That's the reaction of a lot of Americans to the new and increased powers of surveillance the FBI has deigned to grant itself recently. These
new powers include the ability to snoop on the rest of us in our places of worship, on the Internet, and wherever else the American way of life is
threatened by evil people who have the nerve to not agree with everything said by the Bush administration.
