Bush Urges Congress to Strengthen Eavesdropping Law

Not that many people get to visit the super-secret National Security Agency but on Sept. 19, President Bush did just that.

Bush used his trip to urge Congress to strengthen a temporary eavesdropping law.

He says national security is at stake and wants to make the law permanent.

The law gives the government the right to eavesdrop, without a court order, on communications conducted by a person believed to be outside the United States.

Civil liberties groups and many Democrats say the act goes too far.

Democrats hope to change the law to provide additional oversight.
