Spy Talk

The New York Times is once again leading the charge in the investigation of the Bush Administration's approval of spying on Americans.

The Times has been criticized, with some justification, for holding on to the original spying story for too long before running it. But let's remember that its reporters were the only ones to dig out this controversial story in the first place.
