Former Attorney General Mishandled Data

A justice department report scolds former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales for mishandling highly classified documents about an eavesdropping program and interrogating terror detainees.

The report says Gonzales failed to store the documents with proper security and at one point took them home.

The report also says he stored them in his briefcase because he did not know the combination to the safe at his house.

The Justice Department Inspector General referred the security breach to the department's national security division but the report says prosecutors declined to bring charges against Gonzales.
