Charlie Savage (New York Times) reports the House voted to extend the provisions which were set to sunset out. They did that today. While Goody was still whoring about Egypt.
You know I saw Goody speak once. On her Exception to the Rulers book tour. And she was all about how Iraq was an important story and how we had to do more than follow the military death toll because so much was taking place and the US government planned to gets its hands on this and that.

The lone-wolf provision allows surveillance of foreigners even if they have no relation to terrorist groups."
