Olbermann had another one of this special comments for George Bush and his threat to veto a FISA bill that does not include immunity for the telecoms – from Rawstory

Using fear to to bully the US people for laws which strip them of their own rights is both fascist and criminal.

That the President was willing to veto this eavesdropping, means there is no threat to the legitimate counter-terror efforts underway.

As Senator Kennedy reminded us in December:

“The President has said that American lives will be sacrificed if Congress does not change FISA. But he has also said that he will veto any FISA bill that does not grant retroactive immunity.

No immunity, no FISA bill. So if we take the President at his word, he’s willing to let Americans die to protect the phone companies.”
