Quick! Stop the Presses! Here’s tomorow’s headline. Video Shows Chief Executive Believed the Levees Were Intact. Wait…what? The Chief Executive was Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco and not President Bush? Oh, well, never mind then. No, really. Never mind.

I’m not entirely sure where I fall on the issue, though Jonah Goldberg sums up the kerfuffle pretty well: The Department of Justice is in a lawsuit with the ACLU […]

One thing I’ve yet to hear in all the discussion about Senator Clinton’s “plantation” speech is that it was a partisan political speech made in a church.

Excuse me, but what? WASHINGTON – Congressional intelligence committees had at least a hint in October 2001 that the National Security Agency was expanding its surveillance activities after the 9/11 attacks, according to a letter released Tuesday by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

First, is a Dana Priest article that outlines yet another covert CIA program the administration has been using to find and kill terrorists.
