All you need to know about the Dems and the "Phase II Investigation" by the Senate Intelligence Committee. From Harry Reid's office (source is Kos, though):
For more than two years we have been seeking this investigation. Finally thru the course of this closed session we were able to get the attention of the majority and lock in (with a timeline) the commitment of the senate intelligence committee to investigate how intelligence was manipulated and manufactured with. Its an investigation we desperately need.
I'm not sure why we need an investigation when Harry Reid purports to know that the intelligence was manipulated & manufactured (with?).
When you become a registered Democrat, apparently in addition to your registration card, you receive a tinfoil hat. The extreme elements of the Left have apparently taken over the entire Democratic party. Nevermind all of the evidence to the contrary that Saddam had WMD; nevermind his ties to terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda (although not "operational tie"s to 9/11, he certainly had ties); nevermind that an Iraqi delegation actually made a trip to Niger, consistent with Bush's claim that "Saddam sought yellowcake from Niger"; nevermind that the French, the Russians, the UN, the Brits, the Saudis, [insert country here], believed that Saddam had WMDs - it all is cast aside when it comes time for the Democrats to play politics.
You just knew that when the polls started to dip on the war in Iraq that the Dems would cave... How many actually think that the Dems would be taking these extreme measures if a Gallup poll showed slightly higher numbers than they do today? [sarcasm on] It's great to know that you can count on the Democrats to make the tough decisions and live up to our former President's claim claim that we would "bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe..." [/sarcasm off]
And then they wonder why the American people don't trust them on National Security and the War On Terror. I s'pose that when you try and undermine the war effort at every turn, you shouldn't be surprised.
