Senate protects spying!

Wow - just read this on the Nytimes today - the Senate passed a bill that grants full immunity from any lawsuit against a telecommunications company that aided the government in spying under Bush's unconstitutional wiretapping program.

Democrats and Republicans alike pushed versions of the bill forward to protect these huge corporations (such as AT&T) from any actual responsibility for their actions, which in one case involved allowing the NSA to directly tap their network backbones to filter and tap their traffic.
