Not Just the NSA : Pentagon Spying on Anti-War Activists

Howie has sworn to me that if the Bush administration is doing more than monitoring legitimate terrorist targets, and is deliberately spying on innocent US citizens, that he would (FINALLY) be outraged. "Hang the Basta--!" is what I believe he said (correct me if I'm wrong, Howie).

Well, Howie, like the rest of the right, has more ways of wriggling out of tight corners than Houdini, so I'm not sure that this will impress him, but Michael Isikoff reports in this week's Newsweek that the Pentagon has its own program of domestic spying that is looking at people who could be characterized as nothing more than opponents of the Bush administration.
