the republican-controlled senate is to give sweeping new powers to the fbi..
what this means is the agency will be able to do just about anything…and removes any requirment of judicial overseeing/approval around listening warrent etc…
these powers will extend to having secret access to all aspects of americans’ lives..to the extent of including library records…what you’ve been reading..cor!
(the land of the brave and the home of the free, eh?)
btw. i wonder what our local rightwing boosters of bush et al as pillars of freedom think about this one..i must ask them..:)..
my guess would be they will fall back on the “enemies without..enemies within’ defence..
