Submitted by

Bimo_Dude writes "Today (June 20), Steny Hoyer in bringing to the house floor the latest FISA bill (PDF), which includes retroactive immunity for the telcos. The bill also is very weak on judicial review, allowing the telcos to use a letter from the president as a "get out of liability free" card. Here are comments from the ACLU and the EFF.FTA:

"The agreement extends the government's ability to eavesdrop on espionage and terrorism suspects while effectively providing a legal escape hatch for AT&T, Verizon Communications and other telecom firms. They face more than 40 lawsuits that allege they violated customers' privacy rights by helping the government conduct a warrantless spying program after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.""

I have never seen anything fill up a vacuum so fast and still suck. -- Rob Pike, on X.
