Suddenly, It Dawns On Them…

Interesting article on how Congress (specifically Republicans in Congress) is having trouble getting the Bush Administration to give information on how it’s using the PATRIOT Act. Rep. James Sensenbrenner (Wisconsin, R) told Ashcroft, “If you want to play, ‘I’ve got a secret,’ good luck getting the PATRIOT Act extended. Because if you’ve got bipartisan anger in the Congress, the sunset will come and go and the PATRIOT Act disappears.”
However, the new draft of the PATRIOT Act proposes deleting the sunset clause and making the act permanent.
