Ed O`Reilly on Homeland Security
Democratic Senate Challenger
Q: What would you cut?
A: I need more time to look at what to cut, but it would be in the areas of nuclear weapons and conventional warfare. I would preserve and enhance anything that would protect our troops.
Q: What actions would take about the Patriot Act? And about wiretapping?
A: I would have been in the Senate leading a filibuster and getting the one vote necessary to maintain the filibuster on August 3rd when FISA allowed NSA and the AG the right to eavesdrop without a warrant upon U.S. Citizens communicating with people outside of the U.S. My opponent was AWOL on this vote
