Here's a story not getting much play -- hideous prosecutorial abuse by the Justice Department, but against a target nearly as reviled in the public eye as terrorists. (Doug Pappas had the story first.)

Look, I know that the president said steroids were very naughty, and those overpayed pampered athletes have it coming to them yadda yadda yadda, but scooping up the test results from baseball players who had no connection to BALCO whatsoever is a gross violation of those players' rights. It would be like investigating a business for money laundering and then seizing the financial records of everyone living in the same city who had a bank balance over $50,000.

But that (and the constant leaks) is pretty much SOP for Ashcroft's mob.

UPDATE: Follow-up from Pappas.
