I am surprised this has not been posted yet. I believe those who keep current on political news, will have read it. On Friday, the House passed the new FISA bill, by a nauseating 293-129 margin. Obviously, a large group of spineless democrats (105) voted with the republicans. My district representative (Reichert) is a republican, and a total loser, even by their standards. So, it is no mystery how he voted. But, I am disappointed that ~1/3 of our State's delegation crossed over. And yes, retroactivity for the telecoms was left in the bill. By this careless act, the odds are slim, we shall ever learn the scope and level of law breaking by the Bush administration and the telecoms. This would have surely come out, if the telecoms had to defend themselves in court. If you want to see how your State's delegation voted, click this link.
