Then we get this piece:
President's Statement on H.R. 199, the "USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005"Ok, so we should skip over the fact that the folks at whitehouse.gov have not always been a reliable source on the positions that are being held by the white house, including, but not limited to their citation that they thught the president was talking about HR 199...
Today, I have signed into law H.R. 3199, the "USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005," and then S. 2271, the "USA PATRIOT Act Additional Reauthorizing Amendments Act of 2006." The bills will help us continue to fight terrorism effectively and to combat the use of the illegal drug methamphetamine that is ruining too many lives.
The executive branch shall construe the provisions of H.R. 3199 that call for furnishing information to entities outside the executive branch, such as sections 106A and 119, in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch and to withhold information the disclosure of which could impair foreign relations, national security, the deliberative processes of the Executive, or the performance of the Executive's constitutional duties.
The executive branch shall construe section 756(e)(2) of H.R. 3199, which calls for an executive branch official to submit to the Congress recommendations for legislative action, in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch and to recommend for the consideration of the Congress such measures as he judges necessary and expedient.

But isn't it just so cute, once again, that the president is so willing to comply with the law as long as he feels that it is ok.
Great! Safer, or SaferIshier....
At least it is not like Rummy Trying to con folks into believing that if there is a 'civil war' in Iraq, that the Iraqi Military will deal with that while the american military in Iraq will continue it's efforts to restore the wetlands...
OR ARE AMERICANS THAT STOOPID!!! didn't they notice that it was the Serbian Army that was holding the siege of sarajevo while the evil liberal multiculturalists who had formerly been so committed to art, literature, theatre, music and poetry, got to learn how to do their own counter-sniper fire so that their women could get potable water.
