The Portland City Council votes 5 - 0 to re-join the Joint Terrorism Task Force. Councilor Randy Leonard insisting the agreement protects civil liberties and disallows giving the feds control of local police officers assigned to the JTTF. He says it must confirm with Oregon law, which is more restrictive than Federal law. The City reconsidered joining the JTTF following an alleged holiday bomb threat last November.
