No bill passed is better than a bad one passed. That should have dawned on the panic stricken members the first time and let it wait until they understood it. Back to the same nonsense, "oooh noooo! Time's running out." Conventional law enforcement tools had picked up enough of the 9/11 conspiracy to roll it up if they'd connected the dots. Instead, out comes the already worked up Administration bill. Sneak and peak would not have helped them and you can ask a certain Portland lawyer if it worked in his case.
The Terrorists' agenda is to change the Policy of the US government through fear, so anyone who infringes the Rights of Americans is an ally of that agenda. Get this right, the Constitution of the United States of America does not grant us Rights, it Guarantees them, and there's a huge difference. If the Senate is scared of the House of Representatives then we need people in the House that understand what Rights are. Check waldenbush's vote.
I know, this rhetoric is way too harsh. So what are you going to do if the truth is ugly, prettify it up?
