Vice President Dick Cheney prodded Congress on Wednesday to extend and broaden an expiring surveillance law, saying “fighting the war on terror [Americans] is a long-term enterprise” that should not come with an expiration date. Cheney Wants Surveillance Law Expanded
That’s what he should have said. Cheney and all of his ilk are still pushing to increase surveillance on Americans. We’re constantly being reminded that this kind of unadulterated bullshit is for our protection and security needs, but it’s part of a long history of lies being spewed forth from these demon spawn.

This is a brand new world of spying being authorized by Congress against innocent Americans (under Title I of the Senate bills) without any meaningful Judicial Branch check.
