Oh my. I read today that the Justice Department dropped its investigation into the NSA's domestic surveillance program because a NSA lawyer says that Justice Department lawyers don't have the necessary clearances to do an investigation.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Not so fast. Back up, and re-read that sentence. And then read it, again.
Translation: A secret government agency has told OUR Justice Department that it's not allowed to investigate it.
My bad. I need to stop analyzing utilization charts and start parsing Lewis Carroll so I can relish the irony of all this.
"I know what you're thinking about," said Tweedledum: "But it isn't so, no-how."
"Contrariwise," continued Tweedledum, "if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic."
Lewis Carroll, "Through the Looking Glass"
My advice: "Go ask Alice, I think she'll know...."
Better yet, go ask Qwest.
