  •  Yes, and we need to stop it (0+ / 0-)

    A best case scenario seems to be blocking a  vote on the new  FISA or the PAA.  Let the deadlines come and go, and the updates made by Bush’s Congress expire...

    FISA does not expire on Friday, contrary to Allen's gullible parroting of what his anonymous White House friend told him. It continues indefinitely even if the PAA expires. And under FISA's long-standing provisions, the Government -- just as Bush himself said back in October, 2001 -- has all the power it needs to eavesdrop on The Terrorists provided it gets a warrant from the FISA court or, in cases of emergency, within 72 hours after it begins eavesdropping.

    There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it - always." - Gandhi
