Reid about to sell out on FISA

By Libby

Glenn Greenwald is raising the alarm and FDL has the phone numbers but for those unversed in legalese or who like me, get dizzy trying to follow the procedural sleight of hand, I thought Booman had the most understandable explanation for the cheap trick Reid is about to pull on the FISA bill.

Bottom line. Reid is about to try to pull a fast one. Not only is he failing to honor Dodd's hold, he's setting up the vote on three competing bills to virtually assure that telecom immunity will be passed and he is planning to hide behind the usual mealymouthed excuse of the damned 60 vote threshold. Don't let him get away with it.

Better to call, but if you can't do that, please use his web form and let him know you won't be fooled again. I just sent a polite but blistering email myself, in addition to calling.
