The Mute Speaks
At long last, even the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee has had enough of Bush's bullshit.
Today, the New York Times reports that Sen. Pat Roberts, R-KS., after months and years of waiting for the administration to furnish necessary documents to finalize his committee's investigation into prewar intelligence, "chastised the White House for efforts to classify most of the part that examines intelligence provided to the Bush administration by the Iraqi National Congress, an exile group."
“I have been disappointed by this administration’s unwillingness to declassify material contained in these reports, material which I believe better informs the public, but that does not — I repeat, does not — jeopardize intelligence operations, sources and methods,” Mr. Roberts said in a statement issued Thursday.Funny what a dip in the polls and menacing loomings will do to the the backbone of even the most boot-licking, yes-man in the Senate. oh yea, survival kicks in!
