I have not posted about the NSA stuff as I am seriously confused. I have long had qualms about Obama's domestic justice stuff, but I am not a big fan of leaking and running to Honk Kong. This stuff is far out of my expertise (that does not usually stop me, of course). But I am going to sit this one out for now.
The only thing I can think right now is--holy principal agent problems! Turtles all the way down indeed.
