At about 1am on Saturday morning, the Senate was set to pass a temporary extension of the NSA’s data collection program, when Rand Paul stood up and said no, it wasn’t going to happen. Senators must now return May 31 to try again. Meanwhile, for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, his slim majority is showing signs of strain as Dems use obstruction tactics that the GOP once used against them. And let’s remember several presidential candidates looking to make points, as well as that conservative wing of his party that beats to its own drum. McConnell has his hands full, and the question is whether what is happening to the NSA bill is just a momentary glitch, or a sign that tough times have arrived and are here to stay.

The Obama administration is finding itself on the defensive regarding its ISIS strategy, as the terror group has made recent significant gains in both Iraq and Syria. On Sunday, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter went as far as blaming the Iraqi troops for the loss of Ramadi. Meanwhile the president continues to reiterate that there are no plans to send American ground troops to work alongside Iraqis on the front lines, though more hawkish types on Congress continue to insist that there is no other option to turn things around

The White House and House leaders urged the Senate on Thursday to take up a bill that would end the National Security Agency’s collection of American phone records while preserving other surveillance powers set to expire June 1. Senators are divided with that deadline nearing for the continued use of counterterrorism provisions that law enforcement officials say are critical. It’s all a bit of a complicated play at this point, and Mary discusses how leaders are hoping or not hoping things work out.
