Covert Domestic Propaganda

-- by Dave Johnson

I'm watching the NSA spying hearings. Senator Feinstein just asked Attorney General Gonzales if the President has authorized the use of covert domestic propaganda intended to influence domestic politics. Gonzales refused to answer. Said he is not comfortable answering that. Then he went on to say that the President has inherent constitutional authority...

"Can the President suspend in secret or otherwise the application of section 503 of the national security act which states that no covert action may be conducted with is intended to influence United State political processes, public opinion, policies or media. In other words can he engage in otherwise illegal propaganda."

Is that Feinstein's question? It isn't Torture Boy is it? Very unclear, Dave.

Maybe you should structure it:

Feinstein asked:
Quoted-question (with ?)
Tirture boy said blah blah...
