The poor phone companies didn't do anything wrong, and if they did, we want to be sure they didn't do anything wrong

Firedoglake suggests that the Senate has drawn up a bill which meets the President's requirement of providing ex post facto immunity from lawsuits for eavesdropping on US citizens.

The FISA bill, which Bush is calling the Protect America Act, seemed legitimate when there were the checks and balances of court approval before wiretapping.

Giving this president, and every president after, the ability to eavesdrop on you and me, okay, mostly me, is absurd to the point of ominous. What are our Senators thinking, and why are they conspiring to subvert the Constitution with our demented President.
