Noonan: Getting Ride of PATRIOT Act Will Work Against Rand Paul

‘I think at the end of the day, that will work against those who certainly — it will work against Rand Paul wanting to get rid of the PATRIOT Act’

NOONAN: "I think some this of comes under the heading, timing is everything. When the whole issue of privacy and the Patriot Act came up in a very big way about 18 months, two years ago, there was a certain relative sense of calm in which a debate could be launched and become serious. I kind of think right now, there is a heightened sense of danger, the government is reporting more threats. There is ISIS, there is a hotter sense of danger. I think at the end of the day, that will work against those who certainly — it will work against Rand Paul wanting to get rid of the PATRIOT Act — but it may work against certain fixes that frankly I think are needed, but timing is everything."
