AnonAmbientLight: I wish I knew why our government is so scared of terrorists.
imontheinternet: catpuncher: They'll stall the bill until the controversy is out of the news cycle, then drown it.I'd like to think that isn't true, butFTFA: The bill would also require a report be made public on government surveillance's effect on Americans' privacy and demand audits of the Patriot Act.No way does this pass. At this point, I'm not even sure Obama would sign it with that provision in it.
bluenote13: Someone asked me why I was not more outraged by this whole thing. My response to him was that (tin foil hat time) I assumed the government had been doing this for years at least beginning with the passage of the Patriot Act, if not well before. It is hard to get wound up about something 10 years after it started.
AnonAmbientLight: I wish I knew why our government is so scared of terrorists. Do the higher ups know some kind of disturbing truth that we dont?
