53. Dick Durbin and many in Congress knew
Edited on Sat Jan-06-07 09:40 AM by symbolman
they demanded more than the NIE and were supplied by Tenent instead with a White Paper that had been written BY THE WHITE HOUSE.

Durbin also said that there were things he couldn't reveal, as it was a national security issue. So in some cases they were screwed.

I spent a year investigating and doing research on the plame incident, and it's obvious to anyone that spends a little time on the web that Congress was LIED to.

As one poster said, only the Republican leadership was allowed any real info, and even that was cherry picked, don't forget that Rumsfeld had his OWN operation going, as well as Bolton pulling shit in the State Dept, demanding raw intell then kicking Powell's boys out of his meetings, saying he wanted to "keep it in the family".

And let us not forget the USE of the NYTIMES to catapault the propaganda.

There's plenty of info out there, go poke around please.

I don't mean to argue with your points and intentions as I find them perfectly valid.

But the web is not a fountain of truth either. :)
