The Sleeping Lion Is Awake...

In a follow-up to Bush admitting government surveillance on private citizens, Reuters is reporting that "bipartisan members of the U.S. Senate's Intelligence Committee called...for an immediate inquiry into his authorization of spying on Americans."

Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) joined Sens. Olympia Snowe (R-ME.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Cal.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) in a joint letter:
It is critical that Congress determine, as quickly as possible, exactly what collection activities were authorized, what were actually undertaken, how many names and numbers were involved over what period, and what was the asserted legal authority for such activities. In sum, we must determine the facts.
Thank the dear Lord there are true patriots on the Republican side of aisle who hold the constitution in higher regard than partisan and presidential thuggery.

Hi, Thanks for your interesting blog. Keep up the great work! I also have a site & blog about auto insurance quote, please feel free to visit.
I hope you are right that there are patriots on both sides of the aisle. But the curmudgeon part of me wonders if Hagel, for example, would be so outspoken against his Chief if (1) the country was not so outraged and (2) if he wasn't fishing to see if there is interest in him for President in 08.
