From American Progress Action Fund:
Rep. Porter Goss (R-PA) ? who President Bush recently nominated to head the CIA ? has recently introduced legislation that would allow the agency to arrest U.S. citizens. The bill would "substantially alter?if not overturn?a 57-year-old ban on the CIA conducting operations inside the United States." The Goss bill "would enable the president to issue secret findings allowing the CIA to conduct covert operations inside the United States?without even any notification to Congress." According to Jeffrey H. Smith, a former general counsel of the CIA, the language of the legislation "on its face would have allowed President Nixon to authorize the CIA to bug the Democratic National Committee headquarters."
I have nothing but low expectations. Perhaps this means that I won't be too disappointed. One can only hope.
