Patriot Act Renewed for Short Term

It appears that the Patriot Act has been renewed for a few months. The White House seems to have understood the strength of the opposition to a permanent extension to the Patriot Act as it exists that they probably let Bill Frist bring it to the floor for a vote.

As long as concerned citizens regardless of party affiliation continue to raise issues about some parts of the Patriot Act, I suspect that it will never be allowed to become permanent. This is not going to take a compromise with Congress. This is going to take a compromise with the people.

AP has the story.
