Who could have guessed?

Gee, nobody could have predicted this I suppose:

The FBI improperly used national security letters in 2006 to obtain personal data on Americans during terror and spy investigations, Director Robert Mueller said Wednesday.

Admittedly, Mueller goes on to say that the reports were prior to new policies being put into place, but somehow that doesn’t make me feel much better.  It’s things like this that have always made me very nervous about partnerships between law enforcement and industry.  I’ll try to post something about InfraGard one of these days.  It’s a little scary in its own right.

    That kind of reminds me of when GWBush said that nobody could have predicted that the levees would break…

    I am such a cynic.
