    to Emptywheel's page, (blogger "bmaz") also explaining it. Here's a clip:

    It now appears quite clear that either the House will vote on the War Funding Supplemental and then go to the FISA Amendments ACT or, and it is not clear at this time what the odds on this are, link the two bills and vote on both at the same time. Here is what we do know. House has finalized their war supplemental bill, and it appears to be a go for a vote tomorrow (Thursday). So, the best evidence is that the vote on FISA will be on Friday June 20, and may be as early as Thursday night. There is precious little time left to make our voices heard.

      dday said "they are attaching one to the other". All I see in the links and analysis is that they are trying to ram the two bills through Rules at the same time. The two cases are not the same thing, and the means to fight back are not equal for both cases.
