the last two graphs do not add up to me. one says that the justice dept has not started looking into illegalities of the nsa intercepts, and the next graph says the head of the the justice dept has said the intercepts are legal. --Cogito1 20:47, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

You read it wrong; the Justice Dept. is investigating the leak - not the program itself.

international is more accurate / article text changed

Appears the NSA was proactive in its involvement, but the shut down, or nod to go ahead, seems clearly at the hands of the administration. -Edbrown05 10:59, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
