Benjamin WittesLichtblau's account of the Times's deliberations over the NSA story is detailed and interesting, and his report of the vigor with which the administration attempted to quash the story—the repeated meetings he and his editors had with numerous top-level administration officials, including one the publisher and executive editor of the newspaper had with Bush himself—is illuminating. Lichtblau also offers fascinating accounts of battles within the administration, some previously well-known, others less so. And he gives a lengthy catalogue of apparently innocent people harmed by the administration's new policies; these stories will give pause even to hardened supporters of strong antiterrorism policies.
