    Sen. Leahy offers bill to sunset FISA provisions

    A bipartisan bill to sunset FISA provisions two years early has been introduced in the Senate.

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and a bipartisan group of senators offered legislation Monday to sunset some surveillance programs more than two years early to allow for proper congressional oversight.
    ....
    "This is an issue of saying, 'We want to know what our government is doing and why,' and as Americans we have the right to know what our government does and why," Leahy said in a speech on the Senate floor. "The recent revelations about two classified data collection programs have brought renewed attention to the government's broad surveillance authorities, but they also underscore the need for close scrutiny by Congress.
    ....
    Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Mark Udall (D-Colo.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) are co-sponsors of the legislation.

    This is consistent with his earlier positions.

    One of the debates we should be having (rather than the media's chase of Snowden).

    I wish Senator Leahy and his co-sponsors success on this. If it turns out Snowden is selling us out to Russia though, it will benefit those who support a strong surveillance program. We need to make sure whatever the motivations Snowden had, as you say we have to have a robust popular debate over just what kind of a society we want to have in a post 9-11 world. You give them virtual carte blanche, they'll take us for all we've got.
