Klein to testify against telco immunity

Former AT&T technician Mark Klein, credited as the whistleblower for the role telcos played in the federal government's domestic eavesdropping scandal, is in Washington, D.C., this week to testify before members of Congress as the Senate Judiciary Committee considers whether or not to include blanket telco immunity in new surveillance legislation.

Whatever your feelings about telco immunity, Klein should be looked on as a hero for helping to bring the scandal to public attention so that it could no longer continue behind closed doors. The Judiciary Committee potentially could make a decision about telco immunity this week, so stay tuned.
