Today must be your "catch up on what everyone has been saying for the last five years" day.

Yes, this is just a letter dashed off in a single news cycle. But Sensenbrenner has had ample cause to rethink the wisdom of the bill he authored on several previous occasions. He has a curious history of insisting that it is good law, then feeling "betrayed" by the people implementing it.

For at least the third time, Sensenbrenner says that the FBI has betrayed the true intentions of the Patriot Act and violated the civil liberties of Americans. What ought to be obvious, by now, is that the law he wrote and championed -- and defended against the notion that it would be abused -- has been repeatedly abused because it is flawed. Civil liberties have repeatedly been violated because it doesn't do enough to protect them. So long as it remains law, abuses will happen again. Is the little Dutch boy at the dike going to figure that out before he runs out of fingers?
