That Karl Rove is always thinking. With Bush offering to share with Congress some of the secrets behind the NSA domestic spying program, one can make the strong case it's a ploy to keep key congressional folks quiet. Show them the details, much of it being classified, and therefore such folks must by rule remain quiet as per what they saw/heard. Call it the Medusa tactic.

Speaking of quiet, Verizon technically may properly claim that it did not give phone records to the NSA, but this may be a bit deceptive in that they route long-distance calls -- the targeted calls -- through carriers such as AT&T, which by the way has remained very quiet....
