read the article:

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday asked lawmakers to expand the bureau’s ability to obtain records without first asking a judge, and he joined Attorney General Alberto Gonzales in seeking that every temporary provision of the anti-terrorism Patriot Act be renewed.

If they don't want to ask a judge then that means they don't want to answer to anyone. I guess they want to do away with the bill of rights as well. It's probably just a matter of time if not already when anybody can be declared as an enemy of the state and be subject to harassment and extreme unauthorized illogical scrutiny if you get on the wrong list. hmmm, judges won't be safe either if they get on the wrong list. I wonder if they thought about that. I'm just glad they (whoever is in power of the lists) never make mistakes. I mean I wouldn't want to be another Ted Kennedy ( a once famous US senator) who was denied flying privileges because he was put on the no fly list. How would you like it if everyone who ever even viewed a thread let alone post something on ATS was put on a terrorist watch list? I don't know if these lists have any oversight by a judge or an independent party.

Fourth post down.

So now I'm off to the USA Today archives online, to see if I can find the whole article. Will post later if anything turns up.

Ok, all attempts by me have met with failure. I have found the archived links to the original article, but to no avail, could have something that it only goes back to 98.

1. Director: FBI needs more oversight

Then there was;

I have no clue what that is about, and the 2020 part really makes me wonder...never seen a 404 like that one ever, anyone?

So there you have it, or not as it seems.

Hey, what's wrong with that?

I don't mind giving up my liberties for false freedom. I welcome it. You people against the Patriot Acts aren't real patriots like me. If the Feds want to search my house, let em! We gotta stop Al-Qaeda! They might attack us again! While I'm at it, I'll even take my microchip and national ID card, too! And I'll take a transponder for the toll roads too, the money funds the WOT!

After all, why shouldn't I be an idiot like most of the country...

Are there people out there that are still under the mistaken impression that the government will play fair? If they really want something they will do whatever they have to to get it.

And if you disagree you are a terrorist or so they say....

Almost makes you wish for a modern Thomas Paine and Ben Franklin doesn't it?
