AT&T Whistleblower on Immunity for Telecoms

Mark Klein, the AT&T technician who came to EFF with evidence of government spying, eloquently explained to PBS NOW this weekend why Congress should reject immunity for telecoms taking part in the spying. If you missed it, you can watch the show online. Fortunately, a majority of the House agrees with Mark Klein, passing a bill on Friday amending FISA without letting telecoms off the hook. The battle moves to the Senate when Congress comes back from recess in April.
