Homeland Security, round 2

From the Times:

Michael Chertoff, a federal judge who was an architect of the administration's approach to fighting terrorism when he was a Justice Department official, was nominated by President Bush today to be the next secretary of homeland security.


Mr. Chertoff had been the Senate Republicans' chief counsel during the Whitewater investigation into President Bill Clinton's and his wife's business affairs.


In recent years, he has been best known for helping to craft the Bush administration's anti-terrorism campaign following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Mr. Chertoff, who was head of the Justice Department's criminal division, was a proponent of military tribunals to try prisoners held at the Guantánamo Bay naval base in Cuba after the American-led campaign in Afghanistan.

Best to put a witchhunter at the head of the witchhunting department is the logic I guess.
