Poindexter Expected to Quit – Hurray!

John Poindexter is expected to quit his position at the Pentagon over the ‘terrorism futures’ market flap. I never even heard about this issue, what with having a real job to do, but any reason to get rid of this Contra-gate alumn is a good one.

Perhaps J.P.’s Total Information Awareness program will fall by the wayside when and if he leaves the helm. Or perhaps someone less controversial but no less dictatorial will drive it to its full repressive potential…

Note to self: did I just agree with Barbara Boxer, arch-communist from California, about an issue? Strange days indeed.
