Be prepared for another attack at home

I cannot believe the stupidity of our elected officials. Maybe it comes from too much education? On Wednesday, Attorney General Gonzales sent a letter to Sens. Spectar and Leahy letting them know that the "domestic" spying (which was leaked by someone who was never charged, btw) would be discontinued so that every case of eavesdropping would go through FISA. This is the program that helped us to foil many attacks to date. It is international calls coming into the USA or calls going to known countries that support al Qaida!

ZDNet news has this: Attorney general: NSA spy program to be reformed. I expect every citizen who reads this to call the White House at 202-456-1111 and ask, "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?"

They will now have to have probable cause instead of cause for reasonable searches. Why is President Bush giving up presidential powers? I am very afraid. You should be, too. I usually say about here, "Have a great day." Today I will say, "Eat, Drink and be Merry, for tomorrow we die."

Update: American Civil Liberties Union et al., v. National Security Agency et al.

Hat tip: Council on Foreign Relations.
