Heather Wilson Getting Praise From An Unlikely Source
I don't cover all news stories here, but I can't credibly ignore
this one.A House Republican whose subcommittee oversees the National Security Agency broke ranks with the White House on Tuesday and called for a full Congressional inquiry into the Bush administration's domestic eavesdropping program.
The lawmaker, Representative Heather A. Wilson of New Mexico, chairwoman of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Technical and Tactical Intelligence, said in an interview that she had "serious concerns" about the surveillance program. By withholding information about its operations from many lawmakers, she said, the administration has deepened her apprehension about whom the agency is monitoring and why.
She's getting praised for this in the worst places imaginable
I am not pleased with the call for an "inquiry"; we all know what a circus that would turn into.
On the other hand, House Majority Leader Boehner's on the same page
, so maybe there's reason to believe that the Republicans are confident the administration will come out well in any hearings.
