JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Whoops. Strike that: the sky is not falling. But it’ll probably fall soon. So Dems should still give in, pronto. From The Washington Post:

The Bush administration said yesterday that the government “lost intelligence information” because House Democrats allowed a surveillance law to expire last week, causing some telecommunications companies to refuse to cooperate with terrorism-related wiretapping orders.

But hours later, administration officials told lawmakers that the final holdout among the companies had relented and agreed to fully participate in the surveillance program, according to an official familiar with the issue.

Laura Rozen has the bizarre press release the DNI and AG sent out yesterday.
