As I have written on the blog in the last few days, the Democrats in Congress have let the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) expire as of last Saturday night. This has put the United States at a disadvantage in the War against Terrorism and left us vulnerable to another 9/11 type attack. Today a letter was sent to Congress by those in charge of our safety saying that in the 5 days since the law expired we have already lost valuable intelligence on the terrorist who would do harm to this country. In part the letter says:
“We have lost intelligence information this past week as a direct result of the uncertainty created by Congress’ failure to act,” says an underlined passage of a six-page letter signed by Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey and Director of National Intelligence J. Michael McConnell.
