On the Floor of the Senate
Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) is talking about the State of the Union speech debacle as I type. When asked this morning about the White House knowing that the Iraqi information was false, Condi Rice said the CIA told them it was credible. Within the hour George Tenet said they did no such thing. Senator Durbin is horrified that someone in the State Department, CIA, National Security Council, or White House lied to Our President.
He is calling for Our President to demand an investigation. Surely he wants to know who is lying to him, right? He is also horrified that Our President is overseas when these important matters are coming to light and suggests that he needs to be back here taking care of business. Senator Durbin also suggests that if Our President doesn't call for an investigation the Senate may have to force one.
