At The Corner, the always perceptive Andy McCarthy makes a great point: John McCain ought to be out fron fighting for immunity for the telephone companies who may have helped the federal electronic surveillance program. I wrote about the telecom immunity issue today at the Washington Examiner. (Andy graciously helped walk me through the issue as part of my research.) The bottom line: Lives hang in the balance. If the immunity is not granted, our ability to track and block the actions of vicious terrorists will be hobbled. The results could be disastrous. McCain, meanwhile, enjoys (an only partially deserved) moral authority on such issues. He needs to step up to the plate. This is important.
