Oppressive anti-terrorist laws

Orin Kerr, of The Volokh Conspiracy, notes the powers French law enforcement authorities have for the fight against terrorism.

Public debates about the war on terrorism are filled with lots of delicious ironies. The fact that the French government has many powers that are orders of magnitude greater than anything in the Patriot Act surely ranks up as one of the better ones.

Maybe those who object to the Patriot act should be given the option of treatment under the French codes.
