FISA bill in 30 seconds

This is why I spent some time yesterday calling the offices of various Senators. Okay, okay, when i was doing so, it was all about the retroactive immunity for telephone companies. Here, make it legal that if they broke the law by spying on people, they got outta jail free!

But this FISA bill in 30 seconds explanation, courtesy of Russ Feingold, is chilling.

    What’s sad about this is the “terrorists” or whoever is the bad guy of the moment will be using PGP encryption for their emails, or an alternate secure channel. The only people who will be spied upon are the American public and the occasional stupid criminal.
