FISA debate coverage

For those of you *trying* to follow the debate raging in D.C. about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the extension of the “Protect America Act of 2007”, please go on over to EmptyWheel and Crooks and Liars. Both have extensive coverage about it — with video! — and can help to wrap your heads around telco amnesty, basket warrants or reverse targeting, sequestration of illegally harvested evidence and other arcane but vitally important issues that can make or break the future of civil rights in the US.
