Foreign Inteligence Surveillance Act



Since the articles on this multi-blog page move down, keep scrolling until you reacd PELOSI RUNS OUT THE CLOCK ON FISA

During the Clinton administration, intelligence gathering was not adequate, and this weakness contributed to the September 11 attack. Since then, laws authorizing stronger measures have been enacted. The Speaker of the House will not allow the House of Representatives to vote to extend a version of the laws. The particular issue: the law provides legal protection for phone companies that cooperate with US authorities, so they cannot be sued for such cooperation.

Most congressman are expected to vote to pass the bill. But they can't do so, if they are not allowed to vote on it.

Trial lawyers involved in the lawsuits are reportedly contributing money to the campaigns of those they hope will vote against it.

Surely there's a conflict of interest here?

The US Government and ' intelligence ' ?

It's never going to happen, is it?
