    OT: the bungled wiretapping of Sen. Landrieu’s office by four young Republicans is getting a lot of attention. One of them, Stan Dai, has ties to intelligence agencies:

    “According to information Dai posted in September 2007 on the university’s online alumni directory, he lived in Naperville, Ill., helped run a “Defense Deparment regional defense counterterrorism/irregular warfare program” and then became assistant director of the Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence at Trinity Washington University, which prepares undergraduates for careers in intelligence.”
