GOP House Revolts
In a news alert, Buzzflash notifies readers that the House Judiciary Committee "passed a resolution calling on the Bush Administration to disclose its role in the NSA’s telephone monitoring program."
Oh, oh! It sure looks like the natives are getting restless; and ain't gonna take it no more.
Several Republican congressmen joined Democrats in approving the resolution in a voice vote today. Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) even challenged Bush by threatening to put the measure up before the full House if the Administration does not comply.Like Buzzflash notes, Republicans are getting sick and tired of Bush trashing the constitution.
Only yesterday, 23 Republicans "broke ranks" with their leadership and "support[ed] an amendment that would prohibit electronic surveillance without a warrant."
