Washington Post Columnist Explains "Why Immunity Matters"

In today's Washington Post, Dan Froomkin's column examines the Bush Administration's "three-part argument for immunity, based on concerns about fairness, secrecy and future cooperation." As Froomkin notes, "all three parts of this argument are flawed," and rightly concludes that "none of these points argue for retroactive immunity." The column is a great addition to Dan Eggen and Ellen Nakashima's article in the Sunday Washington Post, which provides important background on the litigation and immunity debate.

Phone or email your Representative today -- urge them to oppose retroactive immunity.
