"Weapons of Mass Bulgar Wheat"?

The Washington Post / CNN media critic Howard Kurtz says:

"I bring all this up, of course, because of the furious debate over the warrantless NSA eavesdropping. Just as White House officials insist the program is tightly focused on potential terrorists, Pentagon and FBI spokesmen maintain that they are not investigating or interfering with legitimate political dissent.

But PETA? Vegans? Catholic Workers? No wonder there's considerable skepticism."

and this related Salon post by Peter Daou (via BoingBoing) is sad -- because it's probably true.
