President Bush urged Congress Thursday to give him "additional authority" to continue his administration's warrantless eavesdropping program. The speech was his latest effort in several days to mark the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by framing the election-year national security debate to political and policy advantage.

Looks like Bush isn't happy with just the patriot act and now want's to extend his powers so he can homes without a warrant

Oh boy... this gives me a really bad feeling. Admitting to the secret prisons and renditions, admitting the prisoners should get fair trials, admitting that congress needs to ok wiretapping... all during the run up to mid-term elections. This is political suicide for the republicans and I can only think of one possibility - there isn't going to be a mid-term election.

Everyone stay safe on Monday. Stay out of the city centers, stay off public transport and don't fly if you can avoid it.
