New York Times Misleads on NSA Story

I try not to just regurgitate my favorite blogs, but this bears attention. The New York Times' most recent story on the NSA wiretaps' legality just doesn't jibe with the transcript. Verdict: The New York Times Blew the Story. And further analysis in Take 2:

In short, I don't think that the judges can fairly be described as having voiced skepticism regarding the president's constitutional authority to order the NSA surveillance program. Having reviewed the transcript of their testimony, however, I am voicing skepticism that Eric Lichtlbau and the New York Times are reporting on matters related to the NSA program in good faith.

Lots of gory detail to wade through, yes. Follow the links to your mind's satisfaction--it's all there.

Ah yes...the wiretaps.

Off topic, admittedly, but I'm curious about your thoughts regarding the "new" Downing memo.

Also off topic, but hey this is fun...


Another good story...

*ducks for cover*

Interesting stories, both.

Not sure quite what to make of the non-law law. Let's see what the court says. Maybe Dennis Haster will get censured. I don't think it's the end of the republic.

The Downing Street Memos might not be a good analogy.
