Recall that James Comey _testified last year_ 
(http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2007/05/16/nsa_comey/)  that what he and other DOJ  officials learned 
in 2004 about Bush's spying activities for the several years  prior was so 
extreme, so unconscionable, so patently illegal that they all --  including even 
John Ashcroft -- threatened to resign en masse unless it  stopped 
immediately. We still have no idea what those spying activities  were. We know, though, 
that even the right-wing DOJ ideologues who approved  of the illegal "Terrorist 
Surveillance Programs"

that we know about  found those activities indisputably illegal and wrong. 
But Barack Obama and the  Democratic-led Congress will today enact a bill to 
immunize all of that, to  protect the lawbreakers who were responsible.
