House Speaker John Boehner issued a statement warning of the danger of letting the surveillance program expire shortly before the Senate began a rare Sunday session addressing how to deal with the issue.
“Al Qaeda, ISIL [Islamic State] and other terrorists around the globe continue to plot attacks on America and our allies,” Mr Boehner said. “Anyone who is satisfied with letting this critical intelligence capability go dark isn’t taking the terrorist threat seriously.”
The political class have no interest in protecting our Liberty. This is another example of why there is no political solution to our nation’s problems.
