President Barack Obama has signed a one-year extension of several provisions in the nation's main counterterrorism law, the Patriot Act.

Provisions in the measure would have expired on Sunday without Obama's signature Saturday.

Thrown away were restrictions and greater scrutiny on the government's authority to spy on Americans and seize their records.
I am really disappointed that this act is still so popular.

I'm dissapointed that after all the rhetoric during the Bush admin and the last pres campaign that the Dems keep voting to renew the Patriot Act unchanged.
