House Dems Cave in on FISA

 

CommonDreams.org has a description of what happened to another chunk of our civil liberties by Glen Greenwald.  Read the entire article.  This says it all:

The most succinct summary of what the Democrats just “negotiated” came from Russ Feingold: “The proposed FISA deal is not a compromise; it is a capitulation.” Numerous other Democratic office-holders and Congressional candidates scornfully characterized this bill for what it is, including Andrea Miller, a Democratic nominee for Congress in Virginia, who said: “We have a Democratic majority in the House and yet they seem to be as confused by the meaning of the Constitution as the Republicans.” 

I’m very disappointed to see Reps. Gillibrand and Arcuri, both Dems from New York, voting for this travesty and barking like “Blue Dogs” .
