Senate GOP says no to full inquiry into spy program
But new limits will be sought on eavesdropping
WASHINGTON -- Senate Republicans Tuesday rejected a full inquiry into the domestic spying program that was secretly authorized by President Bush, but they said they would push to impose new limits on the administration's ability to eavesdrop on Americans' phone calls and e-mail messages without a warrant.
In a party-line vote, the Republicans who control the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence also created a subcommittee of seven senators who will have access to more details of the wiretapping program in the future.
Republican leaders said they would act soon to limit unauthorized government surveillance of a terrorism suspect to an initial period of 45 days.
Oh.. well.. I guess that's alright then.
I've nothing to add at this juncture.
