Time's Blog of the Year suffers another setback

Those following the NSA scandal in the States (basically, Bush authorised an illegal spying operation on US citizens) might like to read Glenn Greenwald's latest take on Powerline's scrambling to defend breaking the law.

Unlike Althouse - who is being rather shrill these days in refusing to engage with it at all - it seems Greenwald's not willing to let partisan politics get in the way of a principled stand. Would that there were more so-called 'libertarians' doing the same!

"Libel"-Richard Waghorne
"Attack blog"-Damien Mulley

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.

    (This blog and its contents reflect only my own personal opinions as a private citizen, and not those of any other person or organisation.)
