In Passing

But politics is *important*...

Arlen Specter and Joe Lieberman are worried about terrorist-connected individuals using foreign libel laws to stifle free speech:

Individuals with alleged connections to terrorist activity are filing libel suits and winning judgments in foreign courts against American researchers who publish on these matters. These suits intimidate and even silence writers and publishers.
They want to pass a law to protect American writers from foreign judgments that don’t square with the First Amendment.  Bravo.

Too bad the Senators weren’t equally interested in protecting Americans from the free speech restrictions of Campaign Finance “Reform.”
