Because freedom can't protect itself
If Senator Specter believes in the law then he must equally believe that people who violate the law must be held accountable for the law to have any meaning. The telcos that were complicit with the NSA's illegal wiretapping "requests" must face prosecution: not all telcos requested to break the law for the NSA did so, and their reward should be to see that the telcos that did break the law face justice for their unlawful behavior.
Moreover it is a process DUE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. The granting of immunity itself is an act of complicity.
YOU PEOPLE ARE SICK!!! YOU BELIEVE IN KILLING POOR INNOCENT BABIES!!! DIDN'T YOU LIBERALS "PROTEST" AGAINST THAT IN VIETNAM? BUT IT'S OKAY TO KILL AMERICAN BABIES? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? I DON'T HATE YOU OR JUDGE YOU. THAT IS GODS JOB TO JUDGE YOU. I PRAY FOR YOU. YOU PREACH AGAINST CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR PEOPLE WHO VICTIMIZE OTHERS BUT YET IT'S OKAY TO MURDER AN UNBORN CHILD? DON'T YOU THINK YOU'RE PRIORITIES ARE A LITTLE BACKWARDS? INMATES WHO KILL OTHER PEOPLE SHOULD BE PUNISHED. YOU NEED TO GET YOUR HEAD STRAIGHT!!!
Arlen Specter has a spasm of rational talk. I'll bet you there is no walk...
Here in PA, we learned long ago not to trust ol' Arlen to do right by the Constitution.
If you have something to hide, don't say it on your cellphone.
This is basically light weight shocking
that is so crazy
