EDITORIAL: Justice on the Mend

Washington Post: "THERE HAVE been several hopeful developments since the arrival of Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey at the Justice Department in early November.

Within days of Mr. Mukasey's confirmation, the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility proceeded with an investigation, stifled earlier by the White House, concerning the administration's terrorist surveillance program. While the department's inspector general has already been looking into the matter, allowing the OPR investigation to go forward sends an important symbolic message, especially in light of critics' concerns that the probe had been quashed for political reasons."
