Democrats Reject Telecom Immunity Ahead of Vote

Truthout reporters Christopher Kuttruff and Simona Perry report: "On Thursday night, the House held the first closed session meeting in 25 years in order to debate retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies who assisted the Bush administration in its warrantless surveillance program. The session, requested by House minority whip Roy Blunt (R-Missouri), pushed back an upcoming vote (H.R. 3773) on updating the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to today."

House Passes FISA Bill Without Immunity

Thomas Ferraro reports for Reuters that the Democratic-led US House of Representatives has passed a bill that permits lawsuits against telecommunications companies. Bush has vowed to veto the bill if it reaches his desk because it does not give immunity to companies that may have helped the government unlawfully spy on American phone calls and e-mails.
