Critics of the DOJ McMemo Say It Changes Little

Story here today on Law.com as to the McNulty Memo and whether it realistically alters the prior 603021_memo Thompson Memo.  Quoted critics say that it just drives the prosecutorial tactics or demands underground, sort of "don't ask, don't tell."  I argued on LPB here, last month, that the new DOJ policy was tweaking, semantics, and mainly a publicity stunt -- as long as the carrot-stick ratio remains the same.  Ultimately so far I would say that it is really just the McNulty Pocket Part.  [Alan Childress]
