DoJ Site: What NSA Spy Scandal? No Releases Here

I don't mean to be rude, but why the hell has the U.S. Justice Department still not posted an explanation, rationale, press release or briefing paper on its web site about the National Security Agency domestic spy scandal?

It's been four days since the New York Times' web site posted the story it held for a year about the NSA surveillance program, and that's apparently not been enough time for the Justice Department to provide the American public with some sort of statement on the matter.

No press releases about the spying here.

And the only released from Justice today is about a $10 million fine for covering up oil pollution.

Speaking of covering up bad things, when does Justice see fit to inform the public about the NSA spying with papers detailing a defense of the surveillance?
