"Obama's support for the FISA "compromise""
There are many important  lessons from yesterday's announcement that he now 
supports a warrantless  eavesdropping and telecom amnesty bill

What Barack Obama did here was wrong and destructive. He's supporting a  bill 
that is a full-scale assault on our Constitution and an endorsement of the  
premise that our laws can be broken by the political and corporate elite  
whenever the scary specter of The Terrorists can be invoked to justify it.  What's 
more, as a Constitutional Law Professor, he knows full well what a  radical 
perversion of our Constitution this bill is, and yet he's supporting it  anyway. 
Anyone who sugarcoats or justifies that is doing a real disservice to  their 
claimed political values and to the truth.

evil, but because of the people who don't do  anything about it." - Albert
