Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. discusses the Patriot Act in his column at TownHall.com. The act is coming up for renewal and Gaffney gives some good reasons for its renewal, and busts a few of the myths surrounding the act as well.

Excellent column. Quite lucid and enlightening. I have not seen any of my rights disappear. I don't know what the Left is harping about.

The Left's reaction makes me realize that, all things considered, an attack such as what happened on 9/11/2001 could not have been prevented. If the government instituted policies to prevent such an attempt, the Left would have been up in arms, accusing the government of tyranny and whatnot. And the worse part is that the government's hands are tied: they can't reveal sensitive information (which would include the details of foiled plots) which might inform the people why such measures are needed and how they will help. After all, despite all we knew about al-Qaedah before 9/11, we didn't take them seriously enough.

I think the Patriot Act is brilliant: an excellent way to integrate protection of rights and national security concerns.
