Washington - The Senate on Wednesday approved a wiretapping bill that expands the government's ability to spy on terrorism suspects abroad. The
legislation, passed by a 69-28 vote, now heads to President Bush for his signature.
What The Bill Does;
Revamps the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was passed in 1978 after the Watergate scandal; it does not account for recent changes in
Establishes new rules over government surveillance of suspected terrorists abroad.
Allows the government to conduct emergency wiretaps for a week without court orders on Americans communicating with people abroad if government
officials can prove the information's importance to national security.
Well here we go again. Of course they passed the damn bill!!! How else did they expect to keep there crumbling empire at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
going for the next guy!
How can a President with the approval rating of "W" keep getting things like this passed???
