Senator Chris Dodd gave a speech on the Senate floor yesterday, speaking out against the retroactive immunity for laws broken by telecommunications companies over approximately the last 8 years or so.  We do not know how long the illegal spying has taken place – the CEO for Qwest testified in court that the Bush administration asked him to illegally spy on American citizens BEFORE the 9/11 attacks.

The Dodd video and transcript can be seen here.

It is not too late to fight this unconstitutional Bill that underlies the disturbing trend of the government working for big business, rather than the people.
