Chronicle was an inviolate of the

the National StiifU
at its congress last summer," said
Curtis Cans, national affairs pres

During his visit to the uni

views on the suspension of the
Chronicle and the NSA's policy
behind such actions.
According to Cans, the resolu

last summer states that the edi

the paper and cannot be removed
