A Boston Globe editorial writes that the disclosure that the  Bush Administration asked the CIA to help discredit a blogger who was critical of the Iraq war should be treated as the possible relapse of a
bad disease.
This is not just any blogger but the greatly admired (from the left)  Professor Juan Cole;  Professor of History at the University of Michigan.
On his blog Informed Comment Cole states that Mike Rogers (R-MI) refuses to have the House intelligence committee look into it, trying to kick it to Eric Holder at the Department of Justice.
Salon has put together a reading list 2005 to 2006 a collection of his pieces from the time he was reportedly under the CIA’s watch.
There is concern that Feinstein may try to shut the investigation down.
Any investigation of the Bush administration investigating and trying to discredit Cole would be welcome as it would continue to pull at the thread
that is the Obama protection of the  crimes of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, David Addington, John Yoo, Alberto Gonzales, Douglas Feith to name but a few.
I have this fantasy that as Obama is sworn in for his second term where all the great and the good of the recent past are in attendance
that suddenly a few are surrounded by the the boys in blue who take them away to be judged by their peers preferably in the ICC.
As I say it’s a fantasy, and it’s just a fantasy because we seem to be having to live with Post-legal America.
