You got that? The telecom companies are being sued "because they are believed to have helped America." Well, that's just crazy! They "may have helped save American lives!"
It's not particularly relevant that they indisputably broke the law, because they were asked to break the law by The Leader. Since He asked them to break the law, and he is The Law, the law they broke was not really The Law in the first place, anyway, QED.
I'm going to be sick. If you vote for politicians who don't often and loudly decry this man and his insane, terrifying rule, you are, in my judgment, a very, very bad person.
