Hey, you probably read about how the White House paid retired generals to deceive people.

Funny story… turns out that it sure looks illegal.

The Pentagon military analyst program unveiled in last week's exposé by David Barstow in the New York Times was not just unethical but illegal. It violates, for starters, specific restrictions that Congress has been placing in its annual appropriation bills every year since 1951. According to those restrictions, "No part of any appropriation contained in this or any other Act shall be used for publicity or propaganda purposes within the United States not heretofore authorized by the Congress."

Congress has given up it's role of oversight of the executive branch in favor of oversight of professional baseball.
Ironic the New York Times broke the story, home to star reporters like Michael Gordon and Judy Miller (retired).
