The Senate overwhelmingly approved a new federal wiretapping law this afternoon by a vote of 69-28.Oh, sorry, the terrorists have already won!
After last month's approval of a similar measure in the House, today's vote essentially clears the way for the bill to go to the White House for a final signature.
The bill approved includes sweeping and retroactive immunity for telecom companies that provided information about customers to government officials without a warrant as part of the Bush Administration's surveillance program imposed after September 11, 2001.
