For me now with reaction author and attorney David Limbaugh.
And Fox News political analyst Juan Williams you know before YouTube debate wanna what your reaction to -- -- my candidate debating Obama.
What do you think about what was so confident.
Forgot what got the senator and he is free to criticize an aunt and be sort of you know a freewheeling.
The other man's present -- United States and he has his obligation is to protect -- -- thought that that the back and forth here.
I think that tit -- is you in the ACLU.
I can't believe that my man Sean -- Is now standing up with the ACLU I think a lot of conserved in the audience -- going to be like what what's going on here.
Well I actually support the NSA program I support the Patriot Act David Limbaugh's written.
And the Patriot Act is very clear.
The Patriot Act says that is this is designed to go after foreign nationals and any Americans would only be.
Look at if in fact they were connected to people that are targets.
I can I can't believe my good buddy -- is that cavalier about.
But I excusing President Obama for saying things about a very important matters when he's running for commander in chief of the United States.
And setting a different standard when he's president I think he ought to be held at the same standard did he mean -- -- did -- not.
Obama claims he's transparent if we could find out the -- About this case we might settle down some emotions but Obama is the least transparent.
We've ever seen and so we probably can't get to the facts and that's what -- really need to do.
Well hang on I indicated hang on a second David you know the words David.
First and foremost you realize that the Republican majority in the house will never ever.
Do anything to this program because they don't want to be their position of saying that they are taking away from law enforcement tools to deal with terrorists.
And I don't imagine that anybody in this and it's going to take it away.
-- that you say oh Obama is not being transparent.
This is a legal program.
One it's been authorized by the -- well the patriot I don't know there.
That congress is engaged over that Mike Rogers Republican intelligence committee says it's behind Dianne Feinstein Democrat senate Intel and if I had.
-- -- let me let me.
Dear David I I interviewed the author of the Patriot Act Jim sensenbrenner.
That this fishing expedition.
Is not within the law that it is not a loud and that it is against the spirit of the law and the written word in the law your thoughts as a lawyer.
You know I'm not an expert on the Patriot Act but I do there are some lawyers that I respect who says -- do think that it is within the law.
So I don't think we ought to turn everything on.
Jumping to conclusions about whether something is constitutional -- whether it's statutorily allowed.
We need to find out we -- study that and separate arm motions I know I hate the gathering of its neck and metadata.
But I can't say just because I hate it it's not authorized under the law.
Jim sensenbrenner I really like him and I trust that he's telling the truth when he says he didn't intend for the act authorizes.
But did the acting and writing actually authorize it and it has to give -- greater sensenbrenner -- it.
And and that but I'm so so -- I -- it and David but he did he pass the patriot I your brain would -- -- back -- that it now I don't know I you know what I thought you spoke the truth.
You know -- we've got to look into it I'm all for the debate John's -- the debate but the fact is it was passed by the US congress that time for this discussion was.
Talk about emotions.
Everybody I think there's one or two senators who voted against you know Russ Feingold voted against the Patriot Act everybody else was leaping on the bandwagon.
And at that point there were people who were saying hey I think we're given away too much.
Now that we have -- Homeland Security infrastructure.
You have all its collection.
I think there -- lot of Johnny come lately is -- who are shooting are -- you can't you can't allow the terrorist the upper hand otherwise we're gonna get.
-- -- although I don't nobody trusts Obama.
The 'cause -- -- not even in a war when we're not even in a war so why does he wanna be gathering all this metadata in the first class and done.
Actually authorize -- we need to know -- on what we need to know whether the law really does -- and what we're really aiming to get I want to find out from experts.
If gathering this kind of metadata will actually prevent.
I don't question that if -- let me ask this question one.
But this -- candidate Obama promise one thing and then he's doing so in the very different.
Isn't the least efficient way Juan.
To have a fishing expedition this this reminds me of targeting grand mom.
And and a four year old -- a stroller -- a Yemeni exchange student of the TSA.
It seems -- will -- be more efficient and targeting terrorists not that that not every American and all of their correspondents.
Well as you know -- wonderful if we knew all the terrorists before they committed the terror act but the fact is.
That in this environment especially people like this on -- -- are not have Brothers and Boston.
You've got to be on the lookout for these long -- people who are involved in activities people were making those overseas calls by the way shot.
Again under the prison program it's only people overseas were targeted not.
Americans on the second no that's Yahoo! that's Microsoft that's.
Yeah I'm capturing all.
Communications coming from overseeing all -- but it also has captured with Americans and acknowledge that in many occasions they did in fact spy on Americans.
Mats have deteriorated situation.
All right guys it is like you guys that it's right we need the debate.
Well I if I don't live happily with -- I hope we can find out -- all this by looking at past records whether President Obama actually attended Columbia that he make any calls Somalia there hasn't been working on every argument that's where you get -- -- the clock Italian.
-- -- -- -- Let's.
That one hit it out of the park right guys calls your house and still ahead tonight.
