Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

In the classic political tactic of diversion, the U.S. Department of Justice today announced that they were forming a probe to investigate the alleged leak of information regarding the Bush administration's executive order authorizing domestic wiretaps without a court order.

With most of the nation expressing concern to outrage regarding what appears to be illegal wiretaps by the Bush adminstration, the DoJ is choosing not to investigate or even defend said wiretaps. Instead, it is going on a witch hunt after the whistleblower who let the black cat out of the bag.

Even the ancient Romans knew that the most dangerous hole in a society based upon the rule of law is with the very enforcers of that law. As the title above says, Who Watches the Watchers?

I am never suprised any longer by the bullshit going on in this BB (Bush Bullshit) administration. Yes, let us all forget that King George has approved illegal wiretapping and go after THOSE that told. When are the people going to request the IMPEACHMENT of King George?
