i'm comforted

From Walter Pincus: The Bush administration plans to leave oversight of its expanded foreign eavesdropping program to the same government officials who supervise the surveillance activities and to the intelligence personnel who carry them out, senior government officials said yesterday.

Oh, I'm comforted. The Bush Administration has been so scrupulous in making sure it has full accountability for how it runs its programs, especially things related to intelligence and torture I mean interrogations, how can anybody possibly doubt that extending the right-wing concept of voluntary self-enforcement (their preferred approach to regulating the private sector, when the private sector is willing) to the government could possibly be a problem?
