misplaced investigation underway

This story is a nice, short summary of the de facto Bush Administration's attitude. Instead of investigating the crime -- NSA domestic surveillance done without warrants in direct contravention of law passed by Congress in 1978 -- the Department of Justice and Not-Torture is investigating the leak. You know, because they gotta protect classified information.

If done with the permission of the Cheney/Bush junta, it's not a crime. If done contrary to their wishes, it is. Gosh, and to think this used to be a country which boasted of enjoying the rule of law.

Be nice to have an investigation into the NSA program rather than the "leak" (whistleblow is a better word, as in revealing a crime). Surely SOMEBODY at the NSA got a blow job some time?
