RE: [lpsf-discuss] Article: And Now, Martial Law

Ron and others,
   I went to the that you recommended we read regarding the martial law bill and found that it is an opinion piece by Ted Rall (who is he?). Anyway he says about HR5122 and I quote, "Patrick Leahy (D-VT) sounded the alarm during senatorial debate, but U. S. controlled media ignored him"...
     I'm asking: If Senator Leahy thought the senate version of HR5122 (which is S. 2766) was so bad, why was he one of 96 Senators who voted FOR the bill? The other 4 (Enzi, Rockefeller, Lieberman and Sununu) did not vote at all.
