It seems that Pres. Bush has blocked the Office of Professional Responsibility's probe into the NSA wiretapping scandal by denying them security clearance. In the 31 years of it's existence the OPR has investigated many very highly classified programs, and never before has it been prevented from investigating them. Link.

Never before has a presidential administration realized (and not been prevented by inconvenient morality) that they can use their power to block investigations that might harm them.

This issue should have congress running through the streets with torches, but it's likely going to be an uphill battle that has trouble getting public attention.
