FISA and Telecom Immunity Coming Up For a Vote

So I write letters to our Senators Durbin and Obama:

Please, Please, Please!

Do not grant telecom immunity.

The telecoms at the behest of our imperial president have broken the law with illegal searches.

If telecom immunity is granted, we will never know the extent of their criminal activity.

So please, do everything in your power to see that this immunity is not granted.


A Strict Constitutionalist Citizen of the USA

FISA as is already grants the right to immediate searches as long a warrant is secured after the fact from a secret FISA court, something that was not done by Bush and the telecoms. (I think it allows for FISA court review and warrants secured up to 90 or 120 days after the search. I find that practical, if a tad invasive.)

I do not relish opening every phone conversation with: "OK George, can you hear me now?"

So I write letters...

I urge you do the same.

Durbin can be contacted here, Obama here.
