A provision in the FISA bill that effectively extends retroactive immunity to telecommunication companies that acceded to the Bush administration\\\\




Nancy Pelosi told reporters this morning that it would be \\\"healthy and wholesome\\\" for Senate Democrats to force an extended debate over the compromise legislation on domestic surveillance, even if there is little chance that they can prevent its passage.

A provision in the FISA bill that effectively extends retroactive immunity to telecommunication companies that acceded to the Bush administration\\\'s requests for warrantless surveillance of American citizens is particularly controversial.

The House passed the legislation last week. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is moving toward a Senate vote tomorrow.

Whichever way they spin it, the bottom line is that they knowingly acted illegally. Changing the law retrospectively does not somehow absolve the telecoms companies, or the government, from breaking the law.
