Here’s A Question…

A revealing exchange from yesterday’s online chat with The All-Seeing Eye Of Froomkin:

Los Angeles: If — as Bush claims — the telecoms will shell out “billions of dollars,” won’t it be only because the courts have found that they are liable for illegal actions?

Dan Froomkin: That’s a very good point. It’s one thing to say they’ll be out some considerable legal costs — but presumably, they’d only be out billions if they lost. Thanks.

Kinda sounds like maybe Dubya knows the telecoms broke the law, doesn’t it?

    If one retro-actively decriminalizes some act, then would not the criminal responsibility for sponsoring or for commanding the commission of that hitherto criminal act disappear, too, innitt?

    Well, yeah. The immunity is for the protection of Dubya and his minions just as much as for the telecoms. Maybe even more.
