ABSTRACT
The article presents a debate on the question of prohibition of U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation from acquiring patron's records under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Howard Coble, Republican from North Carolina asked that should terrorists be able to use taxpayer-funded public library facilities to plot a major attack without fear they will be investigated by the FBI? On September 18 of last year, the number of times to date that the Justice Department had utilized Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act relating to the production of business records was declassified, and at that time it was made known that the number of times Section 215 had been used as of that date was zero.
