    This needs to stop- and Obama should now step up and condemn it, since he's already been elected.

    Only problem is, it will make him out to be a hypocrite, and lose credibility before he gets into office. When he gets in, one of the first things he should do is ask for revisions to FISA to strip out telco immunity. That way, he'll have the power to do so in the position. Plus we know that they blockbusted into signing this; the military wouldn't have been funded without the bill being passed, thanks to Bush (IIRC, he had them slip the funding for the troops into this bill, then played the 'not supporting the troops' card). With Bush out, now we can have accountability.

    I wonder if there is such a thing as 'retroactive accountability'..
