Feingold: We’re Not the Prosecutors’ Committee, We’re the Judiciary Committee

If you missed the thoroughly depressing PATRIOT Act hearing today, this was one of two highlights. Listen carefully at 17 seconds where someone who sounds like Pat Leahy sighs, “Oh boy.”

The rest of the hearing featured Democrat after Democrat arguing that we need to develop lists of all the potential suspects out there buying acetone and hydrogen peroxide.

bmaz @billmon1 @SemiMooch Agree w/all that. Agree there were some expressed concerns in 911 aftermath. But in 2007-2008? Nope, not in the least.
