Patriot Act erneuerung vom Senat abgewiesen


4. August 2002

In a crucial vote early Friday, the bill's Senate supporters were not able to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster by Sens. Russ Feingold, D-Wisconsin, and Larry Craig, R-Idaho, and their allies. The final vote was 52-47.

President Bush, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Republicans congressional leaders had lobbied fiercely to make most of the expiring Patriot Act provisions permanent.

They also supported new safeguards and expiration dates to the act's two most controversial parts: authorization for roving wiretaps, which allow investigators to monitor multiple devices to keep a target from evading detection by switching phones or computers; and secret warrants for books, records and other items from businesses, hospitals and organizations such as libraries.

Feingold, Craig and other critics said those efforts weren't enough, and have called for the law to be extended in its present form so they can continue to try and add more civil liberties safeguards. But Bush, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and House Speaker Dennis Hastert have said they won't accept a short-term extension of the law.

If a compromise is not reached, the 16 Patriot Act provisions expire on December 31. Investigators will still be able to use those powers to complete any investigation that began before the expiration date, according to a provision in the original law...

Gute Neuigkeiten, aber nach dem großen Ansturm dagegen auch kein Wunder.

Der Iran bietet sich ja geradezu an als neue Berdohung.

Man muß aber auch sagen, daß die gerade zu drum bettel von der Weltgemeischaft bestraft zu werden.

Neue Bedrohung? Iran zum Beispiel. Und aufgebauscht werden muss vielleicht nicht einmal, der Präsident dort bauscht die Bedrohung schon selbst auf.
