Senate Committee Misses Chance to Limit Patriot Act
CDT's Gregory Nojeim has a guest blog post today on the American Constitution Society's blog. Nojeim discusses the PATRIOT Act markup from yesterday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing and voices his disappointment with the committee's failure to take action on the issues surrounding National Security Letters (NSL). CDT has been an active voice in calling for the administration to take steps to protect civil liberties that may be threatened under certain PATRIOT Act provisions. Let us know what you think of the ACS post as we continue to work on ensuring that civil liberties are being protected while national security policy is being crafted.
