A Daily "Thought"

2/19/2006

The Senate again bowed to the wishes of the administration at the expense of the American People. The Senate will not undertake an investigation of the NSA Spy Probe Program. We would have to believe what the President and the Attorney General tell us. There is to be no independent voice to check this. What is bothering me is what Senator Roberts has said..

"An investigation at this point basically would be detrimental to this highly classified program and our efforts to reach some accommodation with the administration," said Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas.

Roberts said he was arranging a deal with the White House to modify the 1978 law governing electronic surveillance and to provide members of Congress with more extensive briefings on the closely guarded National Security Agency program.

It seems to me that there should be no accommodation regarding the constitution. Yet, somehow, The administration will once again get away with what Senator Lindsay Graham (a conservative) called a "dangerous journey". I am fearful for the future........
