Olbermann grasps at FISA straws to defend Obama

Keith Olbermann says there’s still a raw of hope in the House’s FISA bill because the immunity clause is for civil cases only, not criminal charges.

So, tell me, Keith, have you heard Obama pledge that he will appoint an attorney general who will root out criminality in illegal, warrantless wiretapping?

Didn’t think so.


Oh, and listen to Greenwald on this issue.
“In general, Olbermann’s commentary about Obama’s FISA position was much more critical, in both senses of the word. Still, there are numerous, glaring flaws with the fantasy that Obama will criminally prosecute telecoms.”

Besides, Bmaz notes an elementary point that unconstitutional doesn’t necessarily mean illegal.
