Fact of the Day: Janet Reno

Janet Reno was Attorney General of the United States (basically the highest ranking person in law enforcement in the country) from 1993 until 2001 under President Bill Clinton. She was the first woman to hold the title and the 2nd longest serving Attorney General in the history of the nation. During her tenure she oversaw the handling of the Waco siege, the anti-trust suit against Microsoft, the capture of  Ted Kaczynski and Timothy McVeigh, the international custody struggle of the Cuban boy Elian Gonzalez, and many other events.
