Chris Dodd has introduced an amendment to the FISA bill that would strip retroactive immunity from the current legislation. So far it has 9 co-sponsors (no, not Obama).
Sen Feingold, Russell D. [WI] – 6/26/2008

Sen Reid, Harry [NV] – 6/26/2008
Sen Harkin, Tom [IA] – 6/26/2008
Sen Boxer, Barbara [CA] – 6/26/2008
Sen Sanders, Bernard [VT] – 6/26/2008
Sen Wyden, Ron [OR] – 6/26/2008
Sen Kennedy, Edward M. [MA] – 6/26/2008
Sen Durbin, Richard [IL] – 6/26/2008
Senator Dodd has asked for citizens to stand with him in cosponsoring the bill. (He also gives you the opportunity to make a contribution, but I’m not quite ready to decide who, if anyone, is deserving of my cash.)
There is a whole lot more than retroactive immunity that is wrong with the FISA legislation, but I am supporting the senator’s effort.
