Some provisions were created under FISA,Reagan and the 1996 anti-terrorism act.

9/11 just gave the opportunity to put all these provisions in one bill.

October 26 2001 was when it was signed into law so I don't believe they could put a bill that broad and specific in 5 weeks.

Reagadless the "act" was "created during the Bush administration.

Maybe I’m missing something but if the last guy to occupy the White House had the worst terrorist attack on American soil happen on his watch and then drain the treasury of billions as he implemented a failed strategy in Afghanistan, and then lied this nation into a war in Iraq with another failed strategy…
And then now we have a brilliant President who change all those failed policies and strategies and there hasn’t been a single successful terrorist attack on American soil… Osama bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda has been decimated, why is there anyone even questioning this President?
‘We the People’ just a few months ago landslided him for another 4 years with a mandate that says we agree with everything that he has done over the previous 4 years… so please, proceed.
So you wont have a problem when a Republican President kills any American citizen without due process who he deems a "terrorist" then?
