Shh! Bush is listening!

David Rivkin and Lee Casey, both lawyers in the Reagan and H.W. Bush administrations, have an op-ed in the New York Times which is a slam-dunk defense of Bush and his so-called “eavesdropping”.

The amazing thing is that this op-ed, in utter contradiction with NYT editorial policy (“if it’s Bush rage, it’s front page”), didn’t create a black hole from which not even Valerie Plame could escape.

The New York Times had previously broken the “big story” that Bush was illegally snooping on people, unconstitutionally and in just plain nasty ignorance of the Bill of Rights– which, of course, is the job of New York Times reporters and not the president.

Forget the fact that, in 1982, the Times reported, in a very nonchalant manner, that a court ruled that wiretapping messages to and from overseas locations could legally be intercepted.

Bush was angered at the Times story and reportedly tried to get them not to run it, claiming it compromised national security, but liberals like Newsweek’s Jonathan Alter say Bush was just trying to save his ass.

Given the track record of the New York Times, not to mention Newsweek’s flushed credibility, I’m willing to err on the side of believing Bush, along with Rivkin and Casey.
