Darkness at noon [Washington Post] The FBI is investigating the House and Senate intelligence committees for leaking the NSA "tomorrow is zero hour" intercept from 9/10, which they didn't translate until 9/12.
Vice President Cheney telephoned Goss and Graham [the comittee chairmen] to chastise them for the disclosures, while presidential spokesman Ari Fleischer said the information was "alarmingly specific" and could compromise the war on terrorism. Administration officials said the leaks could be a federal crime.
Update 8/5: Long civil liberties article from the Sunday Times.
