Report of NSA Spying Prompts Call for Probe

Maybe the Senate is going to do its job and provide oversight on an administration out of control:

Report of NSA Spying Prompts Call for Probe: "Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter put the Bush administration on notice Friday that his panel would hold hearings into a report that the National Security Agency eavesdropped without warrants on people inside the United States.

'There is no doubt that this is inappropriate,' said Specter, R-Pa., calling hearings early next year 'a very, very high priority.' He wasn't alone in reacting harshly to the report. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said the story, first reported in Friday's New York Times, was troubling."
