Spying on Christiane Amanpour

The Chimes at Midnight picks up on the Americablog report on NBC's scrubbed transcript and adds some important background:

Dunno what it all means, but a mere two weeks ago I opined that we'd soon find out that the President was wiretapping Senator Kerry and his campaign staff. We seem to a bit closer to that revelation after a mere fourteen or so days.

Amanpour is married to Jamie Rubin himself a former Clinton Administration Official and a Foreign Policy adviser to Wesley Clark and John Kerry....and reasonable tap on her communications would have to include material germane to his political activities last year.

More material for the Bush as Nixon comparison.

UPDATE: CNN has reported an administration denial of the story.
