What I don't understand is whether Patriot Act has been considered null and this kind of surveillance brought to an end... Nobody has talked about that at all, so is Obama just keeping it going? I really don't know, so I'm just wondering.
Anyway, this isn't that big of a surprise. In Cheney's words: "This war will be fought in the shadows, or the dark side if you will". If this was necessary in the initial aftershock of 9/11, is it still necessary? Why do you NEED to sustain infringements on our civil liberties?
Bush went beyond warrantless wiretapping, report finds.
