Obama on FISA

"Given the grave threats that we face, our national security agencies
must have the capability to gather intelligence and track down
terrorists before they strike, while respecting the rule of law and the
privacy and civil liberties of the American people. There is also
little doubt that the Bush Administration, with the cooperation of
major telecommunications companies, has abused that authority and
undermined the Constitution by intercepting the communications of
innocent Americans without their knowledge or the required court
orders.

"That is why last year I opposed the so-called Protect America Act,
which expanded the surveillance powers of the government without
sufficient independent oversight to protect the privacy and civil
liberties of innocent Americans. I have also opposed the granting of
retroactive immunity to those who were allegedly complicit in acts of
illegal spying in the past.

Read it all over at Talking Points memo,,it seems these days that the government is moving as much as it can to disreguard the liberties of its citizens the world we live in today is constantly changing as most have read the violence in Afghanistan is heating up again and the terrorists are getting more brazen in their attacks on our troops, so this in itself changes the way we conduct survielence.

    Repeal FISA is up and running. Anyone who wants to is welcome to sign up and become a Poster on it. The purpose of the blog is to organize a drive to repeal the FISA laws and all laws that pardon or give immunity from prosecution anyone who has violated the Constitution during the Bush Administration.

    That is why we want everyone to be able to Post so they can start a conversation about an idea they have to make this happen.

    Stop on by and check it out. By all means leave a comment and sign up to blog with us as we figure out what needs to be done to return our Fourth Amendment Rights and our rule of law.

    If you have a blog already and you become a poster we will link to your site.
