Republicans Block Inquiry into Contractors
Nancy Pelosi just finished speaking. I saw some of the proceedings earlier on CSPAN, and didn't realize what they were doing. The dems wanted an amendment to the resolution condemning the treatment of the prisoners. It would have called for a look into the situation of using private contractors for this type of intel work. The republicans used procedural tricks to block it from the amendment.

As Nancy asked..."It makes one wonder why they wouldn't want that looked into."

true national security-this has been going on since 1947 and the foundation of US intelligence community which included Nazis and organized crime members that had found a political home in the RW of the Republican Party.
