Rockefeller Gives It Another Shot

11 May 2008

It looks like several telecommunications companies have a part in writing a law to grant themselves immunity. Sen. Rockefeller (D-WV), who has received plenty of money from the telecommunications industry, is once again complying. As former constitutional litigator Glenn Greenwald observes, "Their strategy is to craft a bill that they can pretend is something short of amnesty for telecoms but which, in every meaningful respect, ensures an end to the telecom lawsuits." If nothing else, Rockefeller is persistent in his attempts to grant amnesty to those who knowingly violated our surveillance laws.
