Bond Pens Op-Ed in USAToday on FISA

With passage of the new FISA bill by the U.S. House, the vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is urging his Senate colleagues to do the same.

"The agreement also gives vital civil liability protection to companies that answered the call of duty after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Without such protection, it is likely our private partners will refuse to cooperate with future requests for assistance. This is a risk our nation cannot accept. Unfortunately, Sen. Barack Obama has indicated he will support an amendment to strike these liability protections. The Senate has already rejected a similar amendment and should do so again," writes Sen. Kit Bond.
