I seem to have been a busy little bee this past week, so for those of you who aren’t following me on Twitter, here’s what I’ve gotten up to instead of, you know, blogging here:
- In an essay for Newsweek, I argue that Barack Obama should withdraw his threat to veto added GAO oversight of the intelligence community.
- In a piece for The American Prospect, I argue why a proposed change to the FBI’s authority to issue National Security Letters for Internet transactional data ought to be extremely worrying.
- If you’re tired of reading for the week—and I don’t blame you—I discuss both of those things in a new Cato Daily Podcast.
- Or there’s video: The New York Times website picked up a clip of my longer BloggingHeads dialog with Stewart Baker.
- Finally, I’ve got an article in the new print issue of National Review (on newsstands now!) arguing that conservatives ought to regard the sprawling intelligence sector with the same skeptical eye they would any other arm of Big Government.
