Report: Feds spying on NYT's James Risen in CIA leak probe

From Politico: "Federal investigators trying to find out who leaked information about a CIA attempt to disrupt Iran's nuclear program obtained a New York Times reporter's three private credit reports, examined his personal bank records and obtained information about his phone calls and travel, according to a new court filing."


  1. If Iran was using Fortran or Cobal I’d be more inclined to believe the CIA was equal to the task. Holorith card sorts even more likely.

    1. The Van Buren administration would have given the go-ahead on this, if someone had explained what internet was.

  2. You know, I think I don’t care if, in the name of not letting horrible people get nuclear weapons, some other horrible people look at my bank records. I’m pretty boring.

    Security through obscurity is quite enough to keep away the paranoia.
