As controversial provisions of the Patriot Act near their expiration date, intelligence agencies say they need more powers, not fewer. Their wish list includes the ability to subpoena a wide array of records without judicial approval. We look at the future of the Patriot Act.

Guests:

Richard Schmitt, covers Justice Department for The Los Angeles Times

Chuck Rosenberg, Chief of Staff to Deputy Attorney General

Peter Swire, Chief Counselor for Privacy in the Clinton administration; law professor at the Ohio State University Law School
