National Security lawyers awarded for secret workNational Security lawyers receive awards for at a public ceremony for mostly secret work
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Justice Department is recognizing national security lawyers but its awards ceremony offered little detail about the work the men and women did to earn the honors.
Assistant Attorney General Lisa Monaco says she is sorry that she can't say more about what the award recipients did, but that's due to the nature of the work done in the National Security Division. Some of the work was described during the ceremony only as "highly classified," and "highly sensitive."
The National Security Division was created in 2006 to combat terrorism and other national security threats.
