More good investigations into things we actually need investigated.

The Justice Department has opened an investigation into the leak of classified information about President Bush’s secret domestic spying program, Justice officials said Friday. The officials, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, said the inquiry will focus on disclosures to The New York Times about warrantless surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

A actual crime has actually been committed here, not by the president, and we need to find out by whom.

What a waste…

Posted by Mark on December 30, 2005

of our money.

Things like this are the very reason I want a smaller more accountable federal government. Big, bureaucratic governments do this type of thing.

Nevada tanning salon gets 9/11 loan

A Texas golf course, a Nevada tanning salon and an Illinois candy shop were among small businesses that may have improperly received U.S. subsidized loans intended for firms hurt by the September 11 attacks, an internal government watchdog has found.

The Small Business Administration’s inspector general said in a report made public on Wednesday that in 85 percent of the sample of loans it reviewed, a company’s eligibility to receive the money through the program could not be verified.

A leading Senate Republican called for further investigation, but the Small Business Administration said the program was properly implemented. – (source)

Now this IS the type of stuff that need to be investigated, a pure and simple waste of our money, contrary to both the spirit and the wording of the law.
