The Christian Science Monitor has a good summary of all of the debate that has transpired over PATRIOT reauthorization or, in other words, PAREA. As noted previously, I've never supported PAREA as long as "administrative subpoena's are included, but I still support the reauthorization of PATRIOT. In my mind, the crux of the matter is this; no judge-no dice. In an odd moment, I agree with Diane Feinstein when she says, "This is a very broad power, with no check on that power. It's carte blanche for a fishing expedition."
