Slashdot | New FISA Bill Would Grant Telcoms Immunity; Vote Is Tomorrow
“This just in: a new ‘compromise’ FISA Bill PDF was just made public, which, the Electronic Frontier Foundation reports, ‘contains blanket immunity for telecoms that helped the NSA break the law and spy on millions of ordinary Americans.’ The House vote is tomorrow, June 20. After all the secret rooms and everything … if they get immunity and the public never finds out what happened, the only other logical next step is to convince everyone I know not to get an iPhone.”
It’ll be interesting to see how McCain and Obama vote. Oh, and if you believe in justice and/or freedom, it might be a good idea to pester your congressman.
