The Senate Is To Blame Too

Daily Kos reports that Sen. Feingold's on reverse targeting failed 38-57. Here's the summary of the amendment:

Prohibits the government from getting around FISA's court order requirement by wiretapping an individual overseas when it is really interested in a person in the U.S. with whom that supposed foreign target is communicating.

In other words, the amendment would stop spying on you and me in the guise of a foreign terrorism case. Senate doesn't care.

The DINOs voted to undermine the Fourth Amendment: Rockefeller, Feinstein, Johnson, Landrieu and Lincoln.

GWB is the primary reason why the country is in two wars, an economic slump, and a civil liberties disaster. But the Senate bears much of the blame too.
