Surveillance We Shouldn't Live With

When Specter introduced his dangerous surveillance bill, the Washington Post slammed it in an editorial. After giving Specter space to defend the bill, WaPo remains unconvinced:

"In an op-ed in these pages Monday, Mr. Specter described his proposal as a compromise with President Bush to ensure judicial review of the NSA program, which he called 'a festering sore on our body politic.' Yet his legislation would essentially respond to this festering sore by shooting the patient."

Read the whole WaPo editorial here, and take action now to stop the surveillance bills.
