Kerry statement about Roberts stalling Intel Probe -
I highly recommend reading the link to the Globe article, too, as it links the Intel probe with the Rove leak. Really dynamite stuff. I copied the whole Globe article and sent it to my local paper.


Senate Intelligence Committee Probe on Pre-War Intelligence Stalls
July 27th, 2005

For eight months, The Boston Gobe is reporting, the Senate Intelligence Committee has made little effort to pursue its long-promised probe into whether the Bush administration intentionally misconstrued intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war an investigation that would have delved into whether White House aides tried to put pressure on CIA analysts.

Last year, Pat Roberts, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee vowed that soon after the presidential election was over, his panel would examine whether Bush or his top aides misled the public about prewar intelligence, or pressured CIA agents to make a stronger case for invading Iraq.


{SNIP}
Senator John F. Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts, said the fact that there has been no investigation of the misuse of intelligence means US policy may still be based on mistaken conclusions.

A year and a half later, theres still no report, no conclusions, no accountability for the mistakes, and no way to be sure they wont be repeated, said Kerry. This is just further evidence of a pattern by this White House and the Republicans in Congress to stop at nothing to discredit their critics and silence the tough questions before they get asked.

1. good article in the Globe
they put 2 and 2 together and they remind people that Pat Roberts still owes us "Phase 2."

So what's he doing starting a brand new investigation into Fitzgerald? No one ever asked for that, let's have Phase 2, now!

2. My personal theory is that Roberts is attacking Fitz as a pre-emptive
strike because he fears that Fitz will notice how Roberts used the Intel Report to PLANT antiWilson talking points for Rove, and ask for Roberts, Blount and Hatch to testify under oath.

Funny, how Roberts stepped up the anti-Fitz plan AFTER many odf us wrote to news outlets questioning Roberts' conclusions on Wilson in hios addendum.
