THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT: THE RIGHT AND WRONG OF IT

The Congress and the FISA court have both been kept informed of the activities, according to press reports, on a regular basis. This enables them to decide to weigh in on the matter and restrain the executive branch when they determine they need to - Sen. Jay "I don't know nuthin' 'bout writin' laws" Rockerfeller notwithstanding.

Secret from the public - of course. Secret from Congress and the courts - no, and not intended. One thing the executive branch has not done is to ask the court to rule on the authority. The courts can instruct the executive to bring the issue to them if they want to.

9/11: FROM NEWS, TO HISTORY, TO MYTH

Rick, I see what you're saying applies to not only the recent past, but often to the present and future: We frequently tell ourselves myths about what we are doing in the present and also about where we are going with what we are doing.

We're very much the idealists, not the pragmatists.

Good post!
