In Defense of the Office of Legal Counsel:

This interesting letter to the editor appeared today in the Washington Post (via Howard). There isn’t much there in the way of content — given that this is only a letter to the editor and many of the details are classified, that isn’t unexpected — but the fact that the group felt motivated to object to the earlier Post editorial (and thus, indirectly, this NYT story) seems notable. Or at least it seems that way to me, in part because I know and trust a number of the individuals represented by the letter.
