You think he's gonna listen to you Congressman?

White House kept "major program" secret
By Alan Elsner 1 hour, 31 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Bush administration was running several intelligence programs, including one major activity, that it kept secret from Congress until whistle-blowers told the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, the committee's chairman said on Sunday.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, a Michigan Republican who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said on Fox News Sunday he had written a four-page to
President George W. Bush in May warning him that the failure to disclose the intelligence activities to Congress may be a violation of the law.
And what, pray tell, was the good congressman's reasoning? Why, just what us commie terrorist supporters on the left have been saying all along.
He said he did not expect to be briefed about everything intelligence agencies were doing but at least one of the secret activities was a major program which Congress definitely should have been informed about.

In the letter, Hoekstra said the lack of disclosure possibly constituted a "breach of responsibility by the administration, a violation of the law, and, just as importantly, a direct affront to me and the members of this committee who have so ardently supported efforts to collect information on our enemies."

Thanks to an anonymous commenter for straightenin' me out on Hoekstra's congressional status.

That chimp's head ain't just shakin' at other folk, and no doubt about it. {-;


  1. Hoekstra just a Representative, not a "Senator". Just pointing that out.

  2. LOL! Thanks!

    I have NO Idea why I said otherwise. Will change it.
