      As Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords fights the “battle of her life”, the local law enforcement has confirmed that the Congresswoman was the target of suspect Jared Lee Loughner. The Congresswoman’s aide for Public Outreach, Gabe Zimmerman is among the dead. Federal Judge John Roll had just attended daily Mass at the Cathedral nearby, and knowing Rep. Giffords, walked through the parking lot to see her. He too, is among those killed. A neighbor of 9 year old Christine Taylor Green thought she might enjoy going to the shopping center and seeing our “government at work”, invited the child to join them.

As far back as a 2006 speech, Mueller had called for data retention on the part of Internet providers, and emphasized the point two years later when explicitly asking Congress to enact a law making it mandatory.
