FISA Bill-Speech by Senator Christopher Dodd

If you haven't been paying attention, the House and Senate are on the verge of passing a bill that provides the Executive the ability to run warrentless wiretaps(circumventing the FISA court and it's retroactive warrant system, it seems) and provides retroactive immunity for the telecom industry's shannegans. This is an industry that cooperated with the Bush Administration in the current, illegal round of warrantless wiretaps.

Here is his speech. Contact your Senator to prevent a closure vote(a vote for closure will end his filibuster).
