Some readers have written in to suggest that the Hoekstra-Bush brushup reported in today’s NYT is less about legally questionable intelligence programs that have yet to be disclosed and more about a power play between different factions in the Administration, represented by the Rumsfeld’s Pentagon on one side (which Hoekstra supports) and DNI/CIA on the other.

My own sense is that both are probably at play, but that post-9/11 intelligence programs that have yet to be vetted by Congress probably have greater implications than the outcome of bureaucratic powerplays.

But for an alternative view, go see emptywheel’s post.
