We've come a long way, kid,

"This shouldn’t and can't be about politics. This is a matter of national security. Terrorists like al Qaeda and ISIL aren’t suddenly going to stop plotting against us at midnight tomorrow. And we shouldn’t surrender the tools that help keep us safe."

So we've come from the US saying you should never give up freedom for safety to saying give up your freedom, safety is much more important...

Sounds like the terrorists have already won that round, to me.
