Ashcroft Planning Multi-City Tour

WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General John Ashcroft will embark on a multi-city tour later this month to talk about the war on terrorism and the benefits of the USA Patriot Act, officials said Monday.

Ashcroft plans to kick off the tour Aug. 19 in Washington and visit more than a dozen cities. The exact itinerary was still being completed and will be released later.

The Patriot Act, passed a few weeks after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, strengthened the government's surveillance powers, beefed up anti-terrorism laws and made it easier to go after financial backers of terrorism.

Critics say the law threatens civil liberties and improperly allows the government to snoop into people's lives.
