What an interesting coincidence

Duke Cunningham corruption case were looking into efforts by top Department of Defense appointees "to set up their own domestic surveillance and spying operations . . . quite likely well outside the bounds of American law," including potential domestic surveillance of U.S. citizens through a program called TALON, in which key contracts went to Cunningham's bribers, "somehow the entire record of the TALON program, every report that had been collected, was scrubbed."
