It will be interesting to see how far Sen. Arlen Specter goes with his threat to withhold funding for Pres. Bush’s domestic spying program unless Bush provides more information on NSA surveillance activities to Congress.
Yesterday Specter filed an amendment to a spending bill, according to the AP, would “enact a ‘prohibition on use of funds for domestic electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes unless Congress is kept fully and currently informed.'”
Of course Specter said he’s stand firm for meaningful reform to the Patriot Act, and we all know how that turned out.
