America Needs a Strong FISA Bill (Rep. Chris Shays)
As the 9/11 Commission points out, we are not combating terrorism as if it’s some ethereal being. We are confronting Islamists terrorists, real people who would do us harm. If you want to deal with the consequence of a terrorist attack, write a weak FISA law. But if you want to detect and prevent a terrorist act, write a law that works and help insure the communication industry works with us.
