under W. And you know what? The people who are yelling for revolution now did not bother to complain the slightest during our last administration's
similar or same actions......so, where were they? I know damn well they were not complaining when the Patriot Act was passed.....
Where were all the Bush haters when the Foreign Intelligence Service Act was passed?
Or the Ominbus Counter terrorism Act of 1995 ?
Oh that's right spying only 'began' under the last admin
Created and passed under the Carter Administration, Expanded under numerous other administration including the guy who campaigned on say spying bad
'he was going to end it'.
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 ("FISA" Pub.L. 95–511, 92 Stat. 1783, 50 U.S.C. ch. 36) is a United States law which
prescribes procedures for the physical and electronic surveillance and collection of "foreign intelligence information" between "foreign powers"
and "agents of foreign powers" (which may include American citizens and permanent residents suspected of espionage or terrorism). The law does
not apply outside the United States. The law has been repeatedly amended since the September 11 attacks.
So the PAtriot Act was an amendment on already preexisting law.
