HP, Pretexting, Phone Tapping and the Senate

So I can't be the only one who thinks it deeply hypocritical that the same congress that approved the wiretap bill....you know this one...

    "The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill this month that would allow, but not require, the administration to submit its warrantless wiretapping program to a secret national security court for constitutional review." - From MSNBC

...Is the same congress that is giving HP so much crap for doing it's deeply stupid, vastly crazy, investigation that is far and below way not-as-bad as what they want to authorize the administration to continue doing.

I'm not the only one, right? Right?

With wiretapping, the torture bill, and now the border fence, I'm really beginning to wonder about this country. The Democrats have really dropped the ball in terms of preventing these bills from passing. Even if the Democrats do take over Congress after the election, I'm not sure much will change.

No Chris you're not the only one.

I'm all for the protecting our homeland, however, there needs to be oversite, ANY wiretapping program by anyone needs to be done with oversite. I even question "Secret National Security Court" Who is watching them?
Do we trust congress, senate, the administration to police this policy?

Sorry for the rant
