Who'da Thought It?

Fascinating tale told by former Undersecretary of Justice James Comey of a Tom Clancy-esque (or Mario Puzo?) drama to renew authority for the then-still-secret domestic wiretap program.

My biggest takeaways:

  • Who knew John Ashcroft could take a principled stand?

  • Is it only irony that Alberto Gonzalez, who tried to end-run authorization, replaced Ashcroft?
