I try to avoid writing about this stuff, but for the love of god

MYTH: The future security of our country does not depend on whether Congress provides liability protection for companies being sued for billions of dollars only because they are believed to have assisted the Government in defending America after the 9/11 attacks.

FACT: Without the retroactive liability protection provided in the bipartisan Senate bill, we may not be able to secure the private sector’s cooperation with current and future intelligence efforts critical to our national security.

So this parses roughly like

"If we don't place corporations above the law, they might not cooperate in future when we ask them to break the law."

Um, good?

In case you're wondering, this MYTH vs. FACT gem is part of an official press release from err... let's call it the Shite Mouse.
