In His Own Words: Allen West | “My reasons for voting yes to Patriot Act extension”


1-  Several of the 911 terrorists used public computers to review their September 11th plane tickets- ( this happened in the very district I represent- so this is personal to me) 

2- Without roving wiretap authority, investigators would be forced to seek a new court order each time they need to change the location, phone or computer that needs to be monitored.  Terrorists and foreign spies use multiple communications devices to evade detection. 

3- This provision would prevent terrorists who work on their own from escaping surveillance simply because they are not agents of a foreign power or avowed members of an international terrorist group:  think Major Hasan- Fort Hood, and the Times Square Bomber 

I care about this country and this all comes down to protecting us from a REAL enemy that has found a new battleground: The United States.  Law abiding citizens liberties will be respected.

    The provision in question still targets everyone who is suspect, does it not? While not popular because of the PC crowd, finding illegal aliens, passport frauds and those who’ve stayed past their visas and deporting them would remove most of your threats from the country while at the same time ensuring ICE and CBP does their job properly.

    But it Violates the US Constitution, “We the People” don’t need your Government “protection”. This is the only strike I have agains’t you, but it is a big one.
    We are watching! Protect our borders and a lot of this will go away.
