    Leahy wants report

    on surveillance

    MONTPELIER Vermont U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy is leading an effort to call for a full-scale review with results made public of the use of surveillance by the U.S. intelligence community.

    Leahy joined senators from both parties Monday in signing a letter to Charles McCullough, inspector general of the intelligence community.

    The senators are asking for detailed information on the surveillance of Americans under federal law and any misuse of such authority during the last three years.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee which Leahy chairs held a hearing on the topics in July and is planning another one next week.
