Also, at the same time, he endorsed this proposal:

President Bush supports extending the duration of electronic 
surveillance in cases involving agents of foreign powers who are not 
U.S. persons.

The President should seek to have the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance 
Act (FISA) amended to extend the duration of electronic surveillance and 
"pen registers" in cases involving agents of foreign powers who are not 
U.S. persons.
Extending the duration of FISA orders for non-U.S. person agents of 
foreign powers will result in a substantial savings of resources and 
permit the Department of Justice (DOJ) to focus more time and attention 
on other FISA matters where U.S. persons are involved. DOJ has already 
proposed legislation that would extend the duration not only for 
electronic surveillance and pen register orders, but also physical 
search orders in cases involving agents of foreign powers who are not 
U.S. persons. This proposed legislation has been shared with appropriate 
Committees of the House and Senate.
