ACLU Challenges Unconstitutional Spying Law
What I ask you to remember is this...When Sen. Obama announced he would try to strip the immunity provision from the bill but would vote for it otherwise, he made a telling statement.

Now here come the folk that will make it go away.
Keep focused and keep fighting!
