We write letters

Breaking news reports indicate that the House Democratic leadership is preparing to cave, and support a FISA bill which provides retroactive immunity to telecoms which violated longstanding US law and spied on American citizens at the behest of the Bush administration.

My letter to Representative David Price (NC-04):
I am appalled at news reports that the House Democratic leadership is going to bring to the floor a bill providing immunity from lawsuits to the telecommunications industry from their unlawful spying on American citizens at the request of the Bush administration.

There is simply no reason to supply this immunity to companies which knew their actions were illegal. I trust that you will be voting against this measure, and I sincerely hope that you will communicate to the Democratic Party leadership the absolute disgust which many Americans will feel toward them should they pass this repulsive legislation.

If you live in the 4th District, Representative Price's contact page is here. Outside the 4th district? Find your congresscritter here.

UPDATE: Glenn Greenwald is a lot smarter than me. He explains why this is so wrong.
