Overdue Setbacks for Bush

It is good news that the Congress is finally saying NO to some of this administration's frightening efforts to limit the civil liberties of the people. Since 9/11, they have claimed such rights and have not really made it a safer environment, according to the report card of the former members of the 9/11 Commission. They have waged war, slaughtered thousands of Iraqis and Afghans, caused the deaths of more than 2000 US military, and utterly failed in stopping terrorism, as in Madrid, Bali, London etc. Bin Laden still roams freely. The Hussein trial is a farce. Good for Congress on the Patriot Act and on the uproar about the secret surveillance.
