Reason 3,223 To Support The Patriot Act

Jerry Markon and Timothy Dwyer in today's Washington Post:

Agent Harry Samit told jurors at Moussaoui's death penalty trial that his efforts to secure a warrant to search Moussaoui's belongings were frustrated at every turn by FBI officials he accused of "criminal negligence." Samit said he had sought help from a colleague, writing that he was "so desperate to get into Moussaoui's computer I'll take anything."

That was on Sept. 10, 2001.

Harry Reid's proud announcement that "we just killed the Patriot Act" will continue to haunt.

By the way, in case you missed it: yesterday we ran an exclusive on the Moussaoui trial by Debra Burlingame that is an absolute must-read.
