FORT MEADE, Md. –said Wednesday that a law hastily passed in August to temporarily give the government more power to eavesdrop without warrants on foreign terror suspects must be made permanent and expanded.
If this doesn’t happen, Bush said, “Our national security professionals will lose critical tools they need to protect our country.”
“Without these tools, it will be harder to figure out what our enemies are doing to train, recruit and infiltrate operatives into America,” he said on a visit to the super-secret National Security Agency’s headquarters in suburban. “Without these tools, our country will be much more vulnerable to attack.”
