of office, including the largest terrorist attack in U.S. history, the enactment and defense of the Patriot Act, the Robert Hanssen spy scandal, the execution of Timothy McVeigh, and the recently discovered domestic surveillance program authorized by President Bush.
