TERRORIST SURVEILLANCE
(2007-10-11)
(wgvu) - IF A NEW BILL DOESN'T GIVE A PASS TO TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPANIES THAT HELPED THE U.S. GOVERNMENT SECRETLY EAVESDROP ON PEOPLE, THEN PRESIDENT BUSH SAYS HE WON'T SIGN IT.
THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE AND JUDICIARY COMMITTEES HAVE PASSED A DEMOCRATIC BILL THAT DOESN'T GRANT THE RETROACTIVE IMMUNITY BUSH WANTS.
PETE HOEKSTRA OF HOLLAND IS THE SENIOR REPUBLICAN ON THE INTELLIGENCE PANEL AND SAYS DEMOCRATS LEFT REPUBLICANS ENTIRELY OUT OF THE CREATION OF THE BILL.
BUSH SAYS THE NEW MEASURE WOULD TAKE THE COUNTRY BACKWARD.
DEMOCRATS WANT A BILL THAT TAKES AWAY SOME OF THE NEW POWERS IT GRANTED THE GOVERNMENT TO EAVESDROP ON SUSPECTED FOREIGN TERRORISTS WITHOUT WARRANTS.
