And while the Wall Street Journal helps get things right, George Will has joined the NYT's amen chorus, getting it most sincerely wrong.
Will's column in today's WaPo begins by charging the president with breaking the law and goes down hill from there at an ever-accelerating speed.
Will's worst point -- which makes me wonder which Washington he's been observing since 9-11 -- is that if the president wanted more power (carrying forward Will's comprehensively wrong assumption that the president needed more to do the domestic intel gathering) he could have asked Congress for it. And that the ever-compliant Congress would have obliged quickly. This is an argument that is, simply, insidious.
