After many attempts to block or delay the release of info on who lobbied the federal government last year for telco immunity in lawsuits involving the fed's warrantless wiretapping program, the government has finally agreed to hand over some of the information requested. Of course, since the administration had already won a longer delay, and only some of the info is being revealed, I'm guessing that there isn't much surprising in what's being released -- though it makes you wonder why the administration went to such lengths to hide it.
