If we stick with it, the vote against telecom immunity will be a real win for transparency. I’m impressed at how well they’ve stood up…oh. Crap: House to Close Its Doors for Spying BillIt wasn’t clear what information would be presented in the closed session…[Senator] Whitehouse said the documents assert that the president has the power to determine what his constitutional powers are, particularly in a time of war.

Queue the 24 references, and the arm-twisting…*sigh* And, of course, after a secret House session, if you vote against this, you obviously want the terrorists to win.

My prediction…after this session, the bill (including telecom immunity provisions) passes. (Boy, do I hope I’m wrong, though). We are well and truly fucked.
