Sneaky TIMES-ing

The first thing that came to mind the day of the vote to renew the Patriot Act for me was "Why did the Times choose to publish this wiretap story today?" Like most of us in the blogging world I smelled a rat.

Now we find they have been sitting on it since before the election in 2004? There is a big backstory to this story here. I wish we knew all of it.
