Senator Leahy and Dodd to filibuster against FISA

Tuesday, the Senate will be voting on amendments to FISA. Amendments, if passed, will give blanket immunity to telecom companies for violating our civil liberties. Leahy and Dodd will filibuster to make sure our civil liberties are not trampled on. It’s all about illegal domestic spying. The government spying on it’s own American Citizens (that includes you!). I’m not against wiretaps, I’m against it when there’s no reason for it. And the current administration says, they don’t need a reason. They don’t need to check with the FISA court, and they don’t need to show them why they need to snoop. See the statement from Senator Dodd on FISA and Telecom Immunity
