Like I Said

This is all about staying out of jail for breaking the law.

Laura Rozen at War and Piece has the official “excuse” for this law, Statement from the Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell:

The second item is the real reason –

Second, those who assist the Government in protecting us from harm must be protected from liability. This includes those who are alleged to have assisted the Government after September 11, 2001 and have helped keep the country safe. I understand the leadership in Congress is not able to address before the August recess the issue of liability protection for those who are alleged to have helped the country stay safe after September 11, 2001. However, I appreciate the commitment of the congressional leadership to address this particular issue immediately upon the return of Congress in September 2007.
