Submission House Gives Telcos Immunity, Extends Wiretap Laws-> 1

mrogers writes: "Wired's Threat Level blog and the International Herald Tribune are reporting that a bill granting immunity to telcos accused of facilitating illegal warrantless wiretaps, and extending the government's powers to conduct surveillance without judicial oversight, has passed the House of Representatives by 293 votes to 129. Only one Republican voted against the bill; Democrats were evenly split. The warrantless wiretapping program was first revealed by AT&T whistleblower Mark Klein."
