WASHINGTON — President Obama yesterday signed a three-month extension of the Patriot Act’s surveillance provisions.
One aspect of the 2001 law lets law enforcement set roving wiretaps to monitor multiple communication devices.
Another lets officials ask a special court for access to business and library records deemed relevant to a terrorist threat.
A third grants the FBI the right to keep tabs on non-Americans not known to be tied to specific terrorist groups.
