And, Kicking Ass notes it looks like the Justice Department gave the White House Counsel's office a heads-up and 12 hour pass on its order to preserve documents.

The department notified the counsel's office about 8:30 p.m. Monday that it was launching an investigation but said the White House could wait until the next morning to notify staff and direct them to preserve relevant material, McClellan said.

It's just silly to say this Administration can investigate itself. Left Coaster has a wrap-up of the reasons the Conservatives have given for appointment of special counsel. Now, of course, they try to wiggle out from under.
