Attorney General Eric Holder endorsed the Senate’s version of legislation that would extend three provisions of the Patriot Act that are slated to expire at the end of the year.
Holder wrote in a letter today to Senate Judiciary Committee members that he offers “strong support” for the USA Patriot Act Sunset Extension Act, which would reauthorize the “lone wolf,” records and “roving wiretap” powers. By contrast, a House version of the bill would not continue the “lone wolf” provision, which lets the government track targets who don’t have any discernible affiliation with terrorist or other foreign groups. This is unbelievable to me. It was the left that cryed and protested the Patriot Act when Bush put it into action. But now that the Democrats have the power they are hypocriticly silent. Where have all the liberal protesters gone? Are they only conserved about Glenn Beck and Fox News? Are they so busy chasing "Right Wing Extreemist" that they are letting the real terrorist go? Are they trying to hide terrorist like Hasan's FT.Hood terrorist attack from we the people at the same time trying to tell America that the "Teabaggers" are the real threat to this country? I would like to hear from the brave Americans on both sides of the issues. Your opinion counts even if we might not agree. Take the time to post your views. Thank you
