WHAT DID DHS KNOW? Jeff Stein reports that some members of Congress are asking questions about whether the Department of Homeland Security may have had access, via its NSA liaison, to the NSA's illegal wiretap and phone record surveillance programs. This would be the same Department of Homeland Security, we recall, whose operatives were used to help Tom DeLay try to resolve a partisan dispute in the Texas legislature and that did such a heck of a job in New Orleans.
