Here's a nice little story from the Washington Times about Republican lawmakers voicing concerns over any new security measures. See story at: [url]www.washtimes.com/national/20010919-14794881.htm[/url] Some nice quotes: "If we were going to be absolutely safe," Rep. Frank D. Lucas, Oklahoma Republican, "we'd have to restrict people's freedoms to the point that it wouldn't be America anymore." Virginia Gov. James Gilmore, stressed "the paramount importance of preserving our citizens' constitutional rights and civil liberties." "We can meet this terrorist threat without trampling the Constitution, here or at home," said Mr. Gilmore, the chairman of the commission. "In fact, the goal of the enemy would have us trample our constitutional rights. We don't have to do that." Mr. Gilmore emphasized that the elected leaders or the nation's intelligence and law-enforcement leaders "should never ask the people of the United States to give up their freedoms because of an attack like this."
