The Final Nail in the Coffin


I will not review all the emotional ups and down that we have gone through concerning the Foreign Intelligent Security Act (FISA) in the last several years. Glenn Greenwald has done a superb job of documenting the capitulation of the American Congress to the imperial presidency. Today is truly a sad day for the rule of law. But then, we knew that.

More terrifying to me is that this may inaugurate a witch hunt for those that rightly shed the light of day on Bush's illegal activity. So, not only will the bloated telecoms get immunity, good men may go down.

Those we entrusted with our votes to preserve the Constitution have killed it.
