 #080: 02-28-05 PREPARED REMARKS OF ATTORNEY GENERAL ALBERTO GONZALES HOOVER INSTITUTION BOARD OF OVERSEERS CONFERENCE
For decades, the men and women of the Hoover Institution have had a positive and lasting impact on our nation-from their role in spreading the ideals that won the Cold War to developing the policies that continue to expand freedom and transform our society.
Herbert Hoover’s years of public service were guided by the belief that America’s sacrifice in defending freedom abroad would strengthen the founding values of our nation: freedom, justice, human dignity, and most important, opportunity.
It is a testament to the vision and leadership of our Founding Fathers, and of men like Presidents Hoover, Reagan, and George W. Bush that today, the Department of Justice continues to defend the ideals that have transcended time and generations and transformed the world.
