Two Questions for Paul Krugman on the Diane Rehm Show

1. Are you aware of the May 5, 2006 executive memo, entered into the Federal Register and reported on only by Dawn Kopecki in, in which Mr. Bush delegated to then intelligence czar John Negroponte the usually- presidential authority to excuse publicly traded companies from their usual accounting and securities-disclosure obligations in the name of national security?

Apparently the same day he signed it, Porter Goss resigned.

Yet, aside from Ms. Kopecki, and an interview she had on the May 24th morning Marketplace Report, this has been ignored.

To me, it seems significant.

2. I was glad to see you as a guest on Real Time with Bill Maher, but I was ultimately very frustrated because Tucker Carlson clearly has a goal of not allowing the truth to be heard. The one time you got through his wall of noise, it was great, but isn't it time to get past manners and tell someone like him, whose connections to the Neocons are familial, to stop bullying Americans into doubting reason?
