DoJ investigating DoJ's decision to approve warrantless domestic wiretaps

Justice Dept. is probing OK for Bush's spying:
The Justice Department has begun an internal inquiry into the conduct of its lawyers who examined the Bush administration's domestic eavesdropping program, the department disclosed Wednesday.

The investigation is being conducted by the Office of Professional Responsibility, or OPR, which reviews allegations of misconduct within the law enforcement agency.
This seems like it would take some really special sort of prosecutor to look into it, some independent sort of counsel whose actions wouldn't be interfered with by higher ranking people. Just to be sure, you know.
