Senator Dodd’s FISA Floor Speech

The issue at hand was giving retroactive immunity to the telecommunication companies for breaking the FISA law.

He favored the approach supported by Dick Cheney rather than the other version put together by Democratic Senator Pat Leahy. Why he did that is an open question, to say the least.
