Bush Seeks to Expand Access to Private Data
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=68&ncid...


<snip>


Mr. Bush also wants to expand the use of the death penalty in crimes like terrorist financing, and he wants to make it tougher for defendants in such cases to be freed on bail before trial. These proposals are also sure to prompt sharp debate, even among Republicans.


Opponents say that the proposal to allow federal agents to issue subpoenas without the approval of a judge or grand jury will significantly expand the law enforcement powers granted by Congress after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. And they say it will also allow the Justice Department after months of growing friction with some judges to limit the role of the judiciary still further in terrorism cases


Oh boy, looks like Patriot Act II has arrived.
