Democracy is spreading
according to a Freedom House report
Reports of increased freedom emerged from Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the Palestinian territories, and observers attributed the results to the Bush administration’s support of fledgling democracies worldwide.
The findings were released yesterday as part of Freedom House’s Freedom in the World 2006 report, a global survey of political rights and civil liberties published annually by the organization since 1972.
NSA and the law: what the Times didn’t print is the title of Michelle Malkin’s round-up, where she comments (emphasis mine),

How pathetic is that?
