The name I've chosen comes from "Lord of the Rings," when Gandalf faces down the Balrog in the Mines of Moria. My Hebrew name is Esther (which is related to the word for "hidden" or "secret") Serafina (which means "burning"). This seems appropriate because although I don't usually put myself forward, I do care very passionately about a lot of things. Maybe through these blogs I can share some of these passions, as well as less weighty ideas and opinions, with others.

An intriguing possibility

Did warrantless spying program target journalists?

This would be a good explanation for why they didn't want to go to the FISA court.

Another post (I forget where I read it but I think it was somewhere on The Huffington Post earlier today) suggests that could also be one reason why the administration fought so hard against releasing the NSA intercepts that John Bolton had requested - that they might be from this program.
