You make an excellent point about the “intel” bill. The fact is that there is a bunch of stuff in there that doesn’t directly bear on intel, whether it’s wiretap authority, aviation security measures, more border guards, provisions related to money laundering, and attempts to beef up our public diplomacy, especially with regard to Pakistan and Afghanistan. To label this thing an intel bill and exclude tough immigration proposals drawn from the 9/11 report on that basis was basically a fraud.
