Lichtblau has written a surprisingly up to date review of a host of issues from Ashcroft through FISA and Gonzales to rendition, torture, wiretapping and of course, the firing of Federal prosecutors. I was most interested in Lichtblau's sympathetic portraits of people like John Yoo and Alberto Gonzales.
