The Democratic-led U.S. Senate, amid warnings of further attacks on the United States, approved a bill on Friday that would allow President George W. Bush to maintain his controversial domestic spying program.
On a vote of 60-28, the Senate sent the measure to the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives for consideration as early as Saturday as lawmakers push to begin a month-long recess.
Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnel said earlier he needed the legislation "in order to protect the nation from attacks that are being planned today to inflict mass casualties on the United States."
The Senate bill was needed, congressional aides said, because of restrictions recently imposed by a secret court on the ability of U.S. spy agencies to intercept telephone calls and e-mails of suspected terrorists overseas.
Any details you'd like to provide the American people in the name of Public Interest and Safety? Does Homeland Security want to advise us or is it their job to allow the attacks to happen? You're job, too?
What are you doing to stop these attacks?
Sounds like you have plenty of information at hand.
You know attacks are being planned today to inflict mass casualties on the United States.
Did you speak to those personally who are planning these ATTACKS?
Or, is this a scare tactic to pass the aforementioned spying legislation?
