Justice Department Report on Use of Patriot Act
Seems that a good chunk of non-terrorist related crimes are falling under the umbrella of the Patriot Act including the War on Drugs. Someone is stretching the "buying drugs supports terrorists" TV ads to the breaking point. This is the kind of stuff that will cost Bush the election - Ashcroft is now a liability and a test of how much Bush is counting on the conservative Christian loons. Giving Ashcroft the boot should be item One on the re-election checklist for 2004.
