Senator Reid

13Feb08

Senator Reid,

I am deeply distressed and upset by today’s FISA amendment vote. Your complete and utter failure to hold the Bush administration accountable for illegally spying on American citizens has jeopardized the very freedom from tyranny for which every one of our forefathers set out from distant shores and every single one of our military service members have since fought and died. You sir, had a chance to make a claim for joining the pantheon of Profiles in Courage for speaking truth to ill-gotten power and making a stand against fear and injustice, but instead, you have forever sealed your fate, not just as an ineffective accomplice to, but as an active enabler of this Presidency’s litany of illegal actions against its citizens. You have betrayed the trust of your constituency, forsaken the responsibilities of your office, and assaulted the spirit and letter of our nation’s Constitution.
