We just can’t seem to keep the Democratic caucus in Congress from buckling again and again. The one bright spot in their record was their success blocking telcom immunity in a new FISA bill (PDF). Somehow, though, they think a compromise on this issue is necessary and a compromise that would again provide immunity to telecom companies that wiretap Americans for the government without a court order is now to be voted on. Talk about grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory!
Please call Sen. Obama and ask him to provide some leadership in the Senate opposing this new FISA bill: 202-224-2854. Contact your own representatives in Congress and ask them to stop this madness.
