"The reality is that the measure must be reapproved by Congress "

So Congress could just refuse to renew the clause.

Which was why the provision for sunsetting it was put in the Bill in the first place (I suspect over lots of opposition from the snoopers).

9/11 was 16 years ago. FISA and THE PATRIOT Act are both well overdue for reform, if not scrapping.

Or is the Oceania US now on a continuous war footing with the rest of the World?
