Dubya may have some 'splainin' to do

NBC - curiouser and curiouser, amongst other posts across the blogosphere are discussing the possibility and implications of a possibly breaking news story from NBC (that may have been prematurely blurted out yesterday by Andrea Mitchell) that the administration, in one of its warrantless NSA taps, has been spying on (or shall we say through?) CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour.

It certainly fits as an explanation as to why the administration would not seek a FISA warrant (they would never have gotten one), and why they never asked Congress for changes in the FISA law (which an administration official admitted that they would not likely have gotten).

If true, then the war criminals in the west wing have some serious 'splainin' to do, and the press will not let this go for a moment.

Even William Safire, one of the administrations loudest and proudest cheerleaders, has problems with this.

This issue will not likely go away, not if the press thinks that they've been spied upon illegally by the administration. Even the most conservative press outlets like WSJ and the Moonie Times will find that just a little over the edge.
