Obama Supports Extending Patriot Act

It must be tough for a Progressive to support Obama. This flies directly in their face but he continues to go with it to keep our country safe.

The Obama administration supports extending three key provisions of the Patriot Act that are due to expire at the end of the year, the Justice Department told Congress in a letter made public Tuesday.

Lawmakers and civil rights groups had been pressing the Democratic administration to say whether it wants to preserve the post-Sept. 11 law's authority to access business records, as well as monitor so-called "lone wolf" terrorists and conduct roving wiretaps.

The wiretaps thing was what the leftists hated Bush for and Obama just wants to keep them going. I always thought they are a good idea for the most part as long as they are directed at terrorists. I feel that if they were in place prior to 9/11 we would have had a chance of stopping Atta in his tracks.
