Warrantless Wiretaps Not Used, Official Says
[Mike McConnell, the director of national intelligence] also pushed for a provision that would grant legal immunity to the telecommunications companies that secretly cooperated with the N.S.A. on the warrantless program. Those companies, now facing lawsuits, have never been officially identified.

Democratic Congressional aides say they believe that a deal is likely to provide protection for the companies.

The administration broke the law, and the telco's were accessories. Why the *&^% should they get immunity?
