'The Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute has barely begun its review of Carnivore, an electronic-surveillance system being used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but already a Congressional leader is branding the review a "sham."
Richard K. Armey, the Texas Republican who is majority leader of the House of Representatives, criticized the Justice Department on Thursday for selecting the research institute, a nonprofit affiliate of I.I.T., because one member of the institute's review team worked for the Clinton administration and another was once an employee of the Justice Department.'
Ok, who's actually surprised by this? Raise your hands...
That's what I thought.
