    Obama Extends Patriot Act

    Sunday, Feb 28, 2010 @03:05pm CST

    (Washington, DC) -- One of the most well-known and controversial pieces of legislation passed during the administration of former President George W. Bush has been renewed.

    President Obama has signed a bill extending the Patriot Act for a year.

    The legislation was first passed after the 9-11 terrorist attacks of 2001, giving the government broad authority in terrorist surveillance. Without the extension, several provisions of the law would have expired on Saturday.

    Congressional Democrats had tried to add more civil liberty protections into the law, but were unable. Republicans successfully argued changing the law would undermine efforts to track suspected terrorists.

    I guess the Patriot Act was not part of the change he was talking about.
