Olbermann Scolds Obama Over FISA, but Offers the Senator Ways to Redeem Himself

Olbermann criticizes Obama for supporting the FISA bill regardless of the telecom immunity provision. But Olbermann also explains different ways how Obama can redeem himself; one of which would be a pledge, if elected president, to have his attorney general conduct a full scale criminal investigation of the telecom companies and former Bush administration officials for their acts of illegal domestic spying.
