Our Protector, John Ashcroft

The latest buzz on the Blogosphere is Ashcroft's new Victory Act (aptly named to go with my Freedom Fries).

Anyway, in case you don't want to click away, the article describes Ashcroft's Victory Act which will supposedly be introduced by Sen. Orrin Hatch. The Victory Act consists of 4 points:

  • Clamp down on Arab hawala transactions, where cash exchanged in an honor system has been funneled to terrorists.
  • Get business records without a court order in terrorism probes and delay notification.
  • Track wireless communications with a roving warrant.
  • Increase sentences for drug kingpins to 40 years in prison and $4 million in fines.

So let's see.
1. War on Terrorism
2. War on Terrorism
3. War on Terrorism
4. War on Drugs

Drugs? How did that get in there?
