Another Blogger for the Administration?: From Al Kamen in the Washington Post: "There's talk that Phillip Carter, who used to write the popular Intel Dump blog for The Washington Post's Web site, is penciled in to be named deputy assistant secretary of defense for detainee affairs, overseeing such places as the Guantanamo Bay and Bagram detention facilities." I hope the talk is well-informed, and that the penciling in becomes more permanent. (Thanks to Adam White, a fellow Slate Convictions alumnus along with Phil and I, for the link.)
