Thanks, Joe.

"Lieberman said he would install a systematic review of the new powers under the Patriot Act to determine their impact on civil liberties before supporting their extension." How about a systematic review to decide what needs to be rescinded before even thinking about extending shit?

"Lieberman would direct the Justice and Homeland Security departments to disclose as much information as possible about how they are using the Patriot Act and about those arrested and detained in the war on terrorism." That's a big part of the fucking problem with the PATRIOT Act, Joe - they don't have to fucking tell us what it is that they're doing.

"Industry-funded research would be disclosed under the plan." This WOULD be nice, so when when we have things like scientists funded by Exxon-Mobil telling us garbage like global warming "needs more study," we can get an idea as to how full of shit they are.
