Good afternoon. My name is John Cronan, and I am the Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Departments Criminal Division. Before serving in this role, I most recently supervised the Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit of the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District of New York. Prior to that, I served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, where I prosecuted violent criminals and national security defendants, including Usama Bin Ladens son-in-law.
