I really think anyone who is suprised by this news piece was living in total denial.
Something the outraged conservatives should keep in mind as well:
Obama voted for the Patriot Act.
The definition of “terrorist” is pretty much whatever he decides it is.
Be careful about granting power to government when the promise not to abuse that power.
The promise is as solid as the paper it is written on.
It is up to “activist judges” (who are the ones who are restraining the power of government) to say something – though the last administration was pretty clear that this wouldn’t matter to them.
Is this one any different?
Be careful what you wish for.
