Baba Mourns Patriot Act Defeat

Puttaparthi, South India.

Sai Baba today mourned the defeat of the Patriot Act, after the US Congress has voted to trim an extension of the anti-terror law down to a month.

The move is a rebuff to President George W Bush who wanted the legislation extended indefinitely. The Patriot Act, introduced after the 11 September attacks, gives the US government extra powers to monitor terrorism suspects and their finances.

"Even though I constantly say that terrorism is only due to the jealousy tendencies in man, I could have willed Manmohan Singh to pass a similar law here in India so that I could keep an eye on my enemies like Premanand and Edamuruku," the Baba said while weeping.
