Our Kansas Roots effort last week was a real success. We managed to get lots of letters about the illegal NSA wiretaps published in local Kansas papers where the Chairman of the Senate Initelligence Committee Pat Roberts no doubt felt their heat, and now we're asking everyone to do the same thing for Chuck Hagel in Nebraska and Olympia Snowe in Maine who are also on the committee.

FDL has a post about today's action.

Glenn Greenwald has a talking points refresher.

Information on calling Snowe's office is here.

Information on calling Hagel's office is here. Information on writing to Maine newspapers is here. Information on writing to Nebraska newspapers is here.

The Senate Intelligence Committee will be taking a vote on March 7 to decide whether they will investigate the illegal NSA wiretaps or not. Everyone who is concerned about this matter should take some action today in order to have an impact this very important upcoming vote.
