Hmm... Victory act, eh? After reading it, it seems to be geared toward "Narco-terrorism". Seems as though the war on drugs is part of the greater
war on terrorism... but it doesn't appear to be PATRIOT II-- Regardless here are some interesting selections:
"The Government shall not be required to return property to a person who is incarcerated".
P. 47, lines 4-6
Section 505- Expanded Jurisdiction to issue order to intercept communications:
"...a judge of any district court of the United States
(including a mgistrate judge of such court) or any United States court of appeals
with jurisdiction over the offense being investigated..."
p. 87, lines 9-13
"...the term 'wireless' means the use of electromagnetic waves (rather than some form of wire) to carry a signal over a communication path"....
p. 87, lines 21-23
"or a device that employs wireless technology in part to transmit wire, oral, or electronic communications, the interception of which is authorized
by a Federal court"
p. 87-8, lines 26-3

Note that SUSPICION of involvement seems to be enough...
American Civil Liberties Union staff attorney Jameel Jaffer added: "Absolutely nothing would prevent the attorney general from using these
subpoenas to obtain the records of people who have no connection to terrorism, drug trafficking or crime of any sort."
