Carl Hulse writes in the NYT (2/21/12) …

  • Russ Feingold always went his own way in the Senate, much to the frequent aggravation of his Democratic colleagues.
  • But the Wisconsin Democrat was never more alone than on Oct. 11, 2001, when he was the sole opponent to the Patriot Act antiterror law pushed through on a 96-1 vote in the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks.
  • Mr. Feingold assembles a narrative of how the terrorist attacks, the deadly anthrax assault in the capital and the sniper killings in the Washington region created a climate of fear that ultimately led to the antiterrorism law, the war in Iraq and ugly political attacks.
