August 7&8:
Washington, D.C: In a move that the Washington Post called a "warrantless surrender," many Democrats in both houses of Congress joined Republicans in approving expanded powers to President Bush for electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens who call or send messages into or out of the country.

Democracy Now dedicates an entire edition to discussing the implications of this congressional surrender. You can watch or listen to the program by going here:
