Bush criticizes Democrats

According to the Seattle Times, President Bush has accused Democrats of blocking a complete reauthorization of the Patriot Act.

The White House expects there will be a heated dispute over the Patriot Act and recent relevations that President Bush secretly authorized the NSA to monitor communications within the US that involved suspected terrorists. Congress has planned hearings on the NSA program later this month and will vote on the Pastriot Act early next month, when the current extension to the Act expires.

Senator Russ Feingold, a Democrat from Wisconsin, said:
"Contrary to the president's misleading comments, nobody wants to see the Patriot Act expire," Feingold said. "We want common-sense changes to the act that would give the government the power to combat terrorism while protecting the rights and freedoms of law-abiding citizens."
