Telecom Immunity

What would you say if the NSA came to you and said, "We want you to spy on your neighbors for us. Send us a transcript of everything they say." You say, "isn't that illegal?" They say, "congress is working on a bill that will make it legal in 2-3 years. Don't worry about it, we'll grant you retroactive immunity for spying on your neighbors."

What would you say if the NSA said your neighbor was a terrorist, and that they need you to assassinate him. "If we killed him it would be too high-profile. We need you to do it for us." You say, "isn't that illegal?" They say, "congress is working on a bill that will make it legal in 2-3 years. Don't worry about it, we'll grant you retroactive immunity for assassinating terrorists."

Is that too much of a stretch?

Just because the government asks you to do something doesn't make it right, or even legal.

Take Action!
