Watching the Watchers

Bush has announced his new spokesman, and I for one am happy about the choice. Snow is a conservative, and experienced enough to know how to hold his own against the hostile press corp. Whether that is good or bad for the people's knowledge remains to be seen.

Over in Iraq, there is interest in banning armed militias. The U.S. military believes that the country is not descending into civil war. And in the region certain fanatic factions don't want to be associated with other fanatic factions.

Here at home the DOJ wants to slap the secret label on domestic wiretapping programs and close down a lawsuit seeking to prevent it.
