5. Murtha could be Hersh's source
Edited on Sat Apr-08-06 09:50 AM by Rose Siding
edit- one of his sources, I mean. We know the Queen of All Iraq will futz with the way a source is described -I doubt Hersh has the same, um, ethical standard.

In recent weeks, the President has quietly initiated a series of talks on plans for Iran with a few key senators and members of Congress, including at least one Democrat. A senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, who did not take part in the meetings but has discussed their content with his colleagues, told me that there had been no formal briefings, because theyre reluctant to brief the minority. Theyre doing the Senate, somewhat selectively.

The House member said that no one in the meetings is really objecting to the talk of war. The people theyre briefing are the same ones who led the charge on Iraq. At most, questions are raised: How are you going to hit all the sites at once? How are you going to get deep enough? (Iran is building facilities underground.) Theres no pressure from Congress not to take military action, the House member added. The only political pressure is from the guys who want to do it. Speaking of President Bush, the House member said, The most worrisome thing is that this guy has a messianic vision.
