((A provision of the Patriot Act allows federal investigators in certain circumstances to delve into library and bookstore records, without notifying patrons.
Many librarians and civil liberties groups are hoping to change the law, but a viewer from Bassett (W.M. Farley, Jr.) defends it.
"NOWHERE in that section, by any stretch of the imagination, is the power to simply waltz into a library and conduct a "fishing expedition" granted to any law enforcement agency. The act grants power only to persons of designated positions in the FBI to obtain court orders for the release of records (and the word library is never mentioned). ..It's apparent that in preparing the piece you only spoke to library professionals and ACLU-types, both of whom are running around willy-nilly attempting to strike fear into the hearts of library patrons...Please research this and present the facts as they exist in another story, so as not to create undue opposition to the Patriot Act, which can be a great tool in the quest for our national security."
