Senators: Curbing NSA could help ISIS

Critics of a proposal to reform the National Security Agency say the rising threat of terrorism in the Middle East should give lawmakers pause as they consider harnessing the government's spy powers. The bill from Sen. Patrick Leahy would handicap American intelligence officials at a crucial moment, they say, and make it harder to track terrorists around the globe.

Momentum'BYE

BRADENTON, Fla., Nov. 3, 2010 -- An irresistible combination of anonymous and sometimes foreign money, the rage of Republican seniors, Democratic voters' fears and apathy, and the unpredictable arrival of an infantile but influential new faction of the GOP called the Tea Party swept away the last vestiges of President Barack Obama's hope and change agenda last night, handing control of the House of Representatives to Republican conservatives and leaving the once-strong 10-seat Democratic majority in the United States Senate hanging by one uncertain vote.

Marco Rubio of Florida, who told the New York Times a few days after the then-accomplished Russian invasion of the Crimea that he wanted "a review" of the antimissile plan.
