For those of you interested in being more involved with the West Wing debate, they have a site, http://www.nbc.com/The_West_Wing/Campaign/Debate/submit.shtml where you can submit questions. It is probably too late to get the questions in, but it is worth a try.
I submitted this question:
Today's Washington Post reports that, "The FBI now issues more than 30,000 national security letters a year, according to government sources, a hundredfold increase over historic norms"
Do you believe that the Patriot Act as it now stands is making the United States safer, or do you believe that the erosion of civil rights is endangering the United States?
The Washington Post article starts off talking about the case here in Connecticut. You can read the article here.
I hope you all come back to join us as we live blog the debate.
