Gutting the Patriot Act

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey have this op-ed in the WaPo on Senator Leahy's bill "to hobble or eliminate" important provisions of law for fighting terrorism.

Sunset provisions terminating Section 215 [on business records], roving wiretap, NSLs and "lone wolf" authority as of Dec. 31, 2013, are included, even though neither Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri nor Anwar al-Aulaqi is term-limited as of that date.
