Watching the Watchers

Thank goodness the Democrats are in power again and all the shady government dealings can stop. Right.

Meanwhile the military has revoked the limit on cumulative active duty time for reservists. Single mobilization limits remain at two years, though the Pentagon says they intend to keep deployments down in the one year range.

And in a really scary breach of the commonly considered limits of two government organizations, the Pentagon and the CIA are both apparently gathering credit records on Americans. It has been know that the FBI was doing it, but it's the FBI's job, not the military or foreign intelligence services'.

Meanwhile, up on The Hill, big music's piracy straw man continues to drive legislative debate. They won't rest until they can charge you every time you hear a song.
